Summer is in full swing here in the Nashville area, which is infamous for its hot and humid weather. Therefore, your chimney is likely to be the last thing on your mind right now. However, Ashbusters would like to remind you to go ahead and schedule your annual professional chimney maintenance services. We have swept and inspected chimneys for over three decades to be sure they work safely and efficiently. Our staff recommends taking care of chimney needs sooner rather than later. We would also like to share with you what you can expect from our superior chimney maintenance services.
Why should I make my chimney maintenance service appointment in the summer?
To ensure that your chimney and fireplace system will function efficiently without any hazards present, national fire safety organizations like The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommend professional chimney sweepings and inspections before the fall. Because of how busy we are in the fall each year, Ashbusters strongly recommends making this important chimney maintenance service appointment in the spring or summer. You will have a much easier time scheduling our visit on the date and time that is most convenient for you, since you will need to be present at the time of service. Another benefit is not having to worry about having to wait for weeks into the fall season to have your chimney serviced.
What can I expect from a chimney sweeping and inspection appointment with Ashbusters?
When we arrive at your home, we guarantee our sweeps will not leave behind a mess. We set up a high-speed vacuum with a triple layer HEPA filter to collect dust and soot. In addition, we lay down tarps around your fireplace area. We use specialized tools like rotating brushes on extended rods to sweep from the firebox to the top of the chimney. We will remove every bit of creosote to prevent chimney fire hazards and unpleasant odors. In addition, we will make sure that nothing is blocking the flue. Blockages could lead to toxic gases like carbon monoxide leaking into your home. Next, we perform a visual check of your exterior chimney to look for damaged bricks and mortar joints. If we do find any problems, we will document it with video or digital photos that will be provided to you, along with a written estimate of the necessary repair work. You will also receive a written evaluation of your chimney system.
Did we mention that our chimney maintenance services come with a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee? Contact us today at Ashbusters to schedule your annual professional chimney sweeping and inspection and be prepared for fireplace season.
