Frequently Asked Questions

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.
 
Can you repair the cracked walls of my fireplace?
Yes, 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.
 
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 didn’t even know that you had – problems that we can identify and resolve for you.
 
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.
 

Called the Soot master when we started having issues with rain coming through the top of my chimney and creating a very bad smell. We finally had an inspection and had a cap put on the top so when it would rain we would no longer have issues. Highly recommend company.

Don’t Burn All the Time

Fireplaces are built for short-duration fires. Your fireplace isn’t meant to completely replace your heater, so fires shorter than 5 hours are recommended.

Keep Flammables at a Safe Distance

Make sure any combustibles are kept well away from the fireplace. This includes furniture and decor. A rogue ember can quickly ignite any surrounding flammable materials. Keep any furniture or decor such as drapes at least three feet away from the fire at all times. 

Use Tools Properly

Don’t EVER use your bare hands when a fire is burning. Always use the correct fireplace tools to stoke the fire or shift burning logs. Fire is extremely dangerous and can quickly cause burns and injuries, so it is important to keep a safe distance. 

Don’t Overload the Fireplace

Too many logs in the fire can quickly cause it to become out of control. Use only as many logs as is necessary to maintain a steady fire. 

Never Leave Fire Unattended

It is NEVER safe to leave the room when a fire is burning. Accidents happen and can quickly escalate. Always keep an eye on your fire to make sure it is burning properly.

Have Your Chimney Inspected

Fire safety organizations recommend having your chimney cleaned and inspected at least once a year. This simple task can easily prevent accidents such as chimney fires from occuring. Inspections ensure that your chimney and fireplace are safe to use.

Keeping Warm in the Winter

When temperatures drop, many people turn to the warmth of a fireplace to combat the cold outside. Since winter might have your fireplace working overtime, follow these tips to keep your fireplace operating safely.
