Chimney sweeping and repair are essential to maintaining your chimney and keeping your home and family safe.

Chimney Sweeping

Chimney sweeps enhance the performance and safety of your chimney, while also thoroughly cleaning it and diminishing the fume emissions caused by blockages in the passageway. These blockages are often caused by creosote buildup, which forms as a result of wood combustion.

If left unchecked, such blockages may impede the normal ascension of hot air and smoke from the fire; and if the hot air isn’t able to make its way up the chimney, it has to exit the other way — into your home — instead. This can greatly affect the performance of your chimney and fireplace, and can increase the risk of potential house fires and carbon monoxide.

Chimcare’s professional chimney sweeps eliminate these risks by sweeping your chimney with the right tools and expertise.

Chimney Repair

Chimneys add a lot of visual appeal and comfort to a home; but when they become damaged, they can also be a source of stress. While many homeowners assume that minor chimney damage is merely cosmetic and doesn’t require timely repair, even a small issue could have big consequences.

Most houses are built surrounding the fireplace, meaning that the chimney affects the entire foundation of the house. Addressing chimney cracks, unsightly damage, and any other seemingly minor issues is essential to prevent damage from spreading. Sometimes, homeowners are not even aware of existing damage, and are using their fireplaces at risk to themselves and their homes. If damage is left unchecked for too long, an ordinary chimney repair may not suffice.

Chimney repair is especially important to:

  • Get ready for winter. When the weather turns cold, you’ll want your chimney to be functioning properly. Getting your chimney flashing and crown repaired ahead of time will save you from shivering unnecessarily!
  • Reduce expenses. Small issues develop into bigger issues that carry larger price tags.
