WHAT WE DO
How We Do It
At Carbon Chimney Sweeps in Chattanooga, professionalism is of the utmost importance. We not only care about properly delivering dryer vent cleaning, chimney repair, or fireplace cleaning. We care about your safety as well. With the incorporation of drop clothes, we are able to keep you home clean and safe. We do this by covering all surfaces next to the fireplace with the drop clothes.
As much as chimneys are made of materials that are fire-resistant, they become worn out with time. The metals inside may warp. The mortar used may get tired. The flue liners may disintegrate. In case any of the above happens, it can cause dire effects including increased risk in fire outbreaks, massive emissions of carbon monoxide, or severe damage to your home.
Chimney inspections come in three levels and we offer all of them here at Carbon Chimney Sweeps.
Chimney Inspection Level 1 – This type of inspection should happen annually. Its purpose is to look out for signs of excessive wear incorporated with a chimney cleaning. The chimney sweep looks at the interior and exteriors of the chimney to ensure there’s good airflow, there are no leaks, or any kind of damage. Creosote and soot are also removed during this stage.
Chimney Inspection Level 2 – Video equipment is involved in this level for closer analysis of your chimney. This comes after there are signs of risk during level one inspection. Also, its recommended after you have experienced an earthquake or a chimney fire. At this level, we will deeply access the interior parts of the chimney. Video will penetrate and capture the flue lining for any signs of damage that will require a fireplace repair or chimney repair.
Chimney Inspection Level 3 – This type of inspection is necessary if a level two inspection proves signs of more serious damages. Parts of the chimney or home will need to be removed during this stage.
To better protect your home, we advise on level-one chimney inspection annually and level two anytime you become suspicious of any kind of damage. Regular chimney inspection could go a long way in curbing any issues that may be catastrophic or hazardous to your home in the future.
We at Carbon Chimney Sweeps also take care of this problem for you. Bricks are used when making a firebox. Therefore, to know if there’s need for repair, just check the mortar. If you notice cracks or any kind of loosening with the bricks, then it’s time to bring in professionals. You may need to entirely replace or rebuild if the cracks are large enough.
This is one of the pivotal parts of a chimney. Replacing it may not be as cheap. There are different types of materials that liners are constructed from. Some are made of tile, some metal while others are cast-in-place. We deal with all the three here at Carbon Chimney Sweeps. Experts in fire protection advise on installing a metal liner. With cast-in-place on the other hand, there’s less accumulation in creosote as it enables clean burning of fire. Clay tile can last for as long as five decades if properly installed. Our chimney sweeps who are experts at flue relining will inspect your house, chimney and listen to your needs to give you the best advice on which option is right for you.
With a chimney that is relined, you may enjoy comfortable heating in your home devoid of risks of fire breakouts. You are also spared from having to endure harmful gas leaks.
For vent cleaning, there are signs to look for including:
