Important Benefits of Chimney Sweeping - Elkton MD - Ace Chimney

Avoid the waiting list.

To keep your chimney working safely and efficiently, the CSIA recommends having it professionally cleaned and inspected annually. Since many homeowners put this off until the fall, Ace Chimney Sweeps has a full calendar from September through the end of the year. This may mean that you will have to wait for weeks to be able to have your chimney maintained. Scheduling this service in the spring ensures that you will have no problems getting the appointment at the most convenient time for you.

Keep your home smelling sweet all summer long.

When we perform your annual chimney maintenance services, we will remove any creosote that has accumulated . This natural compound is highly flammable and has a very strong, unpleasant odor which worsens during the heat of summer. You can trust our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps to ensure a safe and clean chimney.

Protect your chimney from water and animal invasions.

During the inspection, we will look for any debris blocking the flue or any damage that could cause your chimney to be unsafe. We will also check for sufficient protection from water leaks by examining the condition of your chimney cap. The chimney caps also prevent birds, squirrels, raccoons, and other wild animals from getting into the chimney. If your cap is damaged or missing, we can recommend a new one to install for your safety.

The best thing about an early chimney sweeping is being ready to light the fire when cooler weather returns. Contact us today at Ace Chimney Sweeps to schedule your annual professional chimney maintenance appointment with our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps.
