As the proud owner of a fireplace — or more than one fireplace — you probably know just how important regular chimney cleaning is. Having your chimney cleaned regularly can help you use your fireplace more safely and can provide overall better results when using your fireplace.
However, one thing that you might dread when it comes to chimney cleaning is the mess that can go along with it. In particular, you might worry about your flooring. Luckily, the following tips will help!
Choose a Chimney Cleaning Company That Cares
No matter how careful your chimney cleaning professional is, there is always the potential for a mess. However, a chimney cleaning pro who respects your property and belongings will try to keep the mess to a minimum. You can always count on Fiddler on the Roof Chimney Service to do the best job possible to protect your flooring and the things inside of your home while performing a chimney cleaning.
Cover It Up
Cover up the flooring in the rooms that have fireplaces in them; you can use plastic or cloth drop cloths, much like painters use to protect floors from paint drips and spills. You can use painter’s tape to hold the drop cloth in place around the corners of your floor to help prevent gaps.
Create a Path
Make sure that there is a path from your main home entrance to your fireplace. You can create one out of broken-down cardboard boxes, carpet remnants or cheap rugs. This can help protect the other flooring in your home from ashes and soot.
As you can see, it is entirely possible to protect your flooring when having your chimney cleaned. If you are looking for a good chimney cleaning company, contact us at Fiddler on the Roof Chimney Service today.
