Your gas fireplace has a lot less upkeep than a wood-burning fireplace. You don’t have to worry about logs, ash, etc. There are also fewer cleanups when you own a gas fireplace. But, it still needs to be appropriately cleaned and well maintained to ensure your safety.
When you have your fireplace professionally cleaned, it keeps it burning more efficiently and saves you money down the road.
Your fireplace can get junk and debris in the vents, chimney, and flue. This buildup can diminish the airflow in your chimney. This will all be cleaned out through a chimney and fireplace cleaning. When your fireplace is inspected annually, you can keep your family safe and prevent any potential damage done and keep your fireplace burning at optimal performance.
The problems in your fireplace and chimney might not be as visible as they would in a wood-burning fireplace. When your fireplace is cleaned and inspected regularly, you can catch problems before they become more pressing issues. The following are just a few things that should be checked during inspection, repair or cleaning:
1. The damper should be in the correct position, which conserves energy and fireplace safety
2. The chimney will be checked for outside wear and tear
3. The glass is inspected for chips or cracks and cleaned.
4. The log set is checked for deterioration.
5. Creosote is swept from your chimney
Other things will be checked and cleaned during the service to keep your fireplace running as smoothly as possible.
