With fall now upon us, the cooler nights are an enticing reason to build a fire. As winter approaches, fires will become increasingly more frequent and a clean fireplace and chimney will keep you safe.
Fall is a great time to prepare your fireplace for increased use by scheduling an annual chimney cleaning and safety inspection or chimney repair. Now is an optimal time to have your chimney and fireplace inspected and cleaned to ensure safe fires during the soon-to-be-here frigid winter months.
A professional chimney cleaning services company provides a number of benefits that will keep your fireplace and chimney operating safely and efficiently through the winter.
These services include:
- Chimney inspections: The National Fire Protection Association recommends chimneys and vents be inspected annually for “soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances.”
- Chimney sweeping: A professional chimney cleaning will remove creosote and other build-up that can lead to unpleasant odors, an inefficient draft and even deadly fires that can spread throughout your home.
- Chimney repairs: Professional chimney sweeps can detect any structural issues to your chimney and repair the issue to ensure your safety. Repairs can include chimney lining installation, masonry repair, chimney cap installation, damper repair and installation and more.
- Fireplace services: While chimneys get a lot of attention and play a key role in the safety of your home, the fireplace often is the centerpiece of your home. Professional chimney companies can help maintain the efficiency and beauty of your fireplace with cleaning and repair services.
