Fireplace and chimney cleaning and inspection annually can help you avoid costly repairs due to general deterioration.
When was the last time you had your Fireplace and Chimney cleaned?
What you can expect during a chimney cleaning?
After a friendly personable greeting a visual inspection is performed. If needed, an inspection camera may be used as well.
Clean drop cloths are appropriately placed in front of the fireplace, the grate is cleaned and removed while a large powerful vacuum (specifically designed for chimney sweeping) keeps the air clean of soot and airborne ash while your fireplace, damper and flue is swept clean.
The specialized equipment allows for the majority of chimney cleaning to be performed from inside the home from in front of the fireplace. You are guaranteed no mess!
When the job is completed time is spent with the homeowner to review the cleaning process, share inspection results and provide a friendly reminder how to safely enjoy your home fire.
Benefits of Annual Chimney Cleaning
- Peace of Mind
- Eliminate or reduce the smell of soot and burnt wood
- Removal of obstructions, i.e., animal nest
- Most importantly, eliminates the chance of a chimney fire due to creosote build-up
The National Fire Protection Agency recommends that you have your fireplace and chimney inspected annually prior to using your fireplace.
After all, the fireplace is the only place inside your home that allows you to enjoy a cozy fire to knock out the chill during those cold winter months.
