No matter what kind of fireplace you have in your home, it is important to stay on top of giving it the proper attention in order to make sure it continues to function effectively and safely.
Though ventless fireplaces are growing more popular due to their ease of use and less rigorous maintenance requirements, many homeowners still have chimneys which also come with their own set of efficiency and safety concerns. Whether you have a vented or ventless fireplace, the key to avoiding fires and keeping it working to its potential is regular maintenance visits.
At United Home Services, our team of expert technicians specializes in maintaining all kinds of fireplaces, from gas and wood to electric and ethanol. Our comprehensive maintenance visits include a thorough inspection and full cleaning of your fireplace as well as recommendations as to how we can help remedy any issues we may encounter along the way.
Every comprehensive fireplace maintenance visit should begin with a thorough inspection of all of its components. The exact inspection process will vary depending on which type of fireplace you have as well as whether or not it is vented through a chimney.
In preparation for the colder seasons, it is recommended that homeowners have a full inspection performed on their fireplace and chimney. This helps ensure everything is functioning as it should and there are no blockages or creosote buildup that could put your home at risk of a fire. If you are planning to use your fireplace in the upcoming months, call United Home Services today and we will make sure it is in prime condition to work efficiently and risk-free.
Following the initial inspection, our team will begin remedying any issues we may encounter one at a time. As mentioned above, the exact maintenance process varies from one fireplace to another depending on what type you have, its design, whether it is vented or not, etc.
If it has been a while since you have used your fireplace or had it properly maintained, it may require a bit of extra care and attention to get it into fighting shape. For those homeowners who have their fireplace and chimney maintained regularly, the issues are typically minor and can be resolved quickly.
Even if your fireplace and chimney themselves are in excellent condition, cleaning is the cornerstone of every maintenance visit we perform. Having your fireplace cleaned both improves efficiency and makes it considerably safer since it is far more difficult for a fire to start in a clean, properly functioning chimney.
Before you light a signal log or touch the temperature control, be sure to schedule a fireplace maintenance visit with the pros at United Home Services. We will inspect and clean every nook and cranny of your fireplace so you and your family can enjoy the safest and most efficient fireplace possible.
