Chimneys,or fireplaces are certainly a pleasant and enjoyable experience and also a timeless design element. Some can be very old, built from wood or clay or some may follow modern trends like steel or other components such as frame design. We want to share with you some common chimneys problems for you to be aware and keep in mind to prevent any inconvenience.
If you notice any smoke inside your house, check it as soon as possible. This is a simple indication of obstruction and is frequently caused by a bird’s nest. Treat this issue on time because it can trigger carbon monoxide poisoning or fires. Our experts can easily fix this occurrence for you and your loved ones.
Built up Creosote
Creosote is the residue left behind after fossil fuels are burned. It is extremely dangerous as it builds up because it can produce an uncontrollable fire and also compromise airflow.
Fractures in Brickwork
Even though bricks are extremely durable and timeless, the mortar is not. It can be repaired easily if it’s noticed in time. If it is left unnoticed and in disrepair, it could potentially lead to a collapse.
Broken Chimney Liner
It’s very important to make it a rule: Never use a chimney if you perceive it to be broken; due to several causes, the liners will crack over time. Exposure to extreme heat or weather conditions can release harmful gases and even cause a fire that can seep into your house through the crack lines. Prevent this to keep your family in good health.
Closed Damper Stuck
Another key explanation why the smoke does not properly exhaust or escape out is because the damper stuck is closed which could be from deterioration or lack of proper maintenance.
Schedule a Chimney Makeover
To avoid fires, your fireplace should be secure and well-maintained, but it should also be beautiful and relaxing for you to feel calm at home. A chimney overhaul is always a good idea to add a new atmosphere to your house and increase its value.
