  • Keeping your home clean is a task that never seems to end, and it can take up most of your free time. Instead of spending your weekends mopping and dusting, consider hiring a housekeeper or cleaning service.
  • Unless a housekeeper performs specific duties regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency or your state or local government, no specific licensing is usually required to become a housekeeper. However, you’ll want to work with a professional who can pass a background check and has a current business license, liability insurance and a surety bond. You’ll also want to select someone who has the experience and can provide references, or someone who has received some professional training from a cleaning company.
  • Keep in mind when hiring any type of professional to clean your home that each state has its own requirements for licensing. You can use Home Advisor’s Contractor Licensing Requirements State-By-State guide to learn more. You can also learn more about the extensive screening process we use when allowing businesses to join our network.

When you hire a housekeeper or cleaning service, there are some questions you’ll need to ask to ensure you’re hiring the right person for the job. Writing down a list of services you want to be completed is a great place to start. This way, you’ll have all the information you need when you do interview a housekeeper or cleaning service, and they can provide you with accurate information and cost estimates.

What Services Do You Offer?

Find out upfront if the housekeeper or cleaning company offers the services you need, especially if you have requests that go beyond basic services.

How Do You Come Up With Your Rates?

Do they charge a flat fee each week? Do they charge an hourly rate? Some companies charge based on your home’s square footage or the number of bedrooms you have.

Do You Provide Your Own Supplies?

Many companies may provide some smaller cleaning supplies, but they may need to use your vacuum cleaner or mop. Others bring their own or none at all. And if you’re particular about the types of chemicals used in your home, you may want to ask what products they use or if they’re willing to use what you provide.

What Happens if Something Goes Wrong?

Anytime you have a professional in your home, something could go wrong. They could get hurt, or some of your property may be damaged. Ask what would happen in these scenarios — a well-qualified professional will have the necessary insurance and bonding to cover these situations.

Some homeowners know about the importance of regular, proactive chimney cleaning. Others wait until a problem arises, at which point they look for immediate help from a company in their area. In either situation, we have chimney sweeps near you ready to help. Enter your zip code to be connected today to chimney cleaning services around you.

Understanding the Importance of Chimney Sweeping

Especially new homeowners may not be aware of the importance of a clean chimney. And yet, the simple process of sweeping it on a regular basis can help you keep your chimney functioning properly, and your home safe.

Naturally, a chimney that doesn't allow smoke to exit your home properly will result in potential smoke damage around your home. Soot will begin to accumulate around the smoke duct, which prevents smoke from escaping. Instead, it makes its way into your home, soiling your furniture and carpeting.

Smoke in your home, of course, can also be detrimental to your health. It contains carbon monoxide, which becomes responsible for headaches, nausea, dizziness, and even fainting. As the Center for Disease Control points out, carbon monoxide is responsible for thousands of deaths every year.

Finally, a chimney that is not cleaned properly can, at its worst, be responsible for a chimney fire that could destroy parts or all of your home. Leaves, branches, and bird's nests that obstruct the airflow of the chimney ignite easily, while the fire could spread to your roof and other parts of your home. A chimney that's not cleaned often enough can also result in the build up of a highly flammable chemical called creosote, resulting in the same effect.

When Does Your Chimney Need Swept?

In other words, ignoring your chimney can have inconvenient and sometimes devastating results. Understanding what you can do against it is crucial to successful (and worry-free) home ownership. That's what makes learning how often and when to sweep your chimney so important.

The Chimney Safety Institute of America follows the National Fire Protection Association in recommending that your chimney should be inspected at least once every year. If the inspection finds any type of dangerous or potentially harmful elements such as the above, a cleaning needs to follow immediately.

That timeline is important even if you don't use a fireplace belonging to your chimney on a regular basis. As detailed above, even natural elements like leaves and bird's nests can cause chimney fires, and don't require frequent use of the chimney.

If your chimney has not been inspected for at least 12 months, scheduling a sweeping immediately is your best choice regardless of the season. Once your inspections get into a rhythm, consider scheduling your chimney sweeping before the seasons during which you use your fireplace most frequently.

The Average Cost of Sweeping Your Chimney

Naturally, the cost to sweep your chimney depends on a variety of factors. Your location, the angle of your roof, the amount of soot in the chimney itself, and the time that has passed since your last cleaning can all influence how much you have to pay.

At HomeAdvisor, our users report an average cost of about $210 per cleaning. Most homeowners spend between $123 and $315 depending on the above variables, but if you are already following a regular schedule, you may pay less than $100 for each sweep.

Regardless of the exact cost, you need to find a chimney sweeper near you that can help you keep your home safe and your fireplace functional.
