Frequently Asked Questions
Can I clean my fireplace and chimney myself?
Trying to clean your chimney and fireplace yourself can be a very dirty, dangerous, and time-consuming task. A professional Chimney sweep can find damage that can cause even more problems later. A cleaning and inspection can usually be completed in under an hour, versus trying to tackle the job yourself, which could take an entire weekend. Call us today, and schedule with pro.
Can you repair the cracked walls of my fireplace?
We can do all repairs needed to restore your fireplace to proper working order. Cracks in the brick and mortar of your Fireplace undergo a lot of stress from excessive exposure to weather. When the joints get damaged and split, chimney leaks become a common problem and can leave your fireplace unsafe to operate. Call us and let our professional technicians handle the job.
How do I know If my chimney and fireplace need cleaning?
A typically used fireplace should be annually cleaned and inspected a minimum of once a year. If the fireplace is used daily as a main source of heat, it should be checked more often. If you use your fireplace consistently during the winter, or you notice a black buildup on the walls of the fireplace, it should be cleaned annually. When a Chimney sweep comes, they will also inspect the fireplace and chimney from the outside and check for damage from the weather.
If I'm renting an apartment with a fireplace, is it my or my landlords’ responsibility to get my Fireplace cleaned?
This care responsibility should be listed in your lease. If you are not sure, call your landlord, let them know of your concern. A fireplace should be cleaned and inspected at least once a year if used regularly.
Appears similar to a flat shovel. It is associated with digging, mainly meant to pick up ashes, hot coals, and burning embers. Moving around the ashes and providing a cleaner burn, there will be a decrease in smoke production. Typically, use to clean ashes and coals once they are cooled by scooping them into the ash dump door.
Similar to the ones for cooking, but these are much larger. These are large enough to grab logs, pieces of wood, and breaking up burnt wood to provide more oxygen. More oxygen creates more flames and less smoke.
A tiny/small broom that is to sweep out ashes from the fireplace once a fire has been extinguished. This is important to have because all fires create ash and it fits in the fireplace to clean.
Not one of the more commonly known tools, but meant to blow a controlled gust of oxygen into the fire to increase the flames. There is a valve on the end to direct the wave of air. It is to help start the fire by increasing the flame size and heat. Typically used to light the kindling.
A long metal extended rod with a pointed end, similar to a Philips screwdriver. Can move wood in the fire.
A rarer tool and known as a ‘log-dog’. It is a horizontal bar that is used to hold/support logs that are fed to the flames. It allows more air to pass through, producing a cleaner burn.
The Toolset You Don’t Play With
As a young kid and you’re over at your grandparents house playing in the den. Well, in the den, there is a fireplace. Right beside the fireplace was a set of tools that looked interesting and cool to play with. Below are descriptions of each tool in the set. Reminder, each set does not include all six pieces; some have less while others have seven or more.
We found it nearly impossible to find a company willing to replace our chimney caps because of the high pitch of our roof. Your guys came out, assessed the job and came back and completed it. The work quality is excellent and we couldn’t be happier.
Very courteous and professional. A job well done. Very knowledgeable about what they do and can help explain things. Awesome job Neal!
These guys were such a pleasure to deal with, they were professional, knowledgeable, clean, and just darn right awesome to do business with.
Thank you Sootmaster
