Chimney Sweep Before Fall
Did you know that you should have your chimney swept before you light the first fire of the year? Many national fire safety organizations like the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and theNational Fire Protection Association (NFPA)recommend taking care of this annual chimney maintenance task before fireplace season begins to be sure your chimney and venting system works properly and correctly. To ensure your chimney has been professionally swept and inspected in time, All American Chimney Service, LLC suggests to our customers to go ahead and schedule these services in the late summer to avoid the fall rush. If you wait until fall to make an appointment with our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps, you will most likely have to wait a few weeks before you can get the appointment you want. Our chimney sweeps are typically booked solid from September through December, so we strongly recommend scheduling your annual chimney sweeping and inspection with us now to ensure your fireplace and chimney are ready to use when the weather cools down. To give you an idea of what a professional chimney sweeping from All American Chimney Service, LLC is like, we would like to tell you a bit more about what you can expect from our experienced chimney sweeps.
All American Chimney Service provides a 100% No Mess Guarantee.
When our chimney sweeps arrive at your home to clean your chimney, they will begin by covering the area surrounding your fireplace with clean drop cloths. Our goal is to leave this area of your house cleaner than when we arrived.
All American Chimney Service, LLC uses an industrial-strength vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter.
To keep soot, dust, and debris from the chimney from entering your home, our chimney sweeps will set up this vacuum cleaner over the fireplace opening.
All American Chimney Service, LLC uses special brushes to clean your chimney and remove all of the creosote deposits from the chimney walls.
Our chimney sweeps use hand brushes to clean the firebox, and then they use either brushes or rods to sweep the inside of your chimney all the way to the top of the flue. To clean the sooty smoke chamber, our chimney sweeps use a whirling porcupine brush attached to a drill. The damper of your fireplace also gets cleaned, inspected, and adjusted if needed.
All American Chimney Service, LLC inspects your chimney as it is being swept.
Using closed circuit video cameras, our chimney sweeps can visually inspect the interior of your chimney and flue. This technology allows us to have a digital document of the condition of the inside of your chimney. Our sweeps will also examine the exterior of your chimney as well, including the chimney cap and crown. We will provide you with digital photos and a condition report of your fireplace and chimney system before leaving.
