Question: I have a wood burning fireplace. How often should I have the chimney cleaned and swept?
Answer: How often you should have your chimney cleaned depends a lot on the quality (how dry it is) of the wood you are burning and how often you use your wood burning fireplace.
In most cases a chimney connected to a wood burning fireplace should be cleaned or swept at least once a year. The best time is just prior to the season when you will use the fireplace the most, if that is applicable.
