Expert Chimney Maintenance Contractors Near Wainscott

The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted elements of a house. The fact that chimneys will do their job well, even when overlooked, contributes to this idea of ‘it’s probably fine’. Chimneys are far from the passive black holes that most customers assume them to be. Regular chimney maintenance is essential to prevent harm, deterioration and future widespread, high-cost chimney repairs.

Each year there are thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisonings due to faulty lined chimneys. Lots of masonry chimney materials (except for genuine stone) suffer accelerated deterioration as a result of prolonged contact with water. A stone chimney acts and looks like a brick chimney and it may also be protected from the effects of water penetration. A lot of masonry products are porous and might absorb large amounts of water. Common brick is like a sponge, absorbing water and wicking moisture to the chimney interior. Our pros only send fully-trained chimney cleaning fully-trained techs to your home that might live up to the guidelines of the CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) and the NCSG (National Chimney Sweeps Guild), the two regulatory organizations for the chimney industry in the United States.

One of the least expensive parts of the chimney venting system is the one that can prevent some of the most pricey issues. If you don’t have a chimney cap on your chimney, stop reading and call us for an estimate now! Every chimney technician knows that a safe chimney cap is a must. Most chimney caps are made from copper or stainless steel. Chimney caps also come with spark wire to prevent stray airborne particles that are still burning from exiting onto your roof. Our chimney pros could recommend the best solution for your chimney. When closed, the damper serves as a chimney cap and with a slight pull of the chain it releases the spring-loaded top into the open position when you’re ready to enjoy a nice fire. These blockages can cause fire hazards and smoke back drafting into the residence.

Metal fireboxes, liners and dampers all might suffer rust and deterioration. Chimney liner tiles and mortar can crumble and crack leading to serious issues. The chimney cap cover deflects the rain and the side mesh areas prevent pests and leaves from entering the chimney. Of course, proper chimney cleaning and maintenance are still recommended annually.

Our chimney repair and installation experts are very knowledgeable about a large variety of types of chimney caps, guards and dampers. Water causes more weakening than any other element. It soaks into porous bricks and erodes at the mortar. A chimney cap that covers all flues may protect you from inordinate repairs. Chimneys can block proper ventilation and even enter your structure, potentially spreading disease and wreaking havoc. Our strong mesh and lids may keep even the most determined animals out! Your fireplace might spew sparks out into the environment, onto the roof or nearby flammable materials. Stray sparks may be stopped cold by the meshing cover that is a component of all of our chimney caps.

The method chosen or recommended for your chimney will depend on the type of deposits. The Thermocrete process coats the inside of the chimney from top to bottom with a highly durable ceramic sealant. A lining cleaning is cost-effective and the most fitting for your fireplace chimney and in chimneys serving gas, oil, wood or coal burning appliances. It conforms to any shape, size and length of the chimney and become a non-destructive chimney lining system which is corrosion-proof, flame and heat resistant, airtight liner with a rigidity of a steel. A stainless steel chimney liner locks in moisture and flue gases in your chimney and keeps them out of your house.

This unique alloy is designed specifically to resist acids coming from gas appliances in the flue and extreme stresses of hot and cold cycles. The liner protects the house from heat transfer to combustibles. Liners protect the masonry from the corrosive byproducts of combustion. The flue gases are acidic in nature and literally eat away at the mortar joints from inside the chimney. Liners provide a correctly-sized flue for optimum efficiency of appliances. Modern wood stoves and gas or oil furnaces require a correctly-sized flue to perform exactly. An haphazardly-sized liner can lead to additional creosote buildup in wood burning stoves and the production of carbon monoxide with conventional fuels.

Our objective is to provide recommendations that could improve the safety and efficiency of your appliance and venting system. Chimneys should be cleaned when accumulations of soot and creosote approach or exceed 1/4 inch. Accumulations of glaze more than 1/8 inch may be removed. Our technicians employ many cleaning methods to remove chimney deposits. Frequent (at least annual) chimney estimates are the only way to know when the chimney requires repairs.

Several of the most common chimney cleaning practices that we provide follow:

Standard Sweep. This is the standard or normal cleaning method and involves the use of brushes to clean the flue. A powerful, well filtered vacuum is used to prevent soot and creosote from entering the home. This type of cleaning is effective for soot and ordinary creosote deposits but has little effect on glaze deposits.

Mechanical Sweeping. Mechanical cleaning involves the use of wire brushes, plastic cables or special chains rotated at high speed by an electric motor. Mechanical cleaning is often employed to remove hard creosote or glaze deposits. In some cases where it’s impossible to sweep the flue by standard or mechanical sweeping it is necessary to use chemicals that help loosen and dissolve heavy creosote and glaze deposits. These cases are hardly ever the case – but necessary in some situations, a clean sweep of your chimney can remove all of the soot, creosote and blockages from your flue liner, smoke chamber and shelf, firebox and damper. Heat, moisture, creosote and gases should be either removed and replaced, repaired or relined with a listed liner system or other approved product that will resist corrosion, softening or cracking from flue gases at temperature exact to the class of the chimney project.

Chemical cleaning: This requires two trips – sometimes even 3 – if necessary. Our chimney experts may usually be done in less couple of hours and will make sure your house does not get soiled or messy around the areas worked in. Our pros pride ourselves on “no mess” top notch project by doing a great job with minimal interruption to you.
