Schedule Your Chimney and Fireplace Inspection or Sweeping Today!
Keeping up with routine chimney sweepings and cleanings is one of the best ways to protect your home against fire and keep your chimney in great condition, season after season. The team here at Lou Curley’s Chimney Service knows just how important it is that chimneys be cleaned regularly and well, which is why, when you call on us to do the job, you get a better, more thorough sweeping.
- A better sweeping — When we clean masonry fireplaces, we use rotary brushes that attach to a drill and spin-clean the interior of the chimney. This provides a much more effective cleaning and removes more soot and creosote than a simple wire brush would.
- A better inspection — We perform video scans of the entire interior of the flue. Should we find defects or damage, we’ll show you pictures of our findings so you don’t have to just take our word for it. We also check your heating system flue so that it’s one less thing to worry about. Has anyone ever measured your firebox and chimney proportions? This is also something we do whenever possible since the proper proportions mean a safer and more efficient system.
- A better technician — We’re the only chimney company in Pennsylvania to hold all of the certifications from the CSIA, F.I.R.E., and the NFI, and we’re also the only CSIA Master Chimney Sweep in PA, so when we’re in your home, you can be confident you’re in good hands.
One of the most integrity driven companies I’ve ever dealt with. They didn’t just come to a job, they explained in detail what they were doing and why. They also explained options for future care without pressuring a sale or trying to up sale anything. I was impressed with their professional, but approachable demeanor during the process. I would recommend them and use their service again, no questions asked.
When Should You Schedule Your Chimney Cleaning?
Now that you know you should schedule an inspection every year so you’ll know when it’s time for a sweeping and you know what to look for in a chimney sweep, what time of year is best for scheduling these services? While any time of year will do, the best time to schedule a chimney inspection and sweeping is in the spring, right after the heating season ends.
Soot and creosote are corrosive and can lead to unpleasant smells and chimney damage, so it’s best to get both out of your chimney as quickly as possible. Sweeping or cleaning your chimney right after the burning season is similar to brushing your teeth right after eating — it’s what’s recommended by professionals!
