Does my chimney need servicing?

National Fire Protection Code 211 requires an annual inspection of all chimney systems. Here’s why: In a wood burning system, incomplete combustion results in unburned residue which rises in the chimney as part of the smoke. The residue is deposited on the inside of the chimney walls, presenting a major fire hazard to the home. Gas and oil flues should also be checked on an annual basis for any soot deposits or debris blockage which could lead to dangerous carbon monoxide poisoning. A chimney professional can sweep the inside of your chimney to eliminate these dangers. Learn more about chimney services here.

“I had Terry and Lee come out for our initial chimney sweep moving into a 30-year old home. They both pointed out issues that we were not even aware of (and that hadn't made it on our inspection). Terry gave us advice on how to fix the problems. After a 30 year old home, and the chimney had never been cleaned, I will definitely be using Valley every year!!”
