Does your house smell like smoke or do you have a foul smell coming from your fireplace?
If you answered yes, it could mean that your chimney is lined with creosote, the soot byproduct from burning wood. Decreased airflow from a build-up of soot will greatly impact the performance of your chimney and fireplace increasing your danger from fire and carbon monoxide. If you haven’t used a chimney sweep or had an inspection in over a year, you should do it now!

Why do we recommend an annual chimney inspection?
If it’s been a while since your last chimney cleaning and inspection, it is possible that you may have suffered damage to your system. The build up of soot in the chimney or flue can combust causing extreme temperatures within the flue that can damage brick, mortar and metal. Even if you aren’t a frequent user of your fireplace, an annual chimney inspection can be important to make sure that it is clean of animal nests, and is not in need of repair.
Feel the relief of having a professional service ensure your safety and to catch damage before it gets costly. Call us for your Chimney Sweep, Masonry Repair or Air Duct Cleaning for the Greater Portland Oregon areas, and we’ll be right over.
