Chimney Inspection and Repair
The inspections of chimneys are an important service offered by A Neat Sweep. Chimney inspections come in many forms and you should be aware that not all inspections are alike. During the course of a chimney inspection, the technician on the job will usually check for missing mortar joints, deteriorated brick, excessive creosote accumulation and to see if the damper is working properly. For the cleaning part of the job, specially designed wire brushes attached to long poles and high-powered vacuums are used.
Chimney cleaning is needed to remove creosote deposits and other debris from chimneys and vents. Creosote buildup in chimneys can lead to chimney fires or flue blockages. During a chimney fire temperatures inside the chimney often exceed 2,000 degrees and this can destroy your chimney and may set the house on fire. In the event of a flue blockage, which may be caused by creosote or other debris such as animal nesting, dangerous fumes can be forced into your home. Chimney cleaning is a vital service to protect the health and safety of your family and home. All chimneys, including the chimney for your furnace, should be inspected annually with cleaning performed as needed.
Chimney caps are made from a variety of materials. The most common are galvanized, stainless steel, and copper. Caps made of stainless steel and copper will last much longer than those made of regular galvanized metal and normally carry an extended warranty. Spending a little extra for a good quality chimney cap will be money well spent and there will be no danger of rust staining the chimney.
Listed below are several good reasons to have a chimney cap: Keep out rain, snow and sleet.
- Keep out animals and birds.
- Keep out leaves, twigs and other debris which could lead to a blockage or chimney fire.
- Keep sparks from leaving the chimney and igniting nearby combustibles.
- Help eliminate wind-induced downdrafts.
