When you lead a busy life, it can be easy for you to forget important responsibilities when needed. For homeowners, one of these necessities is scheduling your annual professional chimney maintenance appointment. To ensure your chimney will work efficiently and safely throughout the fall and winter seasons, experts like the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommend annual inspections and sweepings. However, for many, summer quickly turns into fall. By this time of the year, it can be very difficult to schedule professional chimney services in a timely manner. As part of our dedicated service to the Charleston area, Ashbusters places a top priority on our customers’ safety and heating efficiency. Therefore, we offer the option of forward scheduling our services to our customers. We would like to explain this service and share why annual chimney service is so important.
What exactly is forward scheduling?
This option allows you to schedule your next annual chimney maintenance appointment for the following year with Ashbusters after we have swept and inspected your chimney. Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps will be more than happy to set up the date for your next maintenance service visit. We will also give you a reminder card that you can put on your refrigerator. We will also send you reminders of your appointment with us by phone, mail, or email. Finally, we will call 24 hours in advance to confirm with you.
Why is it so important to have my chimney serviced before lighting the first fire of the year?
Annual sweepings and inspections hellp avoid dangerous hazards such as chimney fires and carbon monoxide leaks. You can count on Ashbusters to remove every bit of creosote, soot, and other debris from your chimney. We will also look for any damage or other problems with the exterior of your chimney. When we service your chimney in the summer, we will have plenty of time to repair any issues so that you can light your first fire on the first cool evening of the fall season.
Make sure your chimney is prepared to be used safely and efficiently this fall and every fall with our forward scheduling option. Contact us today at Ashbusters to schedule your annual professional chimney maintenance service appointment.
