About Washington, DC Chimney and Fireplace Companies

A cozy fall or winter’s night by the fire simply wouldn’t be possible without a fully functional chimney. And without proper maintenance, chimneys can actually become a serious fire hazard, so it’s important to keep them in tiptop shape. With the professional help of a Washington, DC chimney company, you can rest assured that many more cozy nights can be spent worry free around your fireplace and chimney.

Why have a chimney cleaning? The answer is simple: creosote. Creosote is the industry name for soot, the buildup that’s often created by fires. Creosote can act as fuel, so if there’s too much of it on your chimney’s interior, it can ignite. Chimney fires are known for spreading quickly into the roof and walls of a home, and creosote is the most common cause of chimney fires. While you can take steps to minimize the accumulation of creosote, it’s important to ensure the chimney’s proper functioning—and your home’s safety—with annual chimney inspections.

Chimneys should be inspected every year, according to the Chimney Safety Institute of America. A qualified DC-area chimney company will be able to perform every level of inspection—from the basic Level I inspection to the more extensive procedures of Level III. An EBSCO Research Best Pick™ DC chimney cleaner can clean your chimney, update or repair its components, and make your home safer.
