Professional Chimney Inspections and Sweepings Help Prevent Chimney Fires, Carbon Monoxide Leaks, and Home Fires

At Ashbusters, our aim is to keep your family safe and secure by providing chimney sweepings and inspections. Not only does a clean chimney keep your home safe, it can even help you save money on bills! An efficient appliance will boost your home’s heat, without the extra bills. 

Considering the risks of avoiding a chimney inspection, and identifying the benefits that scheduling one will bring, makes calling Ashbusters an easy choice. 


The Problem with Avoidance & The Benefits of Scheduling

If you avoid your annual chimney sweeping like the plague, you are welcoming danger into your home. This includes:

  • Chimney Fires
  • Expensive Repairs from Misuse of an Ineffificient System
  • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
  • Creosote Buildup
  • Rusty or Broken Parts
  • Smoke Backups Into Your Home
  • Water Leaks

Meanwhile, if you schedule your inspections and sweepings, you ensure:

  • a home safe from carbon monoxide leaks
  • a fireplace that works efficiently to heat the home
  • early warning of any repairs, so you can take care of them promptly
  • ease of mind knowing that your family is safe when turning the fireplace on.

Avoiding annual work is not worth the danger it brings, but the benefits are!

Still Think It’s Not Worth It?

We understand that chimney safety is not at the top of everyones to-do list, but it should be. The cost of a chimney sweeping or inspection is much less costly than a house fire, dealing with a carbon monoxide leak, or waiting until a major repair is noticable.

Consider that most chimney fires go undetected by homeowners. A chimney fire can leave your chimney vulnerable to a cracked liner – which then allows the heat to escape the chimney into nearby walls.

Although paying for a certified sweep to do the job may seem unneccessary, keep in mind that an amateur may miss important problems, cause more damages that you need to pay for down the line, or will leave your home a mess! With 100% satisfaction guarenteed, Ashubsters is the obvious choice. 

Chris did a fantastic job! He showed up on-time, was very clean and professional and very informative. He took the time to make sure I understood the issues with my chimney and all possible remedies. I will definitely use Ashbusters again for my fireplace and chimney maintenance.

We had Ashbusters come out to inspect and clean our chimney/fireplace, and thank God we did! The information from the inspection we received by Chris revealed a problem we were originally unaware of. I am so grateful that we will be getting this fixed and know 100% that our chimney/fireplace will be safe to use. We highly recommend Ashbusters, especially Chris. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and all around excellent customer service. 5 stars*****

Are you representing the home? We get a lot of real-estate managers, property managers and personal assistants that call for homeowners. Knowing who owns the home helps us to accurately save files and information relating to your services.

Have you used us for your appliance before? If so, we have all your past services on file and it speeds up the scheduling process.

Where is your home located? This ensures that you are in our service area.

What kind of appliance are you wanting to be serviced? (wood-burning fireplace, wood-burning stove, gas logs, etc)

How many stories is your home? What is the exterior of your chimney made out of? What do you have on your roof? (metal shingles, terra cotta, etc)

*If you don’t know the answers to these questions, no worries! Our team can help you.
