Well, for one thing, your much loved chimney is always going to be clean, right? It is particularly pleasing to look forward to that seasonal time of the year when a hot fire needs to be lighted to keep hearth and home warm. As they say, home is where the heart is. What a poor pity it is that many folks are not using their old fireplaces and chimneys as often as they would have liked or, more importantly, as often as they should.
A rather filthy and clogged chimney funnel puts a damper (if you will) on lighting a fire on a cold winter’s night. Run down chimney stacks in much need of repair stand idle. But worse is the fact that these damaged chimneys can be quite dangerous. Falling bricks and tiles and you get the picture, that is, if you are fortunate enough to have avoided the falling projectile for all this time. You do your physical and emotional health a huge deal of good when you make full use of today’s efficient and experienced chimney sweep who is on a tour of duty with a professional chimney service, preferably with a very good reputation of serving the community to boot.
Today’s chimney sweep is no longer like the old chimney sweep of Dickensian stories or other similar penny whistle tails. Yes, he will still be wearing boots and all, protective gear to be sure, but by the time he has clambered down your roof and wall, there will be no soot or falling tiles. He needs to get to the root of all problems, even going the length of using sophisticated digital camera equipment, to make sure the chimney’s interiors are also well-maintained and clean.
