Does my gas fireplace need swept?

Unless there is nesting material or other debris in your flue system, you should not need to have your chimney swept, however, it should still be inspected yearly by a gas fireplace professional according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). While the serviceman is out, he can determine whether the chimney needs to be swept and will also determine the integrity of the flue system and be sure it is suitable for use.

Regular maintenance will keep your gas logs running efficiently longer; this includes yearly inspections and less invasive, at home maintenance. Using ACS Gas Log Carbon & Soot Remover regularly will help prevent odors and creosote build up if your gas logs begin to work inefficiently.
