Fireplace Safety for Homes, Old and New
It is essential to consider the use of a fireplace in a newly purchased home. Our technicians will inspect your chimney to ensure that it meets current building codes. In older homes, we often find chimneys that are too short or missing flue liners. If the chimney has a liner, we will inspect it for cracks that could allow heat to escape and ignite combustible materials.
Our inspectors will also look for cracks in the mortar and bricks. Any cracks wider than ⅛ inch require repointing, the process of replacing the mortar. Lastly, we will ensure that the damper works properly and doesn’t show signs of corrosion. A corroded damper could freeze in the open or closed position, making it inoperable, or even fall out.
Once your fireplace passes inspection, it is important to maintain it annually. Every year before enjoying your first fire, it is essential to have your chimney system inspected or cleaned by a professional.
What are Signs of a Bad Chimney?
If you notice any of these signs, it is important to seek professional care and attention:
Damaged Mortar: If there are any cracks, moisture can get in and cause damage to your chimney, eventually leading to collapse.
Signs of Moisture: You may notice rust or excess water, which can affect the operations and efficiency of your chimney and fireplace.
Too Much Smoke: If your flue is open and you’re still getting too much smoke, you might need to replace a liner and don’t use your chimney until the excess smoke is gone.
Bugs or Rodents in Your home: This is a sign that there is an issue with your chimney cover on your roof that allows rodents or bugs to access your chimney. Our team will go on your roof to analyze and find your solution.
Cracked Bricks or Concrete: This may seem obvious, but many cracks can go unnoticed. Make note of any cracks that you haven’t seen before on the chimney or its crown. Make sure to let us know!
