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.”
Call Sootmaster, the leading expert in fireplace cleaning, chimney sweeps, and more maintenance services regarding your home’s fireplace or chimney.
My fireplace stinks, especially in the summer. What can I do?
Creosote deposits are a natural byproduct of woodburning. These deposits build up in the chimney or fireplace and begin to cause an alarming odor. It can be worse during the summer when the humidity is high and 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 baking soda set inside the fireplace. Check out our videos page to learn more about cresote deposits!
The real problem is that the air being drawn down the chimney can be an indication of non-ideal pressure build up. 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?
Absolutely! 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. Sootmaster is not licensed to operate on any gas fireplace; Contact a gas certified plumber or gas licensed fireplace company for your needs.
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.

Secure your fireplace damper. This prevents moisture from the storm from building up in your fireplace or chimney.
Invest in a chimney cap. This will keep even more moisture out of your fireplace or chimney to ensure you stay warm all year long.
Get inspected. Sootmaster recommends yearly fireplace or chimney inspections. Getting inspected before a storm causes damage can save you a lot of trouble during the storm.
We found it nearly impossible to find a company willing to replace our chimney caps because of the high pitch of our roof. Your guys came out, assessed the job and came back and completed it. The work quality is excellent and we couldn’t be happier.
Very courteous and professional. A job well done. Very knowledgeable about what they do and can help explain things. Awesome job Neal!
These guys were such a pleasure to deal with, they were professional, knowledgeable, clean, and just darn right awesome to do business with.
