Plus, with such a busy schedule for your family nowadays, the holidays will be here before you know it. Your fireplace is a popular gathering spot. So, you definitely want to be sure your family, friends, and holiday guests will be safe from any dangerous hazards that may be lurking within your chimney.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM OUR SERVICES
All Seasons Chimney will arrive to your home to perform your annual professional chimney maintenance services. We will start by making sure we keep your house mess free! This is done by laying down tarps and drop cloths on the floor in front of your fireplace and over nearby furniture. Then we will begin sweeping your chimney from the top to the bottom. We use specialized tools to make sure that every bit of creosote is removed from the interior walls of your chimney, to eliminate the risk for chimney fires.
After your chimney has been swept, we then take a close look at the exterior and interior of your chimney in our inspection service. We will check to make sure no debris is blocking your chimney. This ensures you will not have carbon monoxide forced back into your home. We will also examine your liner and other important components of your chimney to make sure there is no damage present. If we do find any issues, we will provide you with photos of the damage. Also, we prepare a written estimate of the repairs that are necessary to be able to use your chimney safely.
Beat the fall rush. Contact us today at All Seasons Chimney to schedule your annual professional chimney maintenance services today. Make sure your fireplace will be ready on the day of the first Fall chill!
