Well, you don’t say is what some folks would be saying. But have you ever seen them clean their own chimneys? More than likely, not. And how often have you been up the roof and inside of your chimney to clean it out? Probably zero times too. You might be able to tidy the fireplace a little but that is as far as you care to go. Cleaning your chimney is not like raking the autumn leaves in your garden and off of your driveway.
Sweeping up leaves is still a pleasant enough task. But shoveling snow off of the garden paths, now that is quite another story as well. But yes, it can still be done. It can be backbreaking work, but at least you’re getting your exercise. Your back benefits not one drop if you attempt to go up onto your roof and try to clean out your Maryland chimney. You will probably end up breaking it and where will that leave you.
A few weeks stay in hospital if you are lucky. Doing chimney sweep Maryland work is like zipping up and down Mt Everest for able bodied and experienced chimney sweeps. And that is what you do. No, don’t go for the ladder, leave it there. You are not going to be mounting your chimney, they are. Just call them up and see what they can do for you. You will be so pleased with the finished work you will be calling on them again.
And you should. Because your chimney needs to be swept clean on a regular basis. It has been a while since anyone did go up that chimney of yours so maybe there is some repair and maintenance work for them to take care of as well.
