Signs of Water Damage
Water damage is one of the most common issues we encounter when doing a chimney sweep or a chimney inspection. Water leaks are prevalent in regions of heavy rainfall, hurricanes, or tropical storms. A water leak can be a simple sealing issue that is fixed by touching up the exterior or a leak can be a severe problem that requires a Level 2 inspection and masonry repair. It’s important to know that almost all water leaks start out small, but over time, through prolonged water exposure, a leak can turn much bigger. Water can get trapped and expand in colder temperatures, causing cracks in the brick. Water can also mix with the soot build-up, forming an acidic mixture that deteriorates the lining of the chimney. Mold, mildew, and rust are by-products of rain and materials colliding in dark spaces. When inhaled, mold is very harmful to your health. Rust will reduce the integrity of the structure, rendering it unsafe. An annual inspection, recommended by the CSIA, will allow a technician to notice any early signs of a water leak before it can turn into a much larger issue.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
What is a flue?
A flue is a duct for smoke and waste gases produced by a fire, a gas heater, a power station, or other fuel-burning installation.
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.”
My fireplace stinks, especially in the summer. What can I do?
The smell is because of creosote deposits within the chimney, a natural byproduct of woodburning. The odor is sometimes worse during the summer when the humidity is high the air conditioning is turned on. A typical sweeping will help but usually won’t solve the smell completely. There are commercial chimney deodorants that work well, and plenty of people have good results with kitty litter or maybe baking soda set inside the fireplace. The real problem is that the air being drawn down the chimney, an indication of overall pressure problems within the house. Some make-up air should be introduced someplace else in the house. A good sealing and a top-mounted damper will reduce this air flow coming down the chimney.
Hurricane Delta is here and it brings a lot of rain. Have you noticed any chimney or fireplace damages? Any leaks or soft spots around your ceiling? Is any mortar missing on your chimney?
