An annual chimney sweeping and inspection is a vital part of your home maintenance. If you have not yet had your chimney swept and inspected since the last fire-burning season, you need to before you light your holiday fires.

Your annual chimney sweeping and inspection ensures that your chimney is safe for use and ready for holiday fires. In addition, your chimney sweeping clears away dangerous and flammable creosote, as well as any blockages that may have formed within your chimney. The inspection looks for any weaknesses in your chimney or firebox that could lead to chimney failure. Why do this now? A chimney sweeping and inspection for the holiday season dramatically lowers your risk of a chimney fire or deadly carbon monoxide poisoning!

Have your fireplace ready

Don’t let your fireplace be a point of frustration this holiday season. Turning on your fireplace to find that the pilot won’t ignite?  Lighting a fire to find that smoke billows back into your living space? This can definitely dampen your holiday gatherings. Your chimney sweeping and inspection will include an inspection of your fireplace and all of its working components. Your sweep will help you make sure that your fireplace is in good repair. Also, make sure it’s ready to warm your home this holiday season.

Have a cleaner home

A dirty chimney can mean a dirtier home. A dirty chimney can fill your home with unpleasant smell. This includes smoky, rotting or decaying smells. Having your chimney cleaned can help to clear away those unpleasant smells. This way your home is fresher and cleaner as you prepare for holiday parties and holiday guests.

Enjoy a more efficient fire

A chimney sweeping also can have you enjoying more efficient fires this holiday season. A clean chimney and freshly tuned fireplace operates more efficiently. For a wood-burning fireplace, that means less tending to the fire. For a gas fireplace, that means lower energy bills.
