Autumn is in full swing and that can only mean one thing. Winter is on its way. With that comes the holiday season, cold winds, and snow! If you haven’t already had your chimney cleaned and inspected, it’s time to get on the phone and give SirVent Chimney and Venting Service a call soon so that you can get on the schedule before it’s completely full. It’s so important to have your chimney cleaned on an annual basis, and it’s time to do that now before you want to use your chimney again. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), this will help you avoid a serious chimney fire once fire burning season starts.

Once you get your appointment on our calendar, there are some things you can do to make that appointment run smoothly. First, you want to protect your belongings. Start with your mantel. Clear everything off and put it in a safe place in another part of the house. Take a look around the room, and get any other breakable or valuable items out to avoid accidental breakage. Although we do everything we can to make sure that nothing gets broken, accidents can happen and we want to make sure that your treasured items are safe and clean. If you have furnishings in the room that are too large to move out of the room, cover them with old blankets or drop-cloths so that soot or ash doesn’t stain them.

After you’ve prepared your room, you should take a look at the actual fireplace. Are there any old ashes or half-burned wood pieces left from previous fires? You’ll want to get rid of these before our professionals come in. This will help us to get the job done more quickly.
