From 2010-2012, FEMA reported that confined fires including those relating to fires originating in chimneys accounted for approximately 84 per cent of residential building fires in the US. These types of fires have resulted in death or injury and millions of dollars in property loss. The statistics are sobering and many of these fires could have been prevented by aprofessional cleaning of the chimney. Right and Clean is the company that can provide professional chimney sweep services in the Atlanta GA area.
Unfortunately, most people are not informed on the importance of keeping their chimney clean. Poor chimney maintenance can cause substantial property damage and can even lead to injury and death. Creosote, a by-product of combustion, can accumulate over time in a chimney. Creosote is very flammable and as it accumulates it can ignite the inside surface of the chimney resulting in a chimney fire.
Our experts work to ensure that your chimney is clean to the highest standards and that you and your family can rest comfortably knowing that your home is safe against the potential of a house fire starting from your chimney. In Atlanta GA a chimney fire is a favorite winter activity. Our chimney cleaning services help to prevent any possibility of a house fire by reducing the build-up of creosote. Additionally, chimney cleaning helps reduce the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide when emitted and ingested in significant doses can be life threatening. In fact carbon monoxide poisoning claims on average 4000 Americans every year.
In many cases carbon monoxide poisoning occurs due to lack of ventilation because of blocked chimneys. Chimneys can be blocked for a number of reasons including nesting birds or the flue becoming degraded. Right and Clean is available to find the problem and clean it. The Chimney Safety Institute strongly recommends that householders who use their fireplaces more than three times a week during the winter season have their chimney professionally clean yearly.
