Keep Your Chimney Clean for Santa

When you own a home with a chimney, you have a huge maintenance responsibility this time of year. Making sure that your chimney is ready for Santa Claus is important, so you need to find professionals you can trust to do the job properly. Since 1986, Ace Chimney Sweeps has been preparing the chimneys in the Elkton, MD area for Santa’s arrival, and our Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified chimney sweeps have the training and experience that is required to do the best possible maintenance services to keep your chimney and fireplace system working at its most efficient levels all winter long. We would like to tell you more about why you need to have your chimney professionally swept and inspected every year.

PREVENT HAZARDOUS SITUATIONSKeep Chimney Clean For Santa - Elkton MD - Ace Chimney Sweeps

According to the CSIA , creosote is a leading cause of chimney fires. This compound develops naturally during the combustion process of burning wood, and it can accumulate into large deposits that stick to the inner walls of your chimney. These deposits create dangerous fire hazards because creosote is so highly flammable. In order to avoid the risk of a chimney fire, you should have your chimney professionally swept at least once a year. You can trust Ace Chimney Sweeps to take care of this important task. Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps will make sure every bit of creosote has been removed from your chimney so that you will not have to worry about the possibility of a chimney fire over the holidays.

AVOID TOXIC GAS LEAKS

When Ace Chimney Sweeps performs an annual chimney maintenance service, we include a basic Level 1 chimney inspection. During this inspection, our professional chimney technicians will take a look at the inside and the outside of the chimney to see if there is any damage or another issue that could cause problems. One of the most important things we do when inspecting a chimney is to check for flue blockages. If debris is blocking your flue, toxic combustion gases like carbon monoxide can be forced back into your home. Also known as the silent killer, carbon monoxide is odorless and tasteless, which is why it is so important to have your chimney professionally inspected every year. We also recommend installing carbon monoxide detector alarms throughout your home to protect your family from breathing this poisonous gas if it were to leak into your home.
