Although it may seem like cooler weather is far away, fall is just around the corner! If you have kids, this time of year can be very hectic. Your family will be busy keeping up with the many events that are involved with school – and that’s a lot. During this time, it can be easy to forget certain things that you need to do. Before you know it, the holidays will be here, whether you are ready for them or not.

Everyone knows the last thing we want to deal with on Thanksgiving is a chimney fire! So, what’s one of the most important things you need to do before the holidays? Have your chimney professionally swept and inspected to make sure it’s safe for the coming burn-season! Since 1978, Chim Cheree, The Chimney Specialists have been sweeping and inspecting chimneys in the Upstate South Carolina area. That’s why we recommend that you schedule this important maintenance appointment now. Now, we would like to tell you why, as well as what you can expect from our service visit.

Why should I make my fall chimney maintenance appointment today?

The busiest time of the year for Chim Cheree, The Chimney Specialists is from September to December. We work long hours every day, making sure the chimneys in our area are safe and efficient. If you wait until after Labor Day to schedule this appointment, you may have a hard time getting the most convenient date for you! The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends that homeowners have their chimneys professionally swept and inspected before lighting the first fire of the season. Therefore, you may not be able to use your fireplace safely as soon as you would like. Making this appointment now guarantees that your fireplace is ready to go on the first cool night of fall.

What can I expect from a professional chimney sweeping and inspection from Chim Cheree, The Chimney Specialists?

When we arrive to your home on the date of your appointment, our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps begin by laying down drop cloths on the floor in front of your fireplace. We also set up a high-powered vacuum that will collect dust from the chimney. After protecting your home from getting dirty, we will sweep your chimney from top to bottom. Additionally, making sure we remove every bit of creosote to reduce the risk of a chimney fire!

What happens after we have swept the chimney? We inspect its interior and exterior to look for any blockages or damage that could cause your fireplace to be unsafe to use. Once we are finished, we will provide you with a written description of the condition of your chimney. If problems are found, we will give you photos of the damage, as well as a written estimate of the repairs needed to make your chimney safe again.

Beat the fall rush! Contact us at Chim Cheree The Chimney Specialists today to schedule your appointment for your annual professional chimney sweeping and inspection.
