With Christmas coming up, homeowners everywhere are getting busier and busier. Between buying gifts, decorating, planning family events, and more, things can get hectic in a hurry! But who has busiest job of all? Why, Old Saint Nick, of course! All that flying around on Christmas Eve is a big task to take on, so why not make sure your chimney is clean and ready for Santa’s arrival? Call us in for a sweeping today!
Keeping Your Home Safer
While we’re sure Mr. Claus will appreciate a clean chimney, we know he won’t be the only one grateful for it. Your family will thank you, too! Clean chimneys lead to more efficiency and increased safety all around. There’s no reason not to book a time slot with us as soon as you can. Learn more below!
First things first, sweeping your chimney will ensure all creosote is removed. Creosote is one of the most harmful substances your chimney can come across and, when too much of it accumulates, a chimney fire could easily ignite. Chimney fires negatively impact the integrity of your entire structure, weakening your brickwork and melting your mortar. All of that intense heat and wear and tear causes cracks, holes, and other openings to form, leaving your home vulnerable to stray flames and smoke.
Obviously, no one wants anything fire-related leaking into their home. Flames could easily catch adjacent woodwork on fire and gases will make loved ones sick in a hurry. Call us in, so that all of your creosote gets removed before the holidays really take off. Creosote is no match for our expertise!
Tackling Any Clogs
Another necessary task in sweeping a chimney is clearing away any obstructions. Proper airflow is essential for building and maintaining efficient fires. Poor circulation leads to less heat, smoke backing up into your home, and exposure to harmful fumes and toxins. A cozy get-together indoors will go bad in a jiffy, and you’ll be left with a smelly living room for the rest of the holiday season.
Let us help you out by removing any dirt or debris that may be jamming things up. It’s all too common for woodland creatures to bring in twigs, leaves, and nesting materials, all of which quickly plug up the pathways necessary for good ventilation. We’ll clear things up, so you can rest easy and enjoy the cold nights ahead to the fullest!
Also, be sure to ask us about our chimney caps. Whether you’re missing a cap, need your current one repaired, or are looking for a replacement one, we have got you covered. Chimney caps are essential for keeping out water, and they make all the difference when it comes to keeping excess debris out of your flue. We will set you up right, so you won’t have blockages again anytime soon!
If you’re ready to start enjoying your holiday festivities, let our CSIA certified staff ensure that your fireplace is ready to go. Give us a call today!
