Tis the Season for Chimney Cleaning

It’s August and you are probably still thinking about summer activities like swimming and grilling. But fall and winter will be here before you know it, so it’s time to start thinking about cold weather chores. One of the most important is chimney cleaning and making sure yours is safe to use this winter when you need it the most. Whether you are a home owner, business owner or both, our commercial cleaning services in the Twin Cities area can help. Here are a few reasons you should look into this type of cleaning service.

When you light a fire in your fireplace, the smoke and other toxic fumes need to be vented out of your home or business and into the air, where they can safely dissipate and not harm anyone. Chimney cleaning gets rid of creosote, which is a byproduct of burning wood in your fireplace. The creosote can build up and ignite, which can turn into a fire before you know it.

If your home’s or business’ chimney has not been cleaned in awhile, it could also be a carbon monoxide hazard too. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, tasteless and odorless gas that can cause a variety of health issues. And, if left unchecked, it can even prove fatal. Working carbon monoxide detectors can alert you and your building’s occupants if high levels of this toxic gas are detected, but in order to keep this from being a problem in the first place, chimney cleaning can help.

Commercial cleaning services like Metro Cleaning Service can come out and take care of this task for you. That way, you get the peace of mind you deserve knowing your loved ones or your building’s occupants are safe from the threat of carbon monoxide poisoning or a fire.

Regular chimney cleaning – at least once a year either before or after winter – can also help keep your chimney in good condition. We can make sure that there are no birds or other critters nesting in there as well. That could save you some hassle and expense in the long run.

We feel that chimney cleaning and our other commercial cleaning services are an important part of keeping your loved ones or your employees and customers safe and healthy.
