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 technicians perform a 21-point chimney safety inspection to locate any problems it might have, as well to ensure the safety of your home. Our 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.”
Have you ever heard strange noises coming from your chimney? Chirps, rattles, squeals? Well, animals can find there way into your chimney and potentially get stuck. The most common animals we 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 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. If animals do enter your chimney we advise you to call a professional. Many Animals carry diseases such as rabies and starting a fire hoping the smoke will make them climb out naturally never works. So if an animal finds its way into your chimney, call Allstar Chimney Sweeps of Milton, FL for humane chimney animal removal.
Water leaks are the most common culprit for chimney damage. If it goes unnoticed it can lead to terrible hazards. Here are three types of damage caused by water:
Bricks can absorb water like a sponge. In the winter, any water that was absorbed during rainfall can freeze. Once the seasons change, this water will thaw and expand, causing cracks and the faces of the bricks to break off. They can also cause weakness in the bricks, which leads to structural problems. One way to prevent this is by making sure your chimney is getting enough sunlight to dry. You could also get Allstar’s chimney water repellent services.
If water were to enter your chimney, it can damage the clay tile liners. Any cracks discovered in the liner should be worked on ASAP. Water may also cause rust to form on the damper or firebox. If you notice rust or tile damage, schedule an appointment for an inspection to determine the severity and cause of the water damage.
Water leaks can also cause mold and mildew to form on your wall, ceilings, and fireplace. Mold and mildew can be hazardous if inhaled and there are some that experience allergic reactions when exposed.
