Your chimney is one of the most important features of your property. It not only helps to keep your family warm and comfortable, but is also vital in keeping them safe. How the chimney really works is to vent the fireplace to keep it burning efficiently and safely. By forward scheduling your chimney appointments you are taking measures to keep your chimney working properly, and preventing problems down the road.
Forward Scheduling Chimney Sweeps
The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends regular cleanings, or sweepings, completed by a professional. By scheduling these chimney sweepings in advance you ensure that they aren’t forgotten in the hustle and bustle of summer vacations, holiday plans, etc.
Each and every chimney sweep is important to remove creosote buildup before it becomes a flammable blockage in your chimney flue. You don’t have to worry about creosote buildup in your chimney if you have it regularly cleaned by a certified professional. When a Brickliners chimney sweep cleans a chimney, they remove most of the soot and creosote so it doesn’t become a hazard. Safety is our #1 priority.
Forward Scheduling Chimney Inspections
The Chimney Safety Institute of America also recommends that homeowners schedule chimney inspections annually. The best idea is to schedule these inspections in the fall in order to know your chimney is ready for burn season. If you schedule your next inspection after each one, they are scheduled a year in advance. This is perfect for a level 1 inspection, which should be scheduled annually if no changes were made to the chimney system. Also, by scheduling in advance if you find you need to schedule a level 2 inspection, you can simply call and let your chimney sweep company know before the appointment.
Forward Scheduling with a Professional
When your safety is at stake, its best to call on a professional. In the chimney and fireplace industry that means a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® (CCS). By scheduling your appointments in advance with a Certified Chimney Sweep you are choosing the best for your family and property. You don’t want to find yourself weeks before burn season unable to get an appointment with the company you know and trust. Schedule in advance so that you aren’t tempted to cut corners and call someone less certified to do an important job.
