How Can You Prevent A Chimney Fire?
Ensuring the safety and security of your home is a top priority in any family. With that being said, house fires are a large problem within the United States. Here are some tips to help prevent a fireplace fire within your home.
Use proper fuel
Make sure the wood is seasoned and when choosing a type of wood, go for a hardwood like oak, maple, or ash. A few logs of greenwood can build creosote thick enough to start a chimney fire.
Your wood stove or furnace must be installed properly and by a professional. This is to ensure there is proper distance between the flammable parts and the non-combustible parts of the heating system. A wood stove’s chimney must be brick made (masonry) and factory built. Single bricked chimney with no liner must never be used for a wood stove..
Get a professional chimney sweep to inspect your chimney at least annually. This should be even more frequent if the fireplace is lit regularly.
You can also do it yourself by using a brush and rods to clean the chimney flue and stove pipe. This must be done once or twice a year. Avoid using heavy stuff such as bricks or chains on the end of a rope. This can easily damage the chimney’s liner. Your chimney will, however, need a monthly inspection by a professional chimney technician if you use a wood stove.
For DIY purposes, you can check for creosote buildup in the chimney walls using a mirror.
Ensure there is less or no creosote buildup
Creosote is highly flammable and when it is ignited, and it burns with vigor. Creosote is formed when vapor from wet wood mixes with gases and condenses. Chimney professionals state that a ¼in thickness of creosote means your chimney can burst into flames any minute and thus should be removed. In the same breath, do not ignore soot buildup. Soot is softer than creosote, but is equally flammable and should be cleaned up regularly.
Use Smoke Detectors
With the help of smoke detectors, troubleshoot and take action immediately any time smoke is detected indoors. The smoke is most likely a result of a dirty chimney full of debris like dead leaves, twigs, soot or creosote buildup that have resulted in chimney flue blockage. Other causes include soft or wet wood that has not burned completely or a damper that is not fully opened.
Your chimney should have a chimney cap with wire mesh to keep out rainwater, ice, and snow. It should also be used to keep out small animals like squirrels, raccoons and birds from nesting inside the walls.
When installing a chimney liner, go for stainless steel. The stainless steel can endure very high temperatures and also contain flying embers contained.
Installing fireplace glass-doors that are heat proof can also help increase the efficiency of your heating system. The door prevents heat loss and also shields the embers within the fireplace to stop wild sparkles from reaching your house’s interior. The doors should be cleaned regularly with a glass door cleaner and paper towel.
Proper Ventilation is Really Important
Ventilation is one of the most important parts of your home’s heating system. A huge percentage of chimney fires, safe to say 90%, is caused by faults within the venting system. Take note that the venting system is not the same as the chimney system.
The venting system consists of a stove pipe that connects the burning stove to the chimney. Most importantly, we cannot reiterate enough the need for a clean chimney to prevent a chimney fire. The interior of your fireplace has to be cleaned regularly including the hearth. Rid the fireplace of ash but only when it has cooled. And leave just a little that will make lighting the fire easier. Wear protective gear while cleaning your fireplace on your own.
Years of Experience
Hurricane Season Coming Soon
Living in the southern states such as Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia can be difficult with the constant worry of hurricanes. Typically, hurricane season lasts from the beginning of June until the end of November.
Most of the time, hurricane season starts prior to the normal season. Southerners have learned to adjust, but that does not mean our homes have stood up to the time.
The constant rainy to sunny weather takes a toll on our homes, especially our chimneys. Chimneys, especially brick and mortar, are porous and soak up all the moisture and seep down into the chimney system to the home. Water damage in a chimney can cause so many issues down the line.
Harm to the mortar joints throughout the stonework and fireplace, broken or debilitated liners, tops, crowns, or potentially brickwork are all normal issues. Rooftop damages can uncover flashing. Lightning strikes the chimney at the top and goes downward. At that point exits eventually which can be found on the exterior or interior. There is a higher risk of gigantic harm by a lightning strike. Hail harm brings stone face harm and harm to fireplace covers.
According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America, it is significant for property holders to consider how they intend to utilize home warming frameworks or chimneys in the hours and delays after a landfall since the fireplace could make the living space present pointless dangers such as perilous gases.
AllStar Chimney Sweep is here to investigate your chimney inside and out to diagnose the condition of your chimney. Mainly with any prior storm damage.
