Winter is approaching faster than some people would like while others are ready for bonfires and snuggling up with family around the fireplace. Many memories to come around the warmth and enjoying family time. With the festivities coming around the corner, it is important to schedule a routine chimney sweep prior to the first fire. Chimneys need routine maintaining as our vehicles do.
Importance of Chimney Sweeps
In the colder months, fireplaces provide comfort, warmth, and enjoyment. To keep them burning at their best efficiency, it is recommended to have a regular maintenance schedule. Maintaining the proper chimney care and preventative maintenance will ensure you’re chimney to be a source of warmth for years.
One of the best preventive maintenance procedures you can do for your chimney is to have a professional clean it. It does not matter if it is used often or sparingly, an annual chimney cleaning will keep it in tip-top condition for the years to come.
Expectations of Chimney Sweeping
The sole purpose of a professional chimney sweep is to get rid of any blockages, possible safety hazards, and buildup of creosote. Our technicians use special tools and equipment such as a vacuum and brushes designed to take off the ash, soot, and creosote.
Removing the creosote from the flue is extremely crucial because it is the main reason to get your chimney cleaned. The buildups of creosote will put you and your family at higher risks for accidental chimney fires and health hazards.
