    Benefits of Smoke Alert’s Chimney Cleaning Services

    Choose Smoke Alert for your chimney sweeping in Raleigh, North Carolina, to experience benefits such as:

    • Certified technicians: We are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), following strict fire codes and regulations. Our technicians are qualified and experienced to deal with all chimney-related issues.
    • Creosote blockage removal: Third-degree creosote buildup is the most flammable and should be removed to prevent fire hazards. We offer this service to ensure minimal fire risk for your safety.
    • Chimney cap inspection: The chimney cap helps keep pests, rain, snow and debris out to prevent damage to your home. We inspect the cap so it fits properly and works as it should.

    How Often Should You Clean Your Chimney?

    Your chimney should be cleaned once a year, and inspections should be done at least twice a year by certified chimney sweepers in Raleigh, North Carolina. This depends on how frequently you use it and the rate at which debris and creosote accumulate. 

    Inspections allow technicians to assess your chimney’s condition and recommend steps to proceed, whether cleaning, repairing or replacing the cap or other parts.  

    Signs Your Chimney Needs Cleaning

    You might notice a few signs that your chimney needs cleaning. These include:

    Smoke-Filled Interior

    Thick, black smoke that fills the air usually indicates a dirty chimney. This inconvenience can cause coughing and make the room dark as the smoke lingers. 

    Soot and Creosote Buildup

    Creosote and soot are by-products of burnt, wet wood. Creosote is thick and sticky and is found inside the flue. Soot resembles ash and floats around the hearth. These build up in and around the flue and can be hazardous due to their flammability. It’s important to remove it professionally before this happens.
