Allstar Chimney Sweep Coden
Ever since Allstar Chimney Sweep Coden was established more than 30 years ago, our number one goal for Coden customers has been to ensure the safety of chimney use in our community. We care about the well-being of people around us and continuously complete training to stay up to date on the safest and most efficient chimney service methods. We use industry-leading products and service techniques for each and every one of our customers.
Your chimney may not need frequent sweeps but the National Fire Protection Association recommends having your chimney inspected annually. An annual inspection will decrease your risk of having a house fire. The technicians of Allstar perform a multi-point inspection that allows them to observe each and every aspect of your chimney and fireplace.
To keep you involved, our technicians take photos throughout the inspection process and provide you with a condition report upon completion of services. Since we offer sweeps, waterproofing, animal removals, installations, and repairs as well, we are qualified to follow up on any necessary chimney and fireplace maintenance for you.
Leaving a chimney or fireplace unassessed can easily have life-changing impacts on you and your home. Some chimney deterioration is common because chimneys are constantly absorbing precipitation. A masonry chimney is similar to a sponge as it is dry and porous and absorbs and releases water. As this cycle is repeated the brick and mortar begin to break down and cause a leaky chimney. A leaky chimney results in discoloration of the bricks, rusted chimney and fireplace parts, mold growth, and foul smells.
These water issues aren’t exclusive to masonry units. Prefabricated chimneys also experience leaks that yield these same results. Ultimately, even if your chimney isn’t being used it’s still necessary to have it inspected so you can live safely and avoid costly damage to your home.
There is something you can do to avoid unforeseen circumstances that result from a neglected chimney. Allstar Chimney Sweep Coden is ready to help you get scheduled for your annual inspection today so you can know that your chimney isn’t a threat to you and your home.
Commonly Requested Services
Chimney sweeps are vital to the lifespan of your chimney and in promoting safety in your home as a whole. A sweep removes soot and creosote to help you avoid the devastating result of a chimney or house fire. They also offer the great benefit of providing the technician performing the sweep with the opportunity to complete an inspection on your fireplace and chimney to make sure other safety measures are also in place.
No one should be in need of a masonry repair and be faced with a long drawn-out process. Allstar proudly offers a two-step process in masonry repairs. Step one consists of you getting your initial inspection. Step two consists of the technicians coming right back to your home to complete your specialized repair plan. A huge part of our mission is to provide quality repairs while also using the opportunity to involve and educate our customers.
All people do not get inspections for the same reasons. Some people are experiencing issues such as water leaks or foul smells while others may be in the process of buying, selling, or renovating their homes. Whatever the reason is that you’re seeking an inspection, Allstar has you covered. With over 30 years of experience, Allstar has created an inspection process that will include a survey of each aspect of your chimney.
Repairs on Caps, Covers, & Dampers
In areas like the Gulf Coast and along the eastern coast, there are more rain storms than anywhere else in the United States. This particular region gets more rain than Seattle. Based on the rainfall, Mobile and Pensacola are in the top two spots while Seattle is in the 41st spot. This regions rainfall is a big deal when it comes to chimneys and fireplaces. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) says, “water, not, causes most chimney damage.” The CSIA also says, “Whether masonry or factory-built, prolonged water exposure can result in cracks or gaps in chimneys where creosote can collect and increase the risk of fire or where noxious gases can escape into your home and expose your family to carbon monoxide.”
Fireplaces, Chimneys and Leaks
In basic terms the problem with fireplace and chimney leakage is that water combines with the creosote that remains from fires to form an acidic mixture. Over time that mixture can eat out the silica in the mortar joints.
Once the joints are no longer secure, moisture — remember all that Gulf Coast rain — can get into the house through the chimney. Water seeps through the chimney, underneath the shingles leading to a roof replacement.
Without the proper sealant, heat from fires can travel into areas which should not be exposed to heat, dry out wood, and in some cases cause the wood to catch on fire.
According to a staff report by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, there are about 22,000 fires a year associated with fireplaces, chimneys and chimney connectors. Such fires can cause substantial damage and in some cases may lead to fatalities.
Also, without caps it does happen that birds and animals get into fireplaces. Sometimes nests are built and animals unable to get out die inside chimneys and fireplaces. Noises and odors can result from such problems.
Caps, Covers and Dampers
You can protect your household with caps, covers and dampers. Caps with spark arresters are devices that go over the flue. They keep out both moisture and animals, plus they help prevent sparks from leaving the chimney. Covers are at the top of the chimney, go around the flue, and protect against moisture. Dampers are inside the chimney itself. They can help create a proper draft to achieve the best fire, plus when closed they prevent animals from getting into the house.
Cap, Cover and Damper Services
Our technicians can install, repair and maintain caps, covers and dampers. We inspect such devices as part of our basic chimney sweep services. We have devices in stock and can recommend the equipment that is right for your fireplace and chimney, whether it is masonry or metal, new or historic.
