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 water is coming down inside my fireplace, what can I do?

The first thing to do is place a container in your fireplace to catch the dripping water, then call a Professional Chimney sweep to have a technician come and inspect the cause of the leak. Damaged masonry is often the cause for leaking chimneys. If your chimney cap has been damaged or blown off, water can also be leaking down into your chimney. This water leak can also be caused by damage to your outside chimney cap/chase cover area. It is dangerous to try and locate and repair the cause yourself, leave it to a professional.

How often should I clean my chimney?

A fireplace that has normal use during the winter months should be professionally cleaned and inspected annually. There are many reasons to have your fireplace and chimney inspected, animals love to find small safe places to hide and feel safe, and your chimney could be their haven, without you even knowing. Another factor is weather damage over time to the exterior of your chimney from the elements. These are just a couple of reasons to call your local Chimney sweep experts.

I called Sootmaster to get my chimney swept and they were able to handle the sweep and inspection the same week. I was impressed by the knowledge and attention to detail of the technician and his helper. I would recommend Sootmaster for any chimney problems

Called them out to inspect my Chimney before putting my house up for sale. They were able to recommend that I get it cleaned and did it the same day. I was glad to get it out of the way all in the same day.

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

The technicians were there on the day of my appointment, they were friendly, professional, and truly liked talking about my chimney. They were able to tell me all that was wrong my fireplace and quoted me to fix it. Very knowledgeable; I scheduled the waterproofing portion for next week and the usability portion for next month.

chimney cap

Caps, Covers, & Damper Repairs

Living in the south, mainly along the Gulf Coast, then you know there are lost of rain storms. Actually, we get more rain than anywhere else in the country, including Seattle. The ranking of the most amount of rainfall goes as follows: Mobile, Pensacola, and Seattle in 41st.

This region has such a big deal about rain when it comes to chimneys and fireplaces. As the Chimney Safety Institute of America explains, “water, not fire, causes most chimney damage.”

“Whether masonry or factory-built,” says the CSIA, “prolonged water exposure can result in cracks or gaps in chimneys where creosote can collect and increase the risk of fire or where noxious gases can escape into your home and expose your family to carbon monoxide.”

Fireplaces, Chimneys and Leaks

In basic terms the problem with fireplace and chimney leakage is that water combines with the creosote that remains from fires to form an acidic mixture. Over time that mixture can eat out the silica in the mortar joints.
Once the joints are no longer secure, moisture — remember all that Gulf Coast rain — can get into the house through the chimney. For example, if water comes in through the chimney and is released under the shingles it can lead to the need for a roof replacement.

Also, without proper sealing, heat from fires can travel into areas which should not be exposed to heat, dry out wood, and in some cases actually cause the wood to catch on fire.

In fact, according to a staff report by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are about 22,000 fires a year which are associated with fireplaces, chimneys and chimney connectors. Such fires can cause substantial damage and in some cases may lead to fatalities.

Also, without caps it does happen that birds and animals get into fireplaces. Sometimes nests are built and in some cases animals unable to get out die inside chimneys and fireplaces. Noises and odors can result from such problems.

Caps, Covers and Dampers

You can protect your household with caps, covers and dampers. Caps with spark arresters are devices that go over the flue. They keep out both moisture and animals, plus they help prevent sparks from leaving the chimney. Covers are at the top of the chimney, go around the flue, and protect against moisture. Dampers are inside the chimney itself. They can help create a proper draft to achieve the best fire, plus when closed they prevent animals from getting into the house.

Cap, Cover and Damper Services

We can install, repair and maintain caps, covers and dampers. We inspect such devices as part of our basic chimney sweep services. We have many devices in stock and can recommend the equipment which is right for your fireplace and chimney, whether it is masonry or metal, new or historic.
