Tim is very knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. He answered all of my questions. He was neat and quick with the job. I’m definitely telling my friends and family to go to Soot Master and to ask for Tim. He is the best.
Cole came out and helped me with an inspection and a quote on my leaking chimney! He also was a makeshift exterminator and killed a wasp nest in the chimney as well. Fantastic job– I highly recommend! Thank you thank you thank you, Cole!
Cole did a great job with the inspection of our home and made recommendations based on his findings. We would highly recommend Sootmasters for any chimney needs.
Had an issue with smoke coming into the house. Sootmaster came and resolved the issue last winter. Very affordable and highly recommended.
Sootmasters cover the whole Jacksonville area. I always call them before the winter season for inspection and cleaning. A+ service.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
I have a gas fireplace. Should this chimney be checked too?
Without a doubt! Although gas is usually a clean-burning fuel, the chimney can become non-functional from bird nests or other debris blocking the flue. Modern furnaces may also cause many problems with the typical flues intended to vent the older generation of furnaces.
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.
