Chimney cleaning is one of the most important jobs of a chimney sweep. Using our state-of-the-art equipment, we remove creosote from inside the chimney liner. Creosote is deposited inside the chimney every time there is wood burned in a fire. The highly flammable deposits increase the risk of a hazardous chimney fire. When chimney cleaning is neglected, creosote can obstruct the chimney, causing deadly toxic fumes to enter the home.
Chimney structures are exposed to harsh conditions on the exterior and extreme temperatures on the interior. Whether a fireplace, stove, or furnace is used daily or rarely in winter, scheduling an annual chimney inspection is recommended by fire safety experts. Moisture can enter the chimney system and cause damage that becomes more expensive to repair as time goes by. Annual chimney inspections can help to cut costs of needed repairs and ensure that your venting system is safe to use.
A chimney cap is an essential accessory that prevents moisture from entering your chimney when it’s raining, sleeting, or snowing. A chimney cap will also keep out animals, leaves, and other debris. We offer chimney cap installation and recommend high-quality stainless steel or copper caps, which carry a lifetime warranty.
Chase tops prevent moisture from entering prefabricated metal fireplace systems. Chase tops are prone to leaking, rusting, and becoming damaged, which can create potential hazards. Our chimney technicians can prevent such problems from occurring by replacing masonry and deteriorating metal chase tops. We install custom-sized chase tops that perfectly fit a chimney chase, with a no-rust warranty.
When a chimney liner deteriorates, it becomes a hazard and must be repaired or replaced. Combustible parts of the home are exposed to intense heat, if the chimney liner is not in good condition. A cost-effective approach to chimney liner damage is replacement with a chimney relining system. A high-grade stainless steel tube is inserted into the chimney, to provide a safe exit for combustion gases from your heating appliance and your home.
Moisture can enter your chimney system in a variety of ways and create havoc. We can apply the highest grade water repellant to help protect your chimney. Whether we use a water-based or solvent-based product, they carry a 10-year warranty.
