24 Hours Before Your Appointment
The safety of both our customers and our technicians is our top priority at Ashbusters, which is why we ask that you stop using your fireplace or stove for at least 24 hours before we are set to arrive at your home for your appointment. To protect our CSIA-certified chimney professionals, your appliance needs to be completely cool when they are sweeping and inspecting your chimney. We also request that you safely remove any ashes that may be in your firebox by disposing of them into a metal container and placing the container outside on a non-combustible surface.
The Day of Your Appointment
Before Ashbusters arrives at your home that day, you will need to remove any fragile or precious items that are near your fireplace. To sweep your chimney, we must bring specialized equipment into your home, and we ask that you give us about five to six feet of clearance space around your hearth to be able to work efficiently. We do require that someone be at home for the entire sweeping process, and we invite you to watch us work. When our customers watch us sweep and inspect their chimneys, they learn so much about how to most effectively operate their fireplaces. We also pass along important chimney safety practices as we work.

Ashbusters was recommended by several of our neighbors and we met them at a remodel fair. I booked our appointment with their customer service employee, Kim, and her professionalism and friendliness was unexpected and a breath of fresh air! I used to be in very high end hotel management and appreciate a polished customer service rep. She even confirmed our appointment a day prior. Chris came out to do the chimney sweep, they were fast, clean, he explained everything and was very friendly and professional as well! as promised, I got an email with invoice, pictures they took etc. I wholeheartedly recommend this company! They are excellent all around!
