What is that Chimney Smell?

Many people notice odors coming from their chimneys even when a fire is not burning or hasn’t been for a long period. There are many factors that produce undesirable odors from a dirty chimney including moisture, humidity, and particle build-up.Chimney Cleaning - Chimney Smell | Doctor Flue

Avoid Shop Vacuums!

Many homeowners think all they have to do is go to their local hardware store, purchase a shop vacuum and clean the chimney, but it’s never a good idea to attempt to vacuum the chimney yourself. The problem is that shop vacuums lack the ability to filter the dust particles, and, as a result, forces those particles back into the room. It then gets picked up by the air condition or heating system in the home and deposits the particles inside the heating ducts. The entire house now has to be cleaned professionally at the cost of thousands of dollars.
