Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Do the creosote logs, really work? if so, why would I need to get my chimney cleaned professionally?
The “sweep Logs” do not physically “Sweep” your chimney, but what they do is turn creosote from a soft, sticky, marshmallow-like substance to a hard flakey substance thus creating less build over time. The short answer is no, those logs will not replace a sweep, but they will if used correctly, reduce the frequency in which you will have to have your fireplace cleaned.
If water is coming down inside my fireplace, what can I do?
The first thing to do is place a container in your fireplace to catch the dripping water, then call a Professional Chimney sweep to have a technician come and inspect the cause of the leak. Damaged masonry is often the cause for leaking chimneys. If your chimney cap has been damaged or blown off, water can also be leaking down into your chimney. This water leak can also be caused by damage to your outside chimney cap/chase cover area. It is dangerous to try and locate and repair the cause yourself, leave it to a professional.
How often should I clean my chimney?
A fireplace that has normal use during the winter months should be professionally cleaned and inspected annually. There are many reasons to have your fireplace and chimney inspected, animals love to find small safe places to hide and feel safe, and your chimney could be their haven, without you even knowing. Another factor is weather damage over time to the exterior of your chimney from the elements. These are just a couple of reasons to call your local Chimney sweep experts.
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.

Chimney Terms You Should Also Know
Your chimney is an important part of your home. The chimney system ventilates smoke and dangerous gases, keeping your home and family safe. Here are some chimney and fireplace terms to know so that you can look out for components that need repair.
The firebox is the area of the fireplace in which the fire actually burns. This is where the logs are placed and ignited. The firebox is lined with firebrick that withstands extreme heat.
Another important component of a fireplace and chimney system is the hearth. The hearth surrounds the fireplace. Its purpose is to protect the immediate area around the fireplace, such as the floor, safe from extreme temperatures.
The metal plate that opens and closes the flue is called the damper. The damper can seal the chimney when a fire is not burning to eliminate drafts. It can also be adjusted during a fire to control how much oxygen reaches the fire.
The flue is the shaft inside your chimney through which smoke and other combustion debris exits your home.
Flue liners, or chimney liners, prevent combustion debris from damaging the interior of your chimney.
A smoke chamber sits just above the firebox and underneath the flue. The smoke chamber guides smoke and gases from the fireplace and up the flue.
A chimney cap is a metal fixture that covers the opening of the chimney. Chimney caps typically have a solid top that prevents rain, debris, and animals from entering your flue. The sides consist of small, grate-like openings to allow for ventilation.
The chimney crown covers the entire top of the chimney to prevent water from running into the chimney. Chimney crowns can be constructed from metal, concrete, or stone.
Flashing is a piece of metal that connects the roof to the chimney. The flashing creates a watertight seal around the bottom of the chimney so that water cannot soak into the brick.
Learning these important chimney terms will give you a better idea of what to look out for when it comes to chimney maintenance. Knowing what part of the chimney system is having issues can give you a better idea of what your chimney repair might entail. If you’re having any issues with your chimney or fireplace, give the experts at Sootmaster a call to schedule an inspection.
