Who is Sootmaster Chimney Sweep Westlake LA?

We are a full-service chimney sweep company. Thirty years ago, The cost of home heating was on the rise and so was chimney fires. Westlake had a shortage of chimney sweeps and it was a struggle to receive quality work in a reasonable timeframe. This caused many to stop using their fireplaces, or attempt to do it themselves. We knew we had to do something. That is why we pride ourselves on having the quickest response time in the industry, back our repairs with industry-leading warranties, and do everything in our power to go above and beyond your expectations every time.


Our goal is to service chimneys and to make them safe. To provide inspections and cleanings, at a reasonable price to help prevent chimney fires, and keep carbon monoxide flowing up and out your chimney instead of flowing into your home. We solve problems such as water leaks that can cause your biggest investment to end up in ruins. We repair chimneys and fireplaces to keep them in a condition that is safe to burn. We humanely remove wildlife and fumigate for fungus and bacteria to ensure your home is clean and you are healthy.

How Does a Fireplace Work?

Fireplaces work by creating a non-combustible environment, where a fire can be started, built, and maintained, and works in tandem with your chimney. In a masonry fireplace, the chimney is the passageway for smoke and gasses to be removed safely from your home. The part that connects the chimney to the firebox is called the smoke chamber, the smoke chamber is built like an upside-down funnel and is the transition from a wide opening in the firebox to the narrower opening of the chimney.

A fire is built in the inner hearth. You may notice that the back wall in your hearth is angled slightly forward before it meets the damper, this angle allows heat to be pushed out into the home while the smoke and gasses rise into the chimney, thereby heating your home safely. In a prefabricated fireplace, there is no smoke chamber the flue comes directly out of the firebox and goes straight up to the roof the damper is located at the throat of the firebox to allow for ventilation and an updraft when in use.
