We cannot stress enough that all chimneys on Long Island need to be cleaned and inspected regularly, no matter what they’re connected to. Any chimney can result in the following fire hazards if it is not properly maintained:
Over time, a coating of creosote is built up inside of these kinds of Long Island chimneys. If these chimneys are not properly maintained, the creosote develops into a thick glaze that is extremely flammable and difficult to remove. Because it is so thick, it can only be removed by multiple chemical treatments, which can be costly and take multiple visits. Avoid this scenario by servicing your Long Island chimney and fireplace once a year.
While burning, these chimneys tend to create soot and clay from the lining over a period of time. When they’re not properly cleaned, the soot and clay will continue to build up and fall to the base of the chimney. They will also eventually block your Long Island chimney from pulling the necessary fumes it needs from the burner. The end result is carbon monoxide possibly entering your home. Keep your family safe from this deadly chemical by making sure your chimney is cleaned annually.
Unfortunately, gas chimneys have the potential to be more dangerous than wood or oil chimneys. A gas chimney on Long Island is easier to block, especially if they have an older terra cotta liner that cracks and flakes. This blockage can become deadly, because it creates a backup of carbon monoxide fumes that will enter your home. Carbon monoxide has no smell to it, which makes it hard to detect and puts your home in danger. Avoid any deadly gases from flowing into your home with our Long Island chimney cleaning services.
