Don’t Put Off Your Annual Chimney Sweeping or Cleaning
To get information as to why it is so important to get your chimney cleaned or swept annually, check out the CPSC Fire Safety Check List. You can quickly get an idea of what a chimney sweep really does and why!
Another great place to get a real world idea of what chimney sweeping is all about is to take a look at a video provided by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). It will show you how Ashbusters Charleston will sweep and inspect your fireplace. Also take a look at the glossary at the top of the video pane as well. Once you understand how your fireplace is constructed you will know what we are sweeping and evaluating.

Don’t Think Your Chimney Needs Sweeping
There are legitimate times that you might not think you have either burned enough wood to constitute a cleaning or you’ve moved into a new home and think the chimney should be okay because you have not used it at all or it is brand new. While that makes perfect sense to the average consumer, many chimney pros have done evaluations on brand new systems that have clearance to combustible issues that need to be fixed before being safely used.
That’s why Ashbusters Charleston conducts chimney evaluations according to guidelines set forth by the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA).
