Get Your Chimney Swept and Inspected Now to Beat the Fall Rush

By | Tagged with: Tags: , | Comments Off on Get Your Chimney Swept and Inspected Now to Beat the Fall Rush

Magic Sweep knows that your fireplace is the last thing our customers are thinking about in the summer; however, fall will be here before you know it. National fire safety organizations like the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) strongly recommend that people have their chimneys professionally cleaned and inspected before lighting their first fire every year. Our staff wants you and your family to be safely prepared for cooler weather, and we suggest that you go ahead and schedule your annual chimney sweeping and inspection in the summer so that your fireplace will be ready for that first fire. When you put off making this appointment, you may end up waiting longer than you would like to get your chimney cleaned. Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps have their busiest schedules of the year from September to December, and it can be difficult to schedule a convenient time for your chimney maintenance services. We would like to tell you more about what you can expect from a professional chimney sweeping and inspection from Magic Sweep.

Chimney Sweeping

Magic Sweep promises that our certified chimney sweeps will leave your home as clean or even cleaner than when we came in after we sweep and inspect your chimney. Before we start cleaning your chimney, we will place drop cloths over your floor and your furniture to protect them from getting dirty. To keep all of the soot and dust from the sweeping process contained, we use a state-of-the-art vacuum system equipped with a HEPA filter. Our sweeps use special hand tools and brushes to scrub and scrape your firebox clean and then continue the cleaning by sweeping the flue from the roof with brushes and scrapers on poles to remove creosote deposits, soot, and debris from the walls of the flue. We will then clean up all of the soot and debris that fell from your chimney, clean the inside of your fireplace, and vacuum away any remaining dust and debris.

Chimney Inspection

To ensure your fireplace and chimney system works properly and safely, an annual chimney inspection is recommended by the CSIA and NFPA. Our chimney professionals at Magic Sweep are experienced in providing all three levels of chimney inspections. We follow every guideline set by the NFPA in these levels and will perform the necessary level of inspection for your particular situation. The most common level, Level 1, is a basic visual examination of your chimney and venting system to look for any damage or deterioration that could cause operational or safety problems. If you are buying or selling a home or have updated your heating appliance, you will need the more detailed Level 2 inspection. If your chimney has experienced a fire, a Level 3 inspection is necessary to guarantee the system is safe to use. You can trust our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps to give you the level of chimney inspection that you need.
