Schedule Your Chimney Maintenance Now!

Spring is the best time to invest in chimney maintenance, and the staff at SirVent Chimney & Venting Services is eager to help! Why is springtime ideal for inspections, sweepings, and repairs, when the burning season is months away? Well, we’re here to let you know the many benefits of getting it all done early. If you decide now is the best time too, please give us a call immediately to schedule an appointment.

Guarantee Early Fireplace Use

When fall and winter come, we know homeowners are eager to light up their logs and get cozy indoors. However, an inspection should always be performed before the first fire of the year. Neglecting this maintenance could lead to chimney fires, creosote build up, gas leaks, and other concerns. It can also make your fireplace less safe for those inside your home.

Unfortunately, our sweeps get really busy during the fall and winter seasons. While many homeowners try and make last-minute appointments during our busy season then are forced to wait for their inspections and sweepings. This in turn makes the family having to delay the use of their fireplace.

When you schedule now, finding the ideal appointment time for your schedule is a much more simple. Our sweeps aren’t nearly as busy, and we’ll be able to address any issues and repair work in a timely fashion. And your fireplace will be ready to use when Fall arrives. Give us a call today, so we can get started!

Get Repairs Done In Ideal Temperatures

If you’ve been waiting to work on those bigger repair projects on your fireplace and chimney, then now is the time to get started. First of all, our sweeps have plenty of time to get these repairs done. Most reconstruction work take quite some time and putting it off until fall will delay fireplace usage. There’s no doubt that a crackling fire sets the perfect aesthetic for the holidays, so avoid delays by calling us now!

Temperatures in the spring and summer are also more ideal for our products to cure. When they cure properly, they’ll provide better and longer-lasting results. When you pay for a service, you deserve the best, so guarantee yourself satisfaction by calling our sweeps now.

Why You May Need A Chimney Relining

Chimney relining is a service that greatly benefits the health and longevity of your chimney and fireplace. Your liner plays a big role in keeping the inside of your flue protected and strong and, if yours is out of alignment or broken down, you’ll find yourself facing lots of timely and costly issues with your system.

What Does A Chimney Liner Do?

A chimney liner works really hard for your chimney. First of all, it prevents fire and heat from moving past your brickwork and onto your housing materials and surrounding woodwork. These materials are obviously a lot more flammable than masonry, and you may be surprised how quickly you’ll see flames without the protection of a liner.

The masonry itself also needs a shield to protect it from the incredible heat your fireplace produces. Your mortar will break down fast if left exposed, and the resulting holes and cracks allow pathways for these hazardous toxins to enter your home. We want you to get years and years of use out of your chimney, with as few problems as possible. Have it relined, so you know you’re good to go!

Last, but not least, liners help you run your fireplace efficiently. When you light fires, you want to the best results you can get! Yet, this is only possible if proper upkeep and maintenance are applied. If your liner isn’t sized correctly, you’ll see more creosote build up, meaning more costly investments will be necessary to get things running well again.

Consider A Stainless Steel Liner

As you can see, having a properly sized and correctly installed liner is important! While there are a few different materials you can choose from in a liner (such as clay, metal, or aluminum), one of the best options you can pick is stainless steel. If you know anything about stainless steel, you know it’s built to withstand quite a bit!

At SirVent Chimney & Venting Service we offer all types of flue options, but like to point out that stainless steel is quite popular among our customers. It can be used with various fuels and it simply cannot be beat in durability. If you want something that will stand the test of time, then stainless steel is the choice for you!
