Why You Should Get Your Chimney Swept in Bolingbrook

If you’ve never had your chimney swept, you’re probably wondering why it’s such a big deal. It’s a huge deal that can help keep your home and family safe. Allow us to explain.

When you use your fireplace, soot lines the walls of your chimney. The more often you use your fireplace, the more soot that’s in your chimney. Since soot is highly flammable, you’re at risk of a chimney fire if it’s not cleaned.

Plus, soot can create blockages in your chimney which will prevent smoke from exiting your home. Without having anywhere else to go, the smoke will billow back into your home. This is unsafe because you shouldn’t be breathing it in.

That’s where Early Times comes into play. Our goal is to make sure your chimney is cleaned by well trained and experienced chimney sweeps who will help keep your home safe. That’s why so many Bolingbrook homeowners trust us.

We even take our chimney cleaning to the next level. Not only do we sweep it, but we’ll perform a chimney inspection to make sure there are no underlying problems. With all the smoke and harsh weather it has to face, there could be a problem you’re unaware of that you need to catch before it gets worse.

Is There a Good Time for a Chimney Sweep?

There’s isn’t any particular time frame that your chimney needs to be swept. The only thing that determines the frequency of the cleaning is how often you use your fireplace. The more you use it, the more soot that’s in your chimney.

That being said, we do recommend a yearly cleaning so we can inspect the chimney to make sure there are no other problems. If you do use your fireplace frequently, you may want to consider cleaning it more often.

How do you know that you’re using your fireplace more often than the average homeowner? How much soot is too much? The key amount is 1/8″. If you have 1/8″ of soot, you’re at risk of a chimney fire. If you don’t know or aren’t comfortable checking the amount of soot in your chimney, hire a professional to perform an inspection.

Chimney inspections are one of our specialties. We’ll get into your chimney and check the amount of soot lining the walls. We’ll also make sure there are no problems with any of the other parts or the exterior. Like we said, our goal is to make your Bolingbrook home safer and cleaner.

Find a Trustworthy Chimney Company

Many companies act as if they’re experts. They’ll tell you just about anything to get your business. The problem is that they don’t have experience or skills to back up their claims. They’re just another fly-by-night company looking to make a buck.

We Know Chimneys: Other Chimney Services

  • Chimney liners – a stainless steel or aluminum liner that helps protect your chimney
  • Chase covers – found on top of your prefabricated chimney and is used to shield it from precipitation
  • Chimney tuckpointing – the act of repairing brick and mortar joints

  • Chimney repair – we can handle any size repair, no matter how big or small
  • Chimney waterproofing – helps stop moisture problems caused by heavy rain and snow

We’re Also Fireplace Experts

Since fireplaces and chimneys go hand in hand, it only made sense that we help homeowners with both. We have a wide array of fireplace products and services which you can see below:

  • Gas log fireplaces – a low-maintenance alternative to a wood burning fireplace
  • Ventless fireplace –  there’s no vent or chimney attached to this fireplace
  • Dampers – stop drafts from coming down your chimney and into your home
  • Glass doors – an elegant addition to your fireplace that helps improve its energy efficiency and safety
  • Fireplace inserts – can be inserted into a wall or existing masonry fireplace

What Else Does Early Times Offer?

An awning can be a big part of your home. Not only do they look great but they provide shade to your deck, patio or porch. SunSetter retractable awnings from Early Times are a great addition to your home. When you’re not using them, they retract back into your home to keep them safe from the elements.

Window and doors awnings are another awesome investment for your home. They add a personal flair and a unique look that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll definitely be improving your home’s curb appeal with these awning options.

Bolingbrook winters are harsh and your only goal is to keep your home warm. However, all of your heat keeps leaving through your attic. Early Times can help prevent that with our blown-in attic insulation. It keeps the heat in your home so you’re more comfortable and save money on your energy bills.

Dryer vents often go uncleaned and unnoticed. Homeowners feel that if they clean their lint trap, that’s all they need to do. However, leaving your dryer vent unattended to can lead to dryer fires. Our dryer vent cleaning service will make sure that you never have to endure those problems.

Your roof vents are prone to have birds and other animals get stuck in them. This hurts your home’s air circulation and will end up costing you a lot of money to get them out. Our roof vent covers are designed to prevent any animals from getting into them without hurting your home energy efficiency.
