Reasons To Clean Your Chimney
Cleaning your chimney is an essential maintenance task for several reasons. Neglecting chimney maintenance can lead to various problems that affect the safety and efficiency of your fireplace or heating system. Here are some reasons why you should regularly clean your chimney:
FIREPLACE BURNS HOTTER
A clear chimney will allow better flow of oxygen, in turn speeding up the combustion of firewood and delivering more heat (when required)
REDUCE RISK OF FIRE
Built up material within the chimney (including debris collected over summer months) can heat up and cause unexpected fires.
REDUCE GASES IN LOUNGE
A blocked chimney will prevent toxic fumes leaving your fireplace, and ultimately allow them to spill out into your living room.

WHERE THERE’S FIRE, THERE SHOULDN’T BE SMOKE
Aside from making your fireplace work a lot more efficiently, and prevent dangerous toxins from recirculating within your household, prevention of house fires is a primary reason why frequent chimney cleaning and fireplace maintenance is so important. Harm to life and property are frequently attributed to improperly functioning chimneys, all of which could be avoided with regular upkeep. As mentioned earlier, if it isn’t the house on fire that is causing you grief, it’ll likely be the silent toxin that is Carbon Monoxide. This odourless, lethal gas is prevented from escaping through the chimney by build-ups of creosote – commonly referred to as ‘soot’. These particles of carbon are typically released during combustion and float up through the chimney with the hot air, however can build up on the internals of your chimney and quickly narrow the channel. With a solid scrubbing, these deposits are dislodged and collected and removed from your house. All with a smile!

A BIT OF KNOW-HOW
Once your chimney and fireplace are cleaned thoroughly, and all of the seals are working as they should, your fireplace will work much more efficiently – as it was originally designed. Couple that with good quality, dry wood, and you’ll be able to leave your fire on a low setting to burn throughout the night. It is good to give your fireplace a good rip roaring go everynow and then to ensure creosote doesn’t have the opportunity to build up. As soon as you notice decreased performance in your fireplace again, Chimney Clean Melbourne can shoot back and give the flue a quick clean.Buy good quality wood! It makes a huge difference!
As with anything, good quality products lead to good quality results, and the same certainly goes for wood. Dry, dense wood will burn hotter and longer than lightweight pine that is reasonably young. There is a lot of advice on which wood is ideal to burn, and we suggest doing your own research localised to your area – as there will be wood sourced locally that is perfect for you. Of course, this will mean that the wood costs a bit more outright.On average, and Australia house burns about 3 tonnes of wood per winter, which equates to about 2 and a half ‘cords’ (the measure of firewood). This is about 600 pieces of firewood per winter. A ute can fit approximately 80 pieces of firewood in the back, to give you an idea of the volume of this wood.
