Reasons To Hire A Professional Chimney Sweep

Hiring a professional is often more affordable, quicker, and more effective for some tasks. This is especially true when it comes to your flue. Although at the same time, fire safety sits at the top of the list, at Windy Chimney Services, we know there is much more involved in this seasonal chore.

When scheduling your Chicagoland cleaning time, we always make it as easy as possible.

1. Prevent Chimney Fires And Other Hazards

The buildup of creosote and soot in your flue is the cause of many home fires in the winter. A thorough professional cleaning protects your home and family from accidents that occur from buildup or maintenance issues.

2. Save Time And Money

A professional chimney sweep arrives at your home with all the tools and training needed for a speedy service. Expect them to take an hour or two for a thorough job. Instead, you might spend the whole weekend finding the right tools and watching DIY videos and still not get it done right.

3. Extend The Life Of Your Flue Liner

A clean chimney means that the liner, bricks, and moving parts can function as expected. You will need to spend less on major repairs or replacement parts.

4. Get A Safety Inspection Of Your Fireplace and Chimney

Our sweeps always thoroughly inspect your firebox, flue, damper, smoke box, and cap. You will be able to light that subsequent fire confident that you are doing it as safely as possible.

5. Maintain Your Homeowners Insurance Policy

Many home insurance companies require proof of regular maintenance for your hearth or fireplace. When you hire the pros, we will provide a maintenance certificate at the end of our visit.

6. Regular Cleanings Can Keep Your Home Clean

Your flue gets filthy over the entire heating season. Scrubbing all that creosote out is dirty work. But we always use tarps to cover your furniture, booties for our feet, and a special vacuum to catch all the dust during the cleaning process. When we are done, your home will be just as clean as when we arrived.

7. Get Ready For The Chicagoland Heating Season

Scheduling your chimney sweep earlier in the year, means that when the first cold snap hits, you are ready to light the fire without worry! It’s just one more chore you don’t need to do yourself.

8. Fast-Track Any Needed Chimney Repairs

If your chimney sweep does see something that needs fixing, we have the people and contacts to get it fixed as soon as possible. It’s like hiring a whole family of chimney maintenance gurus.
