Fireplaces, Chimneys, Vent Pipes, and Rooftop Exhausts, need to be Inspected reguarly for Maintenance, and Interior Flue Cleaning.

These Exhaust outlets, allow fumes, smoke, vapors, and gases, to Exit from your fireplace, furnace and Natural Gas water heater, so it’s important to maintain them properly.

Neglecting your chimney can lead to very expensive major repairs.

The three most serious problems that result from poorly maintained chimneys are:
1) Carbon monoxide poisoning
2) Chimney fires and Heater Soot/Creosote Puffbacks.
3) Premature failure of the fireplace and chimney, which leads to Water Damage intrusion, and possibly Structural issues with your property.

As the smoke rises up the chimney, it comes into contact with the relatively cooler interior of the chimney (the flue), where some of the smoke condenses, like steam on a glass of cold water. The resulting condensed smoke is called creosote. Creosote is a black or brown gummy substance that builds up on the flue. Once a sufficient amount of creosote builds up, it can catch fire.
