A chimney inspection is
very detailed, checking
inside the fireplace
firebox, up the chimney
flue and on the roof.
 
The chimney sweep is
looking at many chimney
parts and for many
different symptoms of
chimney problems.  But,
in general the chimney
sweep will check for five
basic things:
1.  Is there soot built up or third stage creosote
in the chimney flue that needs to be removed by a chimney sweep to
prevent a chimney fire?*
2.  Is the chimney heat tight?  Are there any signs of wear in the chimney
flue, in the chimney chamber, or in the fireplace firebox that heat can
escape through causing a house fire?*
3.  Is the chimney air tight? Are there any signs of wear in the chimney
flue, in the chimney chamber or in the chimney chamber  that smoke and
poisonous gases like carbon monoxide can escape through into your home
causing a deadly situation for you and your family.*
4.  Is the chimney water tight? Is there any thing on the chimney where
wear or rust is letting water into your home that is causing damage?*  
5. Is your chimney energy efficient?  Is your chimney damper rusted,
broken or missing and allowing hundreds of dollars in air conditioning
and/or heating escape out of your chimney?*

Having a chimney sweep come out to check your chimney every year for
these five conditions and more is a good home maintenance plan.
 A
chimney sweep should service your chimney once a year, or more depending on
use.  Ash Away Chimney Sweeps always check to see if you need a chimney
sweep before they put a brush in your chimney.  If you don't need a chimney
sweep, you will not be charged for a chimney sweep, only for the chimney
inspection.  A chimney sweep can explain to you how your chimney works and
what warning signs you should be looking for.  A good chimney sweep knows
that you are not a chimney expert and a good chimney sweep is happy to patiently
explain how all of the chimney parts work together.  If a chimney sweep does
find anything wrong with your chimney the chimney sweep can recommend
repairs and should also be able to explain to you what those repairs are and why
they are needed.  A good chimney sweep will not push you into repairs you do
not understand.  Ash Away Chimney Sweeps servicing Jacksonville, FL will
check for these five points and more during your chimney inspection and the
chimney sweep will clean the chimney without making a mess assuring you
another safe year of burning in your fireplace.  Schedule your chimney sweep
appointment today.*

A chimney sweep is affordable maintenance on your home.  There's no reason to forget about your chimney, even in
Jacksonville, FL where we don't use our fireplaces and chimneys as often as colder states.  A chimney needs to be cleaned by a
chimney sweep at least once a year, more depending on use.  Even if you don't use your chimney you should get a chimney inspection
every other year.  And if you don't use your chimney often, you would be surprised how a few fires in the fireplace can add up.  Most
people don't realize how many times they have used their chimney between chimney cleanings.  All those "let's have a fire in the
fireplace just this once" adds up.  Also chimney parts up top can rust over time causing damage to your home or unsafe chimney
burning conditions.  Rusty or broken chimney dampers can allow expensive air conditioning and heat to leak out of your home, and in
Jacksonville, FL we worry a lot about lowering our air conditioning bill.  It is much more affordable to repair your chimney damper than
to pay those expensive utility bills every month.   A maintained chimney adds comfort, charm and lots of resale value to your home -
home buyers love a wood burning fireplace.  A chimney is either a forgotten hole in your roof or a well maintained asset to your home.  
Don't  just hope,
know your chimney is maintained, safe and not costing you extra money.  Call today for your affordable yearly chimney
inspection from a professional chimney sweep.*
Not maintaining your chimney is much more costly than an affordable chimney sweep.  Don't let tough
economic times here in Jacksonville, FL tempt you to put off your yearly chimney cleaning and chimney inspection by a chimney

conditioning blow money right out of your house through your chimney!  Cracks in the chimney flue allow poisonous gases like carbon
monoxide to seep from smoke in your chimney into your home.  Dangerous soot and creosote build up in your chimney puts your
family and home at risk of fire and the unspeakable.  The most affordable way to handle these conditions is to make sure they don't
happen in the first place with an affordable chimney sweep.  Have your chimney cleaned and inspected by a chimney sweep today.  Of
