We are often asked how often to clean my chimney with normal use. We recommend yearly and have a Big Ass Cleaning special for a limited time. More importantly, the yearly inspection determines if future problems are starting to show up.
Our special includes a chimney camera with video capabilities. We run this camera up and down the entire chimney flue and record the results. This shows us any mortar or degrading in the bricks.
The special we are running now includes a full chimney sweep, a camera inspection, a 30 point inspection with a certificate (if you are selling your house soon) and free travel expense within 50 miles of Knoxville, TN. Therefore, it is a sweet deal to jump on our special during this season.
Again, so many customers ask us how often to clean my chimney, we ask how much wood do you burn a year. If you burn a cord (or ric) a year, we recommend yearly inspections and cleaning. 3 cords or more of wood should be inspected twice a year.
Chimney sweep cost in Knoxville TN is under priced as gas is high right now. One of the main expenses in serving clients is fuel cost. Traveling to you cost. We routinely spend over $100 to fill a tank. Since we pull our heavy van to you, the expense of fuel increases monthly.
Therefore, the cost must factor in the higher fuel expenses. We don’t like to pass this on to customers so we average the cost out among everyone we serve.
We pay more for every tool and component at the supply house. The cost of transportation affects every part of the economy. Chimney caps, fireplace inserts and gas logs are going up in price every month.
Our customers say that we still provide the best chimney sweep cost and service in the area. We strive to keep the cost down for our work by being as productive as possible. Our customer app, email system and phone system are state of the art. This enables us to serve you with the lowest price possible.
How do you help lower our cost to you? Reach out to your neighbors and family that live close to you. When we are able to travel in a local area, we pass the savings on to you. Don’t forget, we offer the friends and family discount to refer new customers. Simply visit our coupon page and mention it when you set up an appointment.
Rental cabin fireplaces are at risk without a thorough chimney cleaning. The challenge with rental cabins is the timing required between guest visits. We often have to clean these with only hours to spare before the next guest checks in.
Amazing! This is a real example of a fireplace that did not get a chimney sweep even though it was recommended a year ago. Also, the fire resulted from paper products and “green wood” burning for over a year.
Most rental cabin owners do not understand how many fires are burned in cabins (even in mild temperatures). It does not take very much burning to create creosote buildup in a fireplace flue. We see rental cabins in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville Tennessee that do not get the proper chimney sweeping service. These cabins are used all winter long. Also, many visitors do not realize how to start and maintain a proper fire.
They will frequently put combustibles into the fireplace that will cause dangerous creosote build up over the years. Therefore, the cabin requires frequent cleaning of the chimney and fireplace.
A thorough chimney sweep takes less than an hour and provides peace of mind at an affordable price. Why take chances with your largest investment?
Your family’s safety depends on regular maintenance in many areas of your home. Why neglect your fireplace? This is a dirty and dangerous job. DO NOT try to do this yourself unless you acquire the proper training and tools.
Finally, If you live in around our area of east Tennessee, remember, rental cabin fireplaces are at risk without a thorough cleaning.
