It’s that time of year! The holidays are right around the corner, and it’s time to get ready! There are so many things to do before it’s time to relax and just enjoy, so now’s the time to make a list to make sure that everything gets done on time. There’s meal planning, house cleaning, cookie baking, and tree trimming. You’ll want to be buying and wrapping presents, making sure everyone gets just what he or she wants. It’s also a great time of year to reflect on what’s happened over the past year, reconnect with old friends by sending out Christmas cards or letters and get ready for a new year. One thing that would definitely put a damper on all this holiday planning would be to have an unexpected chimney fire! There’s a good way to make sure that this doesn’t happen, and that’s by calling Jiminy Chimney Masonry and Repair and scheduling a chimney scan now before the holiday season starts in earnest.
You may be wondering what a chimney scan is. When you have your chimney inspected, our employees will make sure to give the exterior of your chimney a good looking over to make sure there’s no instability or repair work that needs to be completed. But to get a really good look at your chimney, we’ll also do a chimney scan. A chimney scan involves us using a video camera snaked down your chimney, which allows a close look at the interior. We can make sure that your flue lining isn’t cracked or chipped and that the interior mortar isn’t crumbling or wearing away. We’ll be able to see any joints and make sure that they are in good repair and not allowing water leaks to seep in. A chimney scan will leave you feeling secure in the knowledge that every part of your chimney has been inspected and that any damage that needs to be repaired will get the attention it needs. If you’ve had a chimney fire or if you feel as though your chimney may have been damaged by a severe weather system, then a chimney scan is the route to take to access any damage that may have taken place and determine what types of repair work may be necessary.
Yearly Chimney Inspections
If you haven’t had your chimney inspected yet this year, or if you worry that some type of damage has occurred, then give Jiminy Chimney Masonry and Repair a call right away. It is recommended that you have an annual chimney check-up, and we are the chimney company to call to make sure that you get everything you should in an annual inspection. We can take care of your chimney scan and everything else you may need to keep your holidays happy and safe!
