When people think of Dallas Texas, sometimes they think of the Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys or they think of a man with 10 gallon Cowboy hats riding in a Ford truck through acres of land to check on one of his many oil wells. Chewing on a piece a straw of course! But there really is so much more to Dallas than that. Here are just a few interesting facts…
The nation’s first convenient store 7-Eleven started here in 1922
The idea for the ATM came for Don Wetzel in the 1960’s. One of our most favorite inventions I would say!
The frozen margarita was invented in 1971 by restaurateur Mariano Martinez. Another favorite for some of us.
It’s even said that the “Super Bowl” name originated in Dallas also.
President John F. Kennedy was assassinated here November 22, 1963 in Dealey Plaza. Which was one of the saddest days in American History. I’ll add one more interesting fact to not leave us on a sad note…. The Dallas Public Library has a permanent display of an original copy of the Declaration of Independence printed on July 4, 1776! How interesting is that!
And…the streets are actually paved in blue and silver to represent America’s and our owner’s favorite team the Dallas Cowboys.
But Dallas is so much more than that! It’s a thriving metropolis for all walks of life. It’s full of mansions, muti and single family homes and plenty of people to fill them. Which means plenty of home improvement companies to service them all. Usually, home improvement companies are only called when something breaks down but something like sweeping your chimney should be done before your fireplace breaks down. Performing regular maintenance on your fireplace will easily save you thousands of dollars in the long run.
A Dallas chimney sweep refers to as the cleaning of soot out of the chimney flue. This action is completed with a chimney brush and vacuum. The brush loosens the soot on the walls of the flue or in the flue pipe causing it to fall into the firebox where it’s vacuumed up. It’s usually cleaned from the bottom up.
Getting a Dallas chimney sweep is easy!
Performing a Dallas chimney sweep on a regular basis is crucial if you burn wood regularly. If not, it’s still important to get an inspection from time to time because if you do decide to burn wood one day and there are issues that you’re not aware of, it could be a travesty.
It is best to get an inspection before cleaning your chimney just make sure there are no issues. Most companies will recommend that you have this done prior to the cleaning. Some customers think that they would already know if there was something wrong but that’s not true. There are many issues that are invisible to the regular eye. Once the chimney is cleaned and the company has stamped their name on it, this is an indication that the chimney is safe to use, unless they have pointed out any areas where attention is needed. If a company does perform a Dallas chimney sweep without the inspection and a fire occurs, the company could be held liable. This is also the reason that you want to make sure that the company you hire is extremely knowledgeable on rules and regulations concerning fireplaces.
