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.

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.

Inhibiting Proper Ventilation

When it comes to the efficiency of your fireplace, airflow plays a key role. There must be right amount of air coming in and right amount of air escaping to ensure you get the most heat output from your fire.

Good ventilation also helps to keep harmful fumes and smoke from entering your living space. You must especially be aware of carbon monoxide, as it can cause serious issues for those living in your home. It’s important to install a detector to monitor carbon monoxide in your home to keep your family safe. We also strongly recommend having your system regularly maintained and inspected, this will ensure your fireplace is running smoothly and safely.

Threat Of Disease, Injury, Bugs, And Nasty Odors

When you have animals inside your chimney, animals can also pose a risk to those who attempt to remove them. Some animals may fight back especially raccoons, and this could lead to injuries or possible diseases, if bitten. However, if the critters pass away in your chimney, there are still some threat of illness. Removing it by yourself still can be a risk, and there is also the terrible smell associated with it.

So, How Do I Keep Them Out?

The best way to keep birds, squirrels, raccoons, and other creatures out of your chimney for good is to install a chimney cap. Chimney caps seal the opening at the top of your chimney, ensuring animals have no entry into your home to cause problems. They also provide other benefits such as preventing water entry, stopping stray sparks from landing on your roof, blocking downdrafts, and keeping out excess debris.
