Here at Bone Dry Masonry, we provide chimney cleaning (also called chimney sweeping) services year round. Regular cleaning will not only help your chimney operate more efficiently, but it's necessary for uncovering potential safety hazards that you can't see. Even if you don't use your fireplace often, it's important to make sure that the chimney structure is safe for when you do.
Since a damaged, deteriorating, or blocked chimney can cause chimney fires or carbon monoxide poisoning, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends having a chimney cleaning and inspection performed each year.
Our contractors are fully trained and certified to provide safe and effective chimney sweeping. To schedule a chimney cleaning appointment, call us at 1-844-386-0712 or click below.
This chimney was leaking fron the holes in the mortar and water was getting behind the gutter and dripping down the side of the chimney. You can see the saturation on the brick and the discoloration running down. We installed a kick out so the water would flow out the gutter instead of down the chimney. We did some minor tuck pointing to fix the holes in the mortar.
Every time you burn a fire in your fireplace, combustible by-products are deposited in the chimney flue in the form of creosote and soot. Creosote is a black, tar-like residue that is extremely flammable and soot is the minuscule, powder-like substance which colors smoke and consists chiefly of carbon. Hot embers from your wood burning fire may come in contact with these flammable deposits and potentially start a dangerous chimney fire.
The buildup of creosote and soot can also cause a dangerous blockage that not only interferes with the performance and efficiency of your fireplace but lead to carbon monoxide backing up in your living area.
During your chimney inspection and cleaning, we will:
Your technician will also cover your floor and furniture with drop cloths and use a HEPA vacuum filter to keep dirt and debris from your chimney out of your home.
In addition to reducing your risk of a chimney fire and improving your home's air quality, regular chimney cleanings and inspections can also help prevent expensive damage, saving you money and hassle in the long run.
