The holidays are an especially hectic time of the year. Between visiting family and friends, gift shopping, and preparing the traditional festive meals, one can lose track of time fairly easily. As everybody struggles to stay afloat in the ocean of responsibilities, one key task often overlooked is an annual chimney sweeping and inspection. Sweep your chimney before the busy holiday season to ensure your family and home is safe!
Reputable organizations such as the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommend annual chimney sweepings and inspections to keep your home and family safe. When you schedule a chimney sweeping with SirVent, you are receiving the highest level of service because our professional staff uses top of the line technology to thoroughly clean and inspect your chimney.
Our process starts by laying down tarps and cloths to ensure your home remains clean throughout the process. Next, we use tools such as industrial vacuums and cameras to clean and inspect the chimney to spot any blockages, deterioration, and other damage. After all work is concluded, we provide customers with a detailed report of any discoveries and provide recommendations on any necessary future repairs. Let our technicians clear out your chimney before the upcoming holiday season!
Benefits of a Holiday Chimney Sweeping
Our professionally trained and certified technicians want you to feel safe as you relax by the fire this upcoming holiday season. An inspection before the holidays provide homeowners with myriad of benefits, such as:
Decreased Risk of Fire – Annual chimney sweepings and inspections significantly decrease the risk of a chimney fire. Throughout the course of the year, creosote builds up in your chimney. Creosote is a hazardous and extremely flammable byproduct of fire and can build up and harden along the flue. During a sweeping, our technicians remove and clear your flue of any hazardous materials to allow smoke to easily exit your home while decreasing your risk of fire.
Decreased Exposure to Carbon Monoxide – Carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, and colorless toxic gas. Exposure causes symptoms such as dizziness, weakness, nausea, and more. Fire produces a small amount of carbon monoxide, and your chimney flue must be cleared to allow it to freely exit your home. Restricted circulation allows it to potentially enter your home and endanger your family. Luckily, our technicians sweep your chimney to ensure that it can safely and freely leave your home.
Increased Efficiency – Annual chimney sweepings ensure that your fireplace and chimney system are operating at maximum efficiency. After a sweeping, your chimney will be cleared of any debris and blockages. This annual sweeping is also great for the long term health of your system, as it allows us to identify and remedy any problems that are not currently an issue but could become one in the future.
