We Provide Thorough Chimney & Fireplace Sweeping Services For Greater Safety & Efficiency
Here at West Texas Chimney & Venting Solutions, we’re committed to providing the best chimney maintenance and prevention services possible. We know that proper care goes a long way toward keeping chimney systems operating as safely and as efficiently as they were designed to – and since the safety and comfort of our customers is of the utmost importance, we believe that any services that work to protect our customers should be a priority. That’s why we proudly offer thorough chimney sweepings of all chimney types.
Chimney sweeping services are designed to remove any flammable buildup (like creosote – a byproduct of combustion) that may have settled along the flue walls and down in the smoke chamber and firebox. A sweeping will also remove any leaves, twigs, or other debris that could potentially spark a chimney fire or block the venting system.
State-Of-The-Art Equipment For Expert Results
Our Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified chimney sweeps use state-of-the-art equipment to inspect and sweep 1st- and 2nd-story chimneys of all kinds, including wood, gas, and oil-burning chimneys. While sweeping your system, we ensure that it’s in working order and that everything is functioning properly. We look for any problems that could prevent peak performance, and recommend repairs and services that are needed in order for your system to burn cleaner and safer.
When A Sweeping Is Necessary
It’s hard to know just when your chimney needs sweeping without getting a good look inside the flue. That’s why the CSIA and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommend that every homeowner have their chimney professionally inspected annually. If you’re keeping up with annual inspections, your chimney professional should be able to let you know when you’re due for a sweeping. Sweeping frequency will largely depend on the amount of use your fireplace or stove see, whether or not the chimney is properly fitted with a cap, and how efficient the system is.
How To Prepare For A Chimney Sweeping
To prepare for a chimney sweeping, you’ll want to clear about a five-foot space in front of your fireplace or stove and remove any valuables from the area. Doing so will help ensure that your valuables remain safe throughout our service and will provide our technicians with sufficient space to set up their sweeping equipment. You’ll also want to remove any ash that you can from the fireplace or stove.
And don’t forget – in order to get right to work sweeping your system, our technicians need to be working with a completely cooled unit. For their safety, please refrain from using your fireplace or stove for a full 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time.
How We Ensure Mess-Free, Stress-Free Sweepings
You’re calling us to make your home cleaner and safer – not a dirty hazard – and we get that. That’s why we take great care to protect your home and keep any ash, dust, or debris contained throughout our sweeping service. Our technicians place drop clothes throughout the home and wear foot protection to ensure mess-free service, each and every time. We work hard to get the job done quickly and thoroughly so you can get back to enjoying your hearth and home promptly.
