How Often Should I Have my Fireplace and Chimney Cleaned?
We recommend calling out Alpine Clean Air to inspect and clean your chimney either once per year, or once every 30 to 40 fires. At the very minimum, you should have us out to inspect and clean your chimney every year because of the damage that can be done by the changes in the weather throughout the year. When it comes to chimneys, sooner or more often is always better than waiting too long.
