Gas Fireplace Cleaning
Most homeowners know that regular cleaning is required for standard wood fireplaces, do the modern gas fireplaces have the same need? They are burning propane or natural gas, so do they have a fire hazard if ignored? Gas fireplaces do need annual cleaning. Both propane and natural gas are clean burning gas fuels, but they can still produce buildup that needs to be cleaned regularly. Chimney owners need to remember that chimney sweeping and inspection isn’t just for wood fireplaces, it also pertains to gas fireplaces as they can have buildup as well.
A chimney sweep inspection they can spot potential problems early. If you have a leak or a vent that won’t open or close, by catching these potential problems early, the repair for them is often a lot cheaper than if you caught it a few years later. While gas chimneys often don’t need as much cleaning as wood chimneys, they do need regular cleaning. They are just as vulnerable to other chimney problems and we strongly encourage you to have your chimney cleaned and inspected regularly.
