If you want to prevent having to replace parts of your chimney due to premature aging and deterioration or a chimney fire, then it’s a good idea to schedule an appointment with ARC Chimney Sweeps of Pascagoula, MS.
Chimney sweeping isn’t a simple process. Each technician is exposed to rigorous training. The utmost care is taken on every job to remove all hazardous substances without causing accidental harm. This is not always an easy job to master.
Chimney maintenance is crucial to keeping a fireplace and chimney safe to use. Every time a chimney is used with a vented appliance, substances build up inside. Often, this is what is called “creosote”. (A highly flammable compound made of gases that have not been burned.) This may result in a blockage or a chimney fire. Chimney fires can be very damaging. You can learn more about chimney fires here.
Each of our technicians is capable of scrubbing your chimney and all related parts in order to remove all creosote and similar dangerous substances. Overall, an annual inspection and cleaning will save you money. You won’t have to replace parts as often, or repair damage.
What does a chimney sweeping look like?
Before we arrive, we’d like it if you can do two things: move your furniture and breakables 6-8 feet from the fireplace (don’t forget pictures that may be on the wall or mantle) and avoid lighting a fire for at least 24 hrs in advance.
Once we begin, we will take every precaution to protect you and your home from debris and dirt as we work. Then we will inspect everything inside and out. Your firebox will be swept clean, your chimney liner will be more thoroughly examined, and your flue will be swept. Once that is done your smoke shelf and chamber will be scrubbed by hand. All possible remaining fire hazards, including damage will be assessed and noted. Places water could enter, too, are noted.
When all is said and done, you will be handed a nice, succinct written report detailing what has been done and what we recommend you do or keep an eye out for next.
The whole process take around an hour.
Sounds easy, right? So call today and book your appointment: (228) 205-4543.
