Get Your Annual Chimney Maintenance Services Done Before the Holidays

Every year, you wonder how the holiday season always seems to sneak up on you. After Halloween, the last two months of the year tend to fly by much more quickly than the other ten. It can be easy to forget to do even the more important tasks on your to-do lists for the months of November and December. This is why, if you have not had your chimney professionally swept and inspected this year, All American Chimney Service would like to remind you to schedule your appointment with us for your annual chimney maintenance services.
Our chimney sweeps have years of experience as well as certification from the leaders in the industry, including the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). You can trust us to make sure there are no hidden dangers lurking inside your chimney that could disrupt your holiday celebrations with your friends and family. We would like to tell you more about why it is so important to have your chimney professionally swept and inspected before the holidays.
Prevent Chimney Fires
One of the most important reasons why you need to have your chimney professionally swept every year is to have all of the creosote removed from the inner chimney walls. According to theCSIA, creosote is a leading cause of chimney fires. A natural compound that develops as a sticky residue inside the chimney during the combustion process, creosote is extremely flammable. The chimney sweeps at All American Chimney Service ensure that every bit of creosote is removed from your chimney so that you do not have to worry about a fire during the holidays.
Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
When All American Chimney Service sweeps your chimney, we also provide a basic Level 1 chimney inspection. This allows the technician to check for damage or any other problems that could cause your chimney and fireplace system to work unsafely. One of the things we are looking for is that nothing is blocking the flue because this could force combustion gases, including the toxic carbon monoxide, back into your home. If we find any debris in your chimney, we will remove it and make sure it can exhaust properly. If damage that we find needs to be repaired to make your chimney safe, we will provide you with written documentation and photographs of the damage as well as a written estimate.
