Frequently Asked Questions

Do chimneys for gas fires need serviced?

Definitely; all flues can get blocked by debris from animals and exhaust from the fire can cause corrosive buildup. There is also risk that the venting system isn’t working properly if the gas stove was installed.

Is it safe to have a chimney cleaned when there's nice carpet around it?

Our professionals take great care to protect the homes of our customers. Leaving our workspace clean and beautiful is as important to us as the quality chimney care we provide.

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.

Can I clean my fireplace and chimney myself?

Trying to clean your chimney and fireplace yourself can be a dangerous and time-consuming task. A professional Chimney sweep can find damage that can cause even more problems later. A cleaning and inspection can usually be completed in under an hour, verses trying to tackle the job yourself, could take an entire weekend. Call us today, and schedule with pro.

Honest, professional, and reasonable. Came in, all wore their masks while they were in the house which we felt was very respectful. Offered some suggestions about things that we would likely need to do in the future and gave us prices but were very honest about the condition of our chimney and didn’t suggest any work that didn’t need to be done.

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.

Had a downdraft issue in my fireplace. The guys came out and put some type of device on the top to keep the draft out. Quick and easy fix!

Called Sootmaster to clean the chimney in my rental property. Was very impressed by their company’s response time and quick service. I would use them again if I had problems in my other properties.

I stumbled upon Sootmaster’s blog while looking up how to decorate my fireplace and read a few articles. One of their articles said that I needed a chimney sweep every year so I gave them a call. The team was helpful and professional and I would use them again.

The Sootmaster workers that cleaned my chimney were very helpful in both the cleaning process, as well as the process of informing me of the reasons behind why the chimney needed to be cleaned. I’m very thankful for their quick, professional work and friendly environment!
