Summertime has arrived and we all know that means a lot of heavy rain and thunderstorms. Louisiana is one of the rainiest states in the entire country. With bad weather comes damage and chimneys are one of the most vulnerable areas of your home. Chimney can become damaged by wind, rain, and even lightning. The damages caused by these will also be more severe if your chimney had any prior malfunctions or cracks.

Give your local Sootmaster a call if you have suffered any damages this summer or if you would like an inspection to ensure there are no underlying issues that could cause your chimney to be more prone to storm damage. Pushing off repairs can cause the damages to become more extensive and that can get costly. We will create the best plan for your repairs and help make you feel safe when using your chimney!

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Creosote?

When we inspect your chimney, we are looking for any number of potential signs that show damage to the inside of the flue or the outside structure. But primarily, what we look for and clean is creosote. Creosote is a tar-like substance that builds up within the chimney after you burn wood. It combines with soot and becomes highly flammable. 

I'm unsure how to work my damper. Can you explain to me how?

This is a common question.  If the damper is not functioning correctly or if it’s closed, you’ve got a situation on your hands that may lead to a smoky room at best and a fire hazard at worst. The damper is a hinged metal plate or valve used to seal the fireplace when not in use. You want the damper to be fully open, and you want it to be in the open position before you light your fire, for obvious safety reasons.

How often should I get my chimney swept?

According to The National Fire Protection Association Standard 211, “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.”

What's safe to burn in the fireplace?

You should only burn well-seasoned wood. Watch this video from the CSIA to learn what NOT to burn in your fireplace.

Hurricane Safety Tips

Hurricane season has begun and we want to provide you with the best tips to keep your home and chimney as safe as possible during the bad weather that may occur.

    • Shut the Fireplace Damper: When your damper is open during a storm, rain and moisture will get trapped in your chimney flue and that can cause many problems. If your chimney has been leaking, look into getting a Locktop Damper installed.
    • Invest in a Chimney Cap: Essentially a chimney cap is a roof that goes over the hole at the top of your chimney flue. A properly installed chimney cap will keep most of the rain out while also adding extra protection against hurricane damage.
    • Get a Chimney & Fireplace Inspection: Getting an inspection before any major storms or hurricanes occur can prevent any problems your chimney may have from worsening. If your firebox has cracks, any flooding or water build-up can cause severe structural issues.

Sootmaster Chimney Sweep Baton Rouge is here to help and guide you through any questions or concerns you may have. Feel free to give us a call or make an appointment today!

Did You Know?

Baton Rouge gets an average rainfall of 60.6 inches per year! The reason all of that rain is a problem is that Baton Rouge is an extremely flat part of Louisiana which causes drainage to be really poor. This results in flooding being one of the main concerns local residents have. Flooding can cause a variety of issues for your chimney such as damaged mortar and unstable foundations. Due to these heavy amounts of rainfall, be sure you’re getting your annual fireplace and chimney inspection recommended by the CSIA.
