Frequently Asked Questions

Do the creosote logs, really work? if so, why would I need to get my chimney cleaned professionally?

The “sweep Logs” do not physically “Sweep” your chimney, but what they do is turn creosote from a soft, sticky, marshmallow-like substance to a hard flakey substance thus creating less build over time. The short answer is no, those logs will not replace a sweep, but they will if used correctly, reduce the frequency in which you will have to have your fireplace cleaned.

If I'm renting an apartment with a fireplace, is it me 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.

How much does a chimney sweep cost?

For a price quote on inspections and cleanings, contact us today. We will get your fireplace in good working order. A good Chimney sweep company will thoroughly inspect all areas of your fireplace and chimney after they have cleaned any buildup, that can hide in small cracks and damage within.

Is it worth having a chimney inspected?

Yes, there is danger in being unaware of the condition of your chimney. Fire and extensive damage can result from problems you did not even know that you had – problems that we can identify and resolve for you.

This is the second time I’ve used Sootmaster and each time they did a great job. Two years ago, I just needed a sweep. Then this time there was a bird in my chimney that they got out. I really liked that they called me ahead of time to confirm the appointment.

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

Hurricane and Storm Damage

Hurricane winds mixed with heavy rains can damage or completely rip off your chimney top. Not to mention cause thousands of dollars in damages with leaks. If your chimney was damaged by a hurricane or you want to prepare for this season, give us a call today!

Check Your Calendar 

The National Fire Protection Association recommends having your chimney professionally cleaned and inspected at least once a year. If you’ve gone a year or more without having your chimney checked out, it’s best to go ahead and make an appointment with your local chimney sweep. Experienced chimney technicians like the ones at Sootmaster will make sure your chimney is clean and working properly. 

Fireplace Odors 

Do you have unpleasant smells coming from your fireplace? It’s most likely due to a buildup of soot and creosote, which are byproducts of burning wood. Creosote can stick to the walls of your chimney and is the leading cause of chimney fires. 

Black Spots on Fireplace Walls 

Have you noticed a black, oily substance on the walls of your fireplace? This is a buildup of creosote and can be removed by a chimney technician. It is important to remove creosote to prevent chimney fires. 

Weak Fires 

If it’s difficult to start a fire in your fireplace, your chimney could be clogged. Poorly burning fires can also be a result of a malfunctioning damper. Both issues restrict the amount of oxygen that reaches your fire, stopping it from burning properly. These problems can be fixed by a knowledgeable chimney technician. 

Animals In Your Chimney 

Animals and animal nests can restrict the flow of air in your chimney or even catch fire. If you hear noises coming from your chimney or notice nests on top of it, call your local chimney sweep to have the animals safely removed.
