Chimney Sweep & Masonry Repair Services
Having a fireplace adds beauty and classic elegance to your home, and it can also provide you with a cozy, comfortable place to spend time with family and friends. When your fireplace and chimney look their best, it not only adds value to your home, but it also makes it safe to enjoy fires indoors. Many families hesitate to enjoy their fireplace because they are not sure that their fireplace or chimney is structurally sound or they are afraid of fires that can occur from creosote buildup. With a thorough inspection, we can tell you if your fireplace and chimney are safe to use and, if not, we can make the necessary repairs to restore it. If you are concerned about chimney fires, a thorough cleaning through our chimney sweep & masonry repair services will ensure that you are not at risk and can enjoy curling up by a cozy fire with your family in the winter time.
Professional Chimney and Fireplace Inspection with Creosote Removal
After you purchase a home with a fireplace, it is difficult to know how long it has been since the last cleaning. Before purchasing, a review of the chimney and fireplace may be included in your home inspection. If it is not, a chimney and fireplace inspection will ensure that the area is safe for fires before you use it. An inspection can also reveal if a chimney is in need of cleaning to remove creosote and other built-up soot and grime that can clog your chimney or increase the risk of chimney fires. If your chimney has become clogged over time, it can prevent carbon monoxide from escaping which means that smoke and harmful gases can linger inside your home.
Creosote is the buildup of byproducts of gas and fumes from wood burning in your fireplace that pass through the chimney and can accumulate over time. This substance is highly flammable and can ignite when an ember comes into contact with it. Our chimney cleaners work around your schedule and remove creosote and tar build-up completely, allowing you to safely use your chimney again.
Besides creosote, other issues can affect your chimney and fireplace that make it unsafe to use or that may detract from the value of your home. Though the chimney and fireplace may look secure at first-sight, small cracks or areas that are not sealed properly can lead to leaks. If you notice areas around your chimney become wet or damp during rain or snow, leaks in the chimney may be to blame. These damp areas can also allow mold to grow, introducing a new hazard to your home, and these leaks can slowly lead to further damage to the chimney.
Our experts will inspect your chimney and fireplace to find areas where any seals have weakened or where wear has weakened the supports structures, making any necessary repairs or performing needed maintenance work to ensure your chimney and fireplace work properly and safely again.
