Seasonal Update

With the colder weather of the season comes warm sweaters and hot cocoa. Unfortunately, the dropping temperatures also bring the possibility of damage to your chimney. Although the South is known for its mild winters, locals know that it can still get pretty cold down here. Freezing temperatures are not unheard of, and they can negatively affect your chimney.

This fall and winter, it is important to keep an eye out for signs of chimney damage due to cold weather. One of these signs is spalling. Spalling occurs when water absorbed by porous bricks freezes and expands, causing faces and pieces of brick to break off. This can weaken the structural integrity of the chimney, leading to even more issues. So, be sure to keep an eye on your chimney this season, and if you notice any spalling, contact the experts at Sootmaster. We will be happy to assist with repairs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How often should I get my chimney swept?

According to the National Fire Protection Standard 211, “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected 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?

Creosote, a natural byproduct of wood burning, can build up in deposits. Creosote deposits can cause unpleasant odors in your fireplace. In the summer, the humidity can worsen the smell. A chimney sweep and cleaning will remove the creosote buildup, which will take care of the smell. It is important to have your chimney swept and cleaned at least annually to prevent too much creosote buildup, which could lead to chimney fires.

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. Additionally, modern furnaces may cause problems with the typical flues invented to vent the older generation of furnaces. While we can still sweep and inspect them, Sootmaster is not licensed to operate on any gas fireplace. Contact a gas certified plumber or your local gas company if you need more extensive work done on your gas fireplace.

What’s safe to burn in the fireplace?

You should only burn dry, well-seasoned wood. Other flammable objects such as paper burn at much higher temperatures, which can cause any buildup to ignite. Watch this video from the CSIA to learn what NOT to burn in your fireplace.

Had a long standing water leak in my Chimney. Every time a storm would come through the fireplace would smell all moldy and it would leak this dark nasty water. Sootmasters came out and resolved the issue with haste. Well done mate! Very much recommended.

Great company to call if you have a birds nest or a raccoon stuck in your fireplace chimney. Not only do they clean and inspect, they also remove animals. This happens A LOT down here for some reason. Especially in the cold months

I called the Sootmasters for an annual inspection. I used to use another local company but they were expensive and not very nice at all. Sootmasters is affordable and reliable. The young man who came out to sweep my chimney was very nice and very helpful with tips on how to maintain my fireplace.

My wife and I called the Sootmasters as we are getting ready for winter and we use our fireplace religiously from November to March. This company always does a wonderful job and they are also very informative when it comes to how we burn during the cold season. A+ service!!!

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.
