Chimney Sweeping and Inspections

When you burn a fire, the fire produces gas. This gas usually rises through the chimney and out through the top. However, some gas can cling to the sides of the flue tiles and build up. This unburned gas is called soot. While soot is not inherently dangerous, another byproduct of fire is. Creosote is another thing that is left behind when the wood is burned.

The creosote found in chimneys is usually a mix of creosote, tar, and soot. The danger in creosote is that it is highly combustible. If you have a buildup of creosote in your chimney’s flue, high temperatures can cause it to combust, thus resulting in a chimney fire.

Our AllStar Chimney Sweep Crestview technicians perform a 21-point chimney safety inspection to locate any problems it might have, as well as to ensure the safety of your home. Our Chimney Sweep Crestview technicians also perform quality chimney sweeps that rid your chimney of any dangerous creosote and soot buildup.

The Chimney Safety Institute of America states, “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.” AllStar Chimney Sweep Crestview can help.

Humane Chimney Animal Removal

Have you ever heard strange noises coming from your chimney? Chirps, rattles, squeals? Well, animals can find their way into your chimney and potentially get stuck. The most common animals AllStar Chimney Sweep Crestview find in chimneys are birds, bats, squirrels, and raccoons.

These animals could be looking for shelter during harsh weather or temperature. If you hear these animals, it’s important that you schedule them for removal. If the animal were unfortunately passed while in the chimney, you could be exposing your family to hazardous toxins.

Histoplasmosis is a respiratory disease caused by inhaling animal droppings or remains. An easy way to prevent animals from getting into your chimney is to have a chimney cap or damper installed. AllStar Chimney Sweep Crestview can help. So if an animal finds its way into your chimney, call Allstar Chimney Sweep Crestview for humane chimney animal removal.
