Hiring a professional to help with home inspections or repairs can be nerve wracking. If you are hiring a professional for the first time you may be wondering what you can expect and what exactly they will have to do to complete a job. There is one very simple thing you can do to ease your nerves and have peace of mind and that is simply ask. You have the right to ask the professional the questions that you have been pondering. For example, there are 10 questions you can ask a professional chimney service when you hire them to inspect your chimney. First, start out by asking them what they will have to do to clean the chimney. This way you know exactly what to expect during the cleaning process and how your home will be protected. Second question you can ask is if there is just soot in the chimney or if there is creosote as well. If there is creosote the professional will remove it. Knowing what is present in the chimney will allow you to take steps to prevent another build up after the chimney cleaning. Another question is to ask the professional if they can inspect/clean other flues in your home if you have more than one. Some other questions you can ask are, how often should I have my chimney cleaned, how much do you charge, what certifications do you have, how long have you been in business, and will you have to go on the roof? Many of these questions can be answered when a professional arrives at your scheduled appointment or by clicking through the company website. Generally a professionals website will have the story of how the company first started as well as list the company affiliations as we have on our website.
