As one of the largest cities in the nation, Chicago is home to many houses that feature a chimney and fireplace. When the winter hits, you’ll want to be able to use your fireplace to keep you comfortable. Early Times provides the best Chicago chimney sweeping service to help ensure your fireplace is safe and efficient.
Chimney sweeping is a very important task that needs to be done if you want the most out of your fireplace. The lining of your chimney can become covered in soot over time and creates a higher risk for chimney fires.
As a certified chimney sweep company, Early Times knows exactly how to get your chimney into proper working condition.
The obvious benefit of a chimney cleaning is that it makes your fireplace safer. You can never be too safe when it comes to burning a fire in your home so if you can’t remember the last time you got your chimney swept, we highly recommend getting one before using your fireplace.
When you choose Early Times for your chimney sweeping in Chicago, you’ll have the assurance of knowing that your chimney will be cleaned thoroughly and we’ll check for any problems that might be hiding in your chimney.
Another benefit of chimney sweeping is that your fireplace will burn more efficiently. Without any built up soot or creosote, your fireplace will be able to burn cleaner and smoke will have a clear path out of your chimney without any blockages.
While there is no exact time frame of when you should get your chimney swept, there are a few factors that can help you decide when the time is right.
The biggest factor to take into consideration when you’re deciding to get a chimney sweeping is how often you use your fireplace. If you use your fireplace frequently, you’ll need to get your chimney swept more so than if you only use it a few times per year.
One of the guidelines that the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) has set is that you should get your chimney swept if it has 1/8″ of soot built up on the liner. If you aren’t comfortable measuring the soot build-up yourself, we highly recommend a chimney inspection.
Early Times’ chimney inspectors have many years of experience and know exactly when a chimney should get cleaned or not. Chimney inspections should be done at least once per year before you start using your fireplace.
