In case you’re not a Fluesbrothers customer, we want to share with you the reasons chimney sweeping and professional inspections are critical to keeping your chimney safe and in good working order.
Chimney Sweep Technicians Remove Flammable Creosote
Wood fires send smoke up into your flue, where the condensation effect causes a substance known as creosote to form. Creosote is highly flammable and is the reason for most chimney fires each year in Overland Park and other areas within the United States.
Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps have the tools, equipment and experience to remove solid, flakey or puffy creosote from your flue and significantly reduce the risk of a devastating chimney fire. Chimney cleaning once a year is strongly recommended.
Chimney Inspections Find Early Signs of Trouble
A licensed, certified chimney inspector is able to examine your entire chimney structure and its components and spot early signs of damage that could lead to serious chimney repair or rebuilding projects. Addressing problems quickly will save you money and add to your peace of mind.
Annual chimney inspections for our Overland Park, KS, customers typically cover:
Chimney masonry (bricks and mortar)
Leaky chimney issues
Components including the chimney cap, chimney crown, chimney chase top, roof flashing, fireplace damper and more
Chimney Sweep Services Prolong the Life of Your Chimney Liner
Buildups of creosote inside your flue can cause damage over time to your chimney liner. Whether your liner is made of metal, clay tiles or a poured-in-place compound, it can slowly be eaten away by the acidic compounds that creosote contains.
A compromised chimney liner will allow intense heat and smoke to damage your chimney’s internal masonry. When this happens, the chimney can begin to leak, walls and insulation can catch on fire and the entire chimney structure may become unstable and therefore unsafe.
Chimney Technicians Clean Out Drafting Obstructions
Along with creosote removal, our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps also clean out tree leaves and twigs, the nests of small animals, dead animals and any other debris that may have gotten into your chimney. All these obstructions can cause smoke to draft improperly and send deadly carbon monoxide into your home.
