Before discussing the benefits of our services, let’s cover what chimney sweeps do.
What is a Chimney Sweep?
A chimney sweep is a professional chimney technician who ensures homes are safe to use in their fireplaces. Since the 1700s, fireplace owners have known cleaning their chimneys is a risky task. Homeowners would seek the help of young boys who would climb up their chimney to clean each brick and tile in the interior. Thankfully, commercial-grade equipment has taken that job away from children. Despite people knowing for over 300 years that chimney cleaning is very important, many people neglect to do this task, or they attempt to do it themselves.
Chimney sweeps are highly trained workers who have the proper equipment to clean chimneys thoroughly. Most homeowners do not have the necessary tools to get up and inside the chimney. To reach the entire chimney a pro needs the proper tools. A professional chimney sweep will use extendable brushes, specialized cleaning agents, and even cameras to ensure your chimney is completely clean. With that being said, hiring professional chimney sweep Tallahassee, such as those at Sootaway, has a multitude of benefits.
Benefits of Hiring Professional Chimney Sweeps
There are many benefits that come with hiring a professional chimney sweep. Regular cleanings improve the efficiency of your chimney system, prevent chimney fires, odors, and smoke problems, and can identify potential hazards before they cause harm to your home. FEMA does recommend having your chimney inspected annually. Sootaway of Pensacola provides the following benefits with our services.
Protect Your Home
Sootaway takes the safety of you, your family, and your home very seriously. Through regular cleanings, inspections, and repairs, rest assured that our chimney technicians will keep your chimney working safely.
The National Fire Prevention Association recommends having your chimney cleaned at least once a year or when buildup reaches 1/8th of an inch. Any more buildup puts your chimney at risk of catching fire, which could be devastating for you and your home. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that ‘an estimated 25% of home heating fires are caused by creosote buildup in the chimney.”
Breathe Better Air
Air quality is everything to a home and those who live in it. Any blockages in your chimney will affect the quality of air in the home or building. When there is no place for smoke from the fire to escape, it will fill the home or building quickly.
As you know, the smoke is extremely harmful to breathe in. Sooty build-ups are not the only blockages that can cause smoke. Hiring a professional chimney sweep to inspect your chimney will prevent not only this issue but many others from happening. Also, they will ensure the smoke can escape your chimney properly.
