Chimney Sweep Westlake


Sootmaster Chimney Sweep Westlake

Hurricane Damage Repair

After Hurricane Laura swept through Louisiana, it devastated many homes in Westlake. The Sootmaster team wants to help you the best way we know how, by providing exceptional storm damage repair to your chimney. Sootmaster is skilled with over 30 years of experience in repairing chimneys after a hurricane. Just last year, we worked for months in Panama City after Hurricane Michael.

Chimneys should be inspected annually, but it is especially important to have your chimney inspected after a hurricane. Water damage is terrible for your chimney, causing structural damage, odors, leaks, and more. Water leaks need to be stopped before they become an even bigger issue and thus more expensive.

If your chimney is missing bricks, is leaning over, or is experiencing other structural damage after a hurricane, call Sootmaster Westlake to take a look.

Even if you think your chimney and fireplace system did not experience any damage from Hurricane Laura, it would be best for your safety to call a professional chimney sweep, such as those at Sootmaster, to do an inspection. Our technicians are skilled in assessing and repairing your chimney system. If a chimney cap got blown crooked, your flashing isn’t completely sealed, or there are other existing problems that are not seen to the untrained eye, you can be sure that Sootmaster will find them. Our vast experience in dealing with hurricane-related issues makes us the superior choice for those wanting to fix any current problems and protect their home from future ones.

Called this company out at the beginning of the month and got my chimney cleaned. They did such a good job I figured I give my parents a call to get theirs cleaned too. My father said they did great work at a good price.

The technician quickly diagnosed my chimney problem during an initial visit. They were prompt when they came back to do the repairs. Now I have a chimney that is clean and no longer leaks

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
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. Modern furnaces may also cause many problems with the typical flues intended to vent the older generation of furnaces.
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.”
My fireplace stinks, especially in the summer. What can I do?
The smell is because of creosote deposits within the chimney, a natural byproduct of woodburning. The odor is sometimes worse during the summer when the humidity is high 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 maybe baking soda set inside the fireplace. The real problem is that the air being drawn down the chimney, an indication of overall pressure problems within the house. 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.
