A particular hazardous chimney material everyone should be aware of is creosote. The amount of creosote released into the chimney depends on the wood that is burned in your fireplace. This means you should avoid pine. Although pine is beautiful, the tree is responsible for high levels of the hazardous substance. Oh, the irony. Most people are unaware of the correlation between the burning of the wood and the production of fumes. There really should be a handy chart next to everyone's chimney.
In order to efficiently clean the interior, chimney experts use specific tools. These devices normally include a brush, vacuum and safe chemicals to remove soot. It is unlikely that you will ever see a chimney sweep covered in soot. This is a stereotype from back in the day. And it's quite hazardous to your health.
Mount Vernon is the eighth largest city in the state and the second most densely populated. Which means there are chimneys everywhere that should receive proper inspection and renovation.
If your home or business requires a replacement chimney liner, we recommend a stainless steel or FuranFlex liner. The latter will not corrode and is as strong as an ox. It may even be as strong as two oxen. The tube is inserted and expanded to fit the chimney interior. Put the cap on and you're good to go. While liners are super necessary, caps are just as mandatory. Afterall, we don't want squirrels or raccoons falling down there.
Just like a vehicle, all functions and parts of the chimney work together to operate as one complete unit. The periodic cleaning, along with a firm liner and cap, will assure a healthy environment.
