    How Often Should You Have Your Chimney Cleaned?

    A clean chimney helps move dangerous smoke and gasses out of your home so you can enjoy the warmth of your fireplace. But how often should it be cleaned? An annual inspection and chimney sweeping can help prevent smoke backup or a fire. But if you’re regularly using your fireplace, you should get a seasonal inspection and cleaning to be safe. For example, you’d want to get your chimney cleaned and inspected before winter when chimneys are used most often.

    How Can I Tell if My Chimney Needs Cleaning?

    Several signs indicate when your chimney needs cleaning. If you notice any of these signs, call our team right away. We’ll help you avoid a potential disaster.

    Signs You Need Chimney Cleaning in Idaho

    • You smell smoke in your home after a fire
    • Soot and ash have stained the fireplace
    • Fires don’t burn as strongly
    • Burning wood creates more smoke than usual
    • Strong odors emit from the fireplace
    • Soot drops into the fireplace
    • Animals have nested in the chimney
    • Black particle deposits are visible within the chimney

    Chimney Sweeping Cost Factors

    Several factors affect the final cost of professional chimney sweeping in Boise. If you haven’t had your chimney cleaned in a while, it’ll likely take longer and require more work to clean it. This will raise the cost of chimney cleaning. Another factor affecting the cost of chimney cleaning is the ease of accessibility. Some chimneys are easy to access, while others may sit atop steeply pitched roofs, making them difficult to reach. As you would expect, hard-to-reach chimneys may end up costing more to clean. You should also consider what other chimney services you may need. Whether it’s a repair, removing debris or animals, or installing a chimney cap—each additional service will add to the total cost.

However, if there’s a major soot build-up, an animal nesting in the chimney, or you just don’t feel comfortable handling it on your own, contact us. Our team can safely handle whatever difficulties you’re facing.
