Creosote, which forms every time wood burns, is highly flammable and is the cause of most U.S. chimney fires each year. The work of a chimney sweep involves removing creosote to greatly reduce the chance of a chimney fire as well as to prevent acidic damage to your chimney liner and internal masonry.
Along with creosote, we also remove drafting obstructions such as leaves, twigs and the nests of small animals. These obstructions cause smoke to move sluggishly through the flue and back up into the home. Smoke carries with it deadly carbon monoxide, which should be avoided at all costs.
A chimney inspection performed once a year will clue you in to what’s happening with your chimney system that you wouldn’t be aware of otherwise. Inspections cover all visible areas of the chimney and let you know about any necessary repairs so you can get them done before problems become expensive and dangerous.
Basic chimney inspections include the examination of:
- Chimney masonry
- Chimney cap
- Chimney chase top
- Chimney crown
- Roof flashing
- Areas where leaks exist
- Fireplace damper
- and much more.
