Thanksgiving is right around the corner. For many families, fall is such a busy time of the season. It is super easy to forget or neglect your home maintenance responsibilities. One of the most important tasks you should complete before cold weather is your annual chimney sweeping and inspection.
For the past 17 years, Champs Chimney Service has been known as the best chimney company in the Albany area. We are proud to provide superior professional chimney maintenance, repair, and installation services. We would like to tell you the importance of getting your chimney professionally swept and inspected annually.
According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), dirty chimneys cause chimney fires. This is why the CSIA and the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA), along with other national fire safety organizations recommend an annual chimney sweepiing and inspection by the professionals. When Champs Chimney Service sweeps your chimney, you can count on us to remove all creosote. As creosote is highly flammable, the CSIA has named it a leading cause of chimney fires. After we finish sweeping your chimney, you can rest easy over the holidays around the fireplace with your loved ones.
As part of our annual chimney maintenance service, Champs Chimney Service perform a level 1 chimney inspection. While we sweep your chimney, we also check to make sure that nothing is blocking the flue. Blockages in your flue can cause carbon monoxide and toxic gases to come back into your home,
However, if we do find a blockage in your chimney, we will remove the debris so that your chimney can exhaust safely and efficiently. We also check the condition of your chimney liner because toxic gases can leak into your home through cracks and gaps in the liner. If it is damaged, we will go over the relining options we have.
During our inspection, we also look at the exterior of your chimney. We also check to see if there are any damaged bricks and mortar joints, as this leads to water leaks in your home. We will also give you a written evaluation of the condition of your chimney along with a fair and honest written estimate.
