Call us now to book your inspection.
The CSIA Recommends Annual Inspections
If you remember booking an inspection last burning season and everything checked out fine, then you may be wondering if scheduling another is actually necessary. The simple answer is yes! The CSIA, the NFPA, and many other reputable organizations in this industry all urge homeowners to invest in yearly inspections. Most chimney companies encourage this practice, as well.
Why is this? Because many things can happen to your chimney over the course of a year! Birds may have moved in during the summer months (bringing leaves, twigs, and nesting materials with them), creosote will have likely built up, water damage and leaks could have occurred, and you may need some parts replaced, like your damper or chimney cap.
All in all, damages, blockages, and the like all put your system at risk, and they could cause some dangerous events to occur, such as gas leaks, chimney fires, and more. An inspection will reveal whether or not repairs or a sweeping is necessary. Trust us – paying for affordable maintenance now is a lot better than shelling out hundreds (sometimes thousands) for renovation work down the line!
The Importance Of Cleanings
If we see that there are dangerous levels of creosote in your flue, we will urge you to schedule a cleaning with our team. We can remove all kinds of creosote types from the light and flaky kinds to the hard and glossy glazed creosote, and we never cut corners or take shortcuts. We know how flammable creosote is and how quickly it can spread flames throughout your chimney, which is why we take pride in providing thorough, mess-free, high-quality services every time you count on us.
