Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Does a chimney need to be swept and inspected every year?
A regularly used fireplace should be inspected and cleaned annually, because of many factors. Over time soot can build up and become a danger, animals can make your chimney their home, or the weather can cause hidden damage to your chimney that you cannot see.
What should I do about smoke coming out of my fireplace?
Having smoke in your home is serious for your health and your belongings. Modern airtight homes can keep the fire from drawing enough air, so It will draw air down the chimney and into your home. We can help troubleshoot these problems with you.
Do you make water leak repairs to masonry chimneys?

High Quality Materials
Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed
Don’t Burn All the Time
Fireplaces are built for short-duration fires. Your fireplace isn’t meant to completely replace your heater, so fires shorter than 5 hours are recommended.
Keep Flammables at a Safe Distance
Make sure any combustibles are kept well away from the fireplace. This includes furniture and decor. A rogue ember can quickly ignite any surrounding flammable materials. Keep any furniture or decor such as drapes at least three feet away from the fire at all times.
Use Tools Properly
Don’t EVER use your bare hands when a fire is burning. Always use the correct fireplace tools to stoke the fire or shift burning logs. Fire is extremely dangerous and can quickly cause burns and injuries, so it is important to keep a safe distance.
Don’t Overload the Fireplace
Too many logs in the fire can quickly cause it to become out of control. Use only as many logs as is necessary to maintain a steady fire.
Never Leave Fire Unattended
It is NEVER safe to leave the room when a fire is burning. Accidents happen and can quickly escalate. Always keep an eye on your fire to make sure it is burning properly.
Have Your Chimney Inspected
Fire safety organizations recommend having your chimney cleaned and inspected at least once a year. This simple task can easily prevent accidents such as chimney fires from occuring. Inspections ensure that your chimney and fireplace are safe to use.
Keeping Warm in the Winter
When temperatures drop, many people turn to the warmth of a fireplace to combat the cold outside. Since winter might have your fireplace working overtime, follow these tips to keep your fireplace operating safely.
