All of our professional chimney sweeps at Chimney Solutions, Atlanta, are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). The certification means that a chimney technician has all of the up-to-date knowledge and training to be worthy of your trust in performing the important task of keeping your chimney and other venting systems safe. Our chimney sweeps are pros at performing all tasks related to chimney cleaning, maintenance, chimney rebuilding, and more.
Flammable creosote deposits adhere to the inside of your chimney liner every time you use your fireplace. It’s important to schedule routine cleaning of your chimney, to prevent dangerous chimney fires, potential blockage, and damage to the lining.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that a chimney be inspected annually. We offer three different levels of chimney inspections at Chimney Solutions, Atlanta, and will help you determine which level of inspection is needed for your chimney.
One of the services we provide at Chimney Solutions, Atlanta, is installing chimney caps. We recommend that anyone with a chimney install a cap in order to keep rain out, prevent animals from getting inside the chimney, and provide a spark guard that will protect the roof and nearby combustible materials from catching fire from a hot ember.
When dampers don’t work the way they are supposed to, it can mean your indoor heating and cooling can escape up the chimney. Our chimney sweeps can repair your chimney damper and install a chimney top damper, if one is needed.
When there is no chimney cap on the top of the flue, animals can get in; oftentimes, they can’t get back out. It’s dangerous to deal with wild animals, since they could be diseased. Our chimney professionals are experienced at animal removal.
Chimney chase covers are for boxes or chases which house factory built chimneys. The chase covers are metal and keep out rain, debris, and animals. Contact our chimney professionals to custom build and install your chimney chase cover.
Our professional chimney technicians can install decorative rain shrouds to protect your chimney chase cover and help slow down deterioration of the metal chimney chase top.
When our CSIA-certified chimney professionals inspect your chimney, they are always checking to ensure that your chimney liner is in good condition. After all, a flawed chimney liner can lead to house fires and harmful gases entering the home. Virtually all chimney liners need to be replaced at some point, and we have the skill and experience to get this crucial job done right.
Mortar doesn’t last as long as the masonry on your chimney, and we can provide repair services to refresh the mortar. If moisture gets into your chimney system, it’s possible the masonry will become damaged to the point that your chimney could collapse. At Chimney Solutions, Atlanta, our chimney professionals are qualified to perform all masonry repairs with skill and expertise.
The chimney crown at the top of your masonry chimney can become cracked, which means moisture is able to get between the flue and chimney masonry. A great deal of moisture damage in your home and chimney can result from a damaged chimney crown. Our chimney sweeps can repair and, as necessary, rebuild damaged chimney crowns.
