Your chimney sits at the highest point of your home and is therefore the most exposed part of your home. This means it has no protection from wind, rain, tornados, and hurricanes. Sometimes your chimney could even have a weak point that would allow leaves and other debris to fall in. This same weak point could also enable an animal to enter your chimney.
Issues such as these lead to water damage to not only your chimney but also other parts of your home. This means you’ll face mold growth, which causes respiratory issues, and property damage to your ceilings and walls. If these issues are not tended to, the subsequent fire you light in your fireplace could be the one that burns down your house and puts your livelihood in jeopardy.
You don’t have to spend another day with uncertainties about your chimney. Allstar Chimney Sweep Moss Point is proud to offer same-day availability so you can reclaim your time and safety. Call us today so we can help you restore your confidence in your chimney and the safety of your home.

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.

What Are The Other Types of Inspections?
Ever wonder what happens in different types of inspections? Yes, inspections look for flaws in the structure. There are two types for chimneys that look at each component in depth. At Allstar, our two types of inspections are exterior and interior. With having these inspections, especially after a natural disaster like hurricanes, insurance may or may not cover it. Best to read below for more information.
- We will check the height of the chimney, to make sure that it is the minimum proper distance from the roof penetration. This is necessary for proper draft.
- We inspect the chimney cap or spark arrestor if one is present. Chimney caps are vital to keeping out the elements, and small animals that would otherwise enter your chimney.
- We check the crown for cracks, and to make sure its shedding water correctly.
- The brickwork and mortar are inspected for cracks and damages. Cracks in the mortar are a common cause of water leaks.
- We will check the flashing that seals the chimney to the roof if the chimney is connected to, or penetrates through the roof.
- The flue liner is checked for cracks, stability, and support.
- The chimney is checked for moisture resistance.
- The Smoke Chamber/Smoke Shelf is first on our list of things to check inside the fireplace. Prefab fireplace, may or may not have a smoke chamber.
- Next is the damper, in a chimney flue, a damper closes off the flue to keep the weather (and birds and other animals) out and warm or cool air in. This is usually done in the summer, but also sometimes in the winter between uses. In some cases, the damper may also be partly closed to help control the rate of combustion. The damper may be accessible only by reaching up into the fireplace by hand or with a wood poker, or sometimes by a lever or knob that sticks down or out. We will check to see if your damper is working properly.
- Firebox/Grate, We check for rust or any popped rivets in the firebox, and to make sure the grate is in serviceable condition.
- Ash Container- ashes should be stored in a sealed metal container.
- Spark Screen/Doors, if your fireplace has a spark screen, or glass doors, we check to make sure they are properly installed and functioning as they should.
- Tools & Gloves
- Refractories- these are the floor, back, and sides of your fireplace. The materials for refractories include; masonry units, ceramics, and metal plates.
- Profile: is the joint between the firebox and the veneer into the living space.
Should I inspect my own chimney?
If you are asking yourself whether a DIY inspection is a good idea or not, then you are in the right place. The short answer is you could inspect your own chimney, but the more important question to ask yourself is: Should I inspect my own chimney?
Chimney maintenance is possible for the DIYer, or Do It Yourself Enthusiast, a complete chimney inspection and cleaning should be performed at least once a year by a chimney technician.
There are many safety concerns you need to consider before DIYing your chimney inspection.
- Protect your home with floor covering tarps.
- Must have proper equipment.
- Document the chimney’s condition.
