Hosting Parties during the Holidays

During the holiday season, I adore hosting parties at my home. I always enjoy spending time with close friends and family members in a relaxed atmosphere. Are you already busily planning upcoming events at your home? Consider making your house look amazing when visitors arrive by hiring a professional cleaning service. A cleaning service can complete tedious chores such as vacuuming your carpets, mopping your hardwood floors, cleaning your oven, and dusting your furniture. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of hiring a cleaning service before your guests are expected to arrive. Your home can be a spotless party paradise.

Why Your Place Of Business Needs Professional Chimney Cleaning


You may have already employed a cleaning service to maintain the premises and HVAC systems, but have you considered taking care of your chimney? There are many benefits of having commercial chimney cleaning — take a look.

Save Money on Your Energy Bills

Brick-and-mortar shops pay for the upkeep of the building and the utilities. If your business uses a fireplace and chimney to keep the place warm, you need to have periodic cleanings so that you don't have a buildup of soot and creosote, a distilled oil that can preserve wood. These by-products can cause blockages in your chimney, firebox assembly, and smoke chamber assembly, thus reducing the efficiency of the fireplace. By keeping the chimney cleaned, the fireplace will work more efficiently, and your energy bills won't be as high.

Avoid Professional Negligence

Unclean chimneys can irritate the lungs of your clients and customers. You don't want your place of business to be a health hazard since you could be sued for negligence. Besides health issues, unclean chimneys increase the risk of fire hazards. Your chimney should be up to code for both inspections and cleanings. During a cleaning, professionals can spot masonry repairs and other issues that could potentially cause a fire to spread. Again, they can remove soot and creosote, which not only affects efficiency, but makes it easier for a fire to spread.

Get Necessary Recommendations From Professionals

Chimney cleaners can make recommendations that could improve efficiency or protect your chimney from expensive repairs. For instance, you may want to have a chimney cap installed. A chimney cap is a great accessory since it can prevent small rodents from entering your business. Chimney caps can also protect your business's roof from embers and keep moisture from damaging any components.

Besides recommending accessories, the cleaners can also help you choose the right firewood for your specific fireplace. For instance, some firewood has more moisture than others, making it harder to burn. Some firewood produces more creosote, so the professionals can recommend wood that will have by-products which are easier to clean.

A deep cleaning should usually be done once a year, but if you use your fireplace a lot, then you may need more. While every cleaning service differs, an inspection and sweep will usually cost between $100 and $250. Make sure you shop around to find a professional that you are comfortable with and one that has liability insurance/certification.
