Chimney Relining, Inspection, Repairs
Chimney cleaning is the process of removing loose soot and creosote from the firebox, smoke chamber, and chimney liner.  Without proper cleaning and maintenance the lining of a chimney can deteriorate over time.  Overheating and Excess moisture can result in failure of the lining. Once the liner is ruptured smoke and Carbon Monoxide can enter your home.  CO is a orderless gas that can be very dangerous even deadly.   Annual inspections are very important.

Q. When does a chimney need to be re-lined?

A. A chimney needs to be re-lined when the integrity of the existing chimney liner is breached.
Q. What causes a breach or rupture in a chimney liner?

A. There are many things that cause damage to the liner, age, settlement, poor construction, overheating (chimney fires, excess moisture – water damage, falling limbs, etc.
Q. How does water damage the chimney liner?

A. When water enters the chimney, it saturates the liner. As the seasons and temperatures change, the water trapped in the liner expands and contracts. Over time this destroys the integrity of the liner. A simple way to prevent water damage is to install a chimney cap. For more information on chimney caps, click here.
