Everyone in Dallas with a chimney should have it inspected and cleaned at least once a year by a qualified chimney sweep. Cleaning not only eliminates bad odors from your chimney, it also improves draft, which in turn, improves the efficiency of your fireplace.
Cleaning also removes dangerous creosote deposits that can build up in your chimney. These deposits can potentially ignite causing damage to your chimney and possibly your home’s foundation and structure.
A full safety chimney inspection is included with any chimney cleaning. Our fully trained technicians will check your damper, firebox, lintel packing, brick, mortar, refractory panels, mortar crown, flashing, and cap. A free estimate will be given for any repairs needed.
When it comes to creating a sense of warmth, comfort and ambiance, nothing compares to a fireplace. Whether in a new master suite, a family room addition, or a living room remodel, a fireplace is sure to become the center of attention. Many older homes have traditional masonry wood-burning fireplaces that are wonderful to look at, whether dormant with logs stacked neatly inside or alive with a crackling fire.
If you have an existing traditional fireplace, considering having a yearly chimney cleaning to improve the quality of your chamber.
There are four major causes for leaks coming from the chimney:
Chimney in need of waterproofing
Erosion and cracks in the mortar crown
Rust or damage to the chimney flashing or morar crown
Chimney in need of a proper chimney cap
Water is one of the most damaging elements for the chimney. It causes deterioration of the brick and mortar in your fire box and the chimney stack itself. It will also lead to the damper rusting making it difficult to open and close. When roofing over asphalt or wood shingles, leave all old shingles in place. Leave chimney flashings in place. If you find them still in good condition – but if not, make new flashings in the manner described.
Wildlife removal from chimney:
It is very common for an animal to live in a chimney that does not have a proper chimney cap. Birds will build nests that can cause a very serious fire hazard. It is also an ideal location for a mother raccoon to have her babies. We are experienced and trained on how to humanly remove the animals from your chimney. It is imperative that a proper chimney cap be installed to prevent them from coming back.
