Louisville KY Expert Chimney Sweep & Cleaning
Many injuries and fatalities occur every year due to unsafe, neglected chimneys. On average, the loss of property from chimney fires costs an estimated $200 million annually. A damaged, blocked, or deteriorating chimney can lead to a hazardous chimney fire or exposure to hazardous fumes. The recommendation of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is to schedule chimney cleaning and a chimney inspection every year. The fully trained and certified chimney sweep technicians at Louisville Chimney Sweep & Repair, LLC, are proud to be the best choice for chimney sweep services in Louisville and throughout the surrounding area.
Deposits of soot and highly flammable creosote are left behind in the chimney flue every time a fire is burned in your fireplace. Soot is a powder-like substance that consists primarily of carbon. Creosote is found in chimney flues in three different forms, only one of which is easy to remove.
When creosote and soot continue to build up, as a result of lack of cleaning, there is an increased risk that hot embers will cause the flammable deposits to ignite, resulting in a hazardous chimney fire. Continued buildup can also cause blockage in the flue, which can lead to a hazardous release of carbon monoxide fumes into your living space.

When to Schedule Chimney Cleaning
Every year before the arrival of cold weather, it’s important to have your chimney cleaned. It’s a good idea to schedule chimney cleaning in summer, prior to the typical rush in fall. A benefit of scheduling in summer is having a much better chance to have chimney cleaning done at the time most convenient for you.
