"In the days when enormous fires were lighted, and great yule-logs blazed upon hearths, it was usual to have all chimneys swept before the festive season, in case of fires." - Mairtin O' Griofa, A Celctic Christmas. 

Here at Powers Chimney & Masonry, we believe in providing full-service cleanings that include 20-point safety inspections (the inspections are free with any cleaning purchased), and we don't think that it's a tradition of the past to have your chimney swept this time of year.

In fact, for the best practices in safety and clean burning, we recommend that you have your chimney cleaned once annually. This should be done regardless of frequency of use, as hidden dangers can be lurking in any chimney.

This is the reason we provide our 20-point safety inspections free of charge when you schedule and pay for any cleaning. Our thorough, professional technicians will go over everything from the hearth to the chimney cap, and provide you with a copy of the safety inspection when they're finished, as well as explain verbally the results of their inspection. Should there be a need for any repairs or replacements, the inspection will be the path to discovering such needs, and the technician will go over this in depth with our customers.

Remember, now is the time to schedule your annual chimney cleaning & safety inspection - before the weather turns, and the holiday season is upon us!
