*Do not employ a professional. This is a dirty job and most individuals aren't prepared. If a professional is to be hired, you should check references. The State of Maine governs home owners insurance and the insurance provider will typically be more than delighted to provide references to some Kennebunkport chimney sweep company.
When you employ a/an Kennebunkport Chimney Sweep, you are hiring someone who has completed the required training to safely and efficiently clean your chimney. A qualified sweep will have all the appropriate safety equipment and security in place for a safe clean. Safety goggles, earplugs, masks and protective clothing are part of the mandatory equipment.
Your chimney can become an overlooked area when it comes to cleanings. Sometimes people clean the outside but neglect to clean the inside of the chimney. This is a terrible oversight. If you aren't doing your own chimney sweep, you will need to make sure that your chimney is properly serviced on a regular basis.
It should only take a few minutes to have a professional sweep in your dwelling. As long as you're doing the right thing by having your heating system inspected and cleaned every year, you should not need to worry about anything. You will see that in the long run it'll be well worth the cost you pay for the professional services. If you would like to maintain your heating bills down then you should try to get your chimney sweep in as soon as possible.
Another advantage of having a professional sweep is the protection it offers against fires. In many parts of the country, especially the more rural areas, homes will burn down during the winter months. Using a sweep will help stop this, as they will reach into the chimney prior to any other fire could break out. They are also trained to know which type of fires will be the most dangerous to attempt to put out. They will know if a fire will be likely to disperse and will work hard to stop it.

"Sweep and Clean", since this service is more commonly known, is a comprehensive cleaning program designed to provide homeowners with an extensive inspection of the home's exterior and interior.

The program also ensures that Kennebunkport property owners receive a certificate of occupancy (CO) in the autumn, a required document from the Maine Health Department that certifies the property as safe for habitation.
