Fireplace Chimney Sweep Solutions
Certified and insured, Family owned and operated since 1979
We remove dangerous, flammable creosote from inside the chimney. We clean brick fireplaces, prefab fireplaces, inserts and wood stoves. A fireplace standard cleaning includes a visual inspection and removal of the flaky creosote deposits from the fireplace system (the chimney flue, smoke chamber and firebox). Special rods, chimney brushes, hand brushes and a vacuum are used. Creosote is flammable and the risk of a chimney fire is present. If this creosote is ignited, the intensity of the heat can crack the tile liner and flames pose a fire hazard to the home. The tile liner is one of the many areas we check during an inspection.
Smoking & Draft Problems
A fireplace is a warm and inviting fixture in the home. If you use it throughout the year, this fixture can provide an alternative heat source from a central heating system. Fireplaces, however, are prone to safety issues, fire hazards and smoke problems, especially when they do not receive proper care and maintenance. When a fireplace begins to smoke, several factors might be to blame.
We use a camera to inspect what cant been seen by the naked eye inside the chimney, looking for cracks and missing mortar between tiles as well as buckled pipes in prefab chimneys.
This returns a deteriorating, unsafe fireplace and/or chimney to safe condition quickly and economically.
