The Smell From My Chimney Keeps Coming Into My House and It Stinks!
This is a common problem caused by a dirty fireplace, the term for it is chimney breath, yes your chimney can develop bad breath..The build-up of creosote in the chimney, or on the walls of your fireplace can cause this. Also, a full ash dump or leaving burnt wood in the fireplace can cause this. Another cause can be that you are burning pre-made fire logs. These logs tend to have was in them as a binding agent and it can pool in the bottom of your fireplace or under the refractory. But don’t fret this usually can be resolved with a simple cleaning.
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.

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.
