We had Patrick, Dave, and Dennis out to our home for inspections and hurricane repairs. They were prompt efficient and clean and we would highly recommend them for any fireplace repairs.
We lost our chimney due to hurricane Michael. We had our fireplace and chimney replaced by Wayne and Zach from Sootmaster. the job they did was outstanding. I am recommending these 2 men to anyone needing chimney and fireplace repair. There work and work ethics are amazing.
Wayne and Scott did amazing work at our home. Our old fireplace had become rusted and needed to be replaced. It was a serious undertaking. Both men were very careful and extremely tidy. Thanks so much!
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.”
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.
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.
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.
