Chimney sweep is needed to remove creosote deposits and other debris from chimneys and vents. Creosote buildup in chimneys can lead to chimney fires or flue blockages.
During a chimney fire temperatures inside the chimney often exceed 2000 degrees and this can destroy your chimney and may set your house on fire.
In the event of a Flue Blockage which may be caused by creosote or other debris such as animal nesting, dangerous fumes can be forced into your home.
When first moving into a home, or before using a chimney or fireplace for an extended period of time, it is crucial to have a complete Chimney cleaning and inspection prior to lighting the first fire of the season. Failing to do so can put a house and even an entire family at risk and can cost much more than a simple chimney cleaning.
Chimney sweep is a vital service to protect the health and safety of your family and home. All chimneys, including the chimney for your furnace, should be inspected annually with cleaning performed as needed. The Chimney safety Institute of America and the National Fire Protection Association say you should have your chimney and fireplace cleaned and inspected once a year or more depending on use.
Chimney inspections and cleaning help prevent costly and damaging chimney fires!
ATLANTA CHIMNEY CAP INSTALLATION AND REPAIR
THE BENEFITS OF A CHIMNEY CAP:
Keep out rain, sleet, and snow.
Keep out animals and birds.
Keep out leaves, twigs, and other debris which could lead to a blockage or chimney fire.
Keep sparks from leaving the chimney and igniting nearby combustibles.
Help eliminate wind induced downdrafts.
Imagine how much water would come into your home during a rainstorm if you had a hole in your roof twelve inches square? Chimney flues may be even larger than that, so where does all the water go? It runs down the chimney and seeps into bricks and mortar, settling behind the firebricks. There is little air circulation in the chimney (unless your using it) and no sunlight, so the inside of the chimney stays wet long after the rain stops. This moisture erodes the mortar joints and weakens the brick. Add to this a freeze/thaw cycle during the cold months, and you have all the ingredients for a deteriorating chimney.
Take our word for it: even though you can't see the damage happening, it's there, slowly deteriorating your beautiful fireplace and chimney. This is a particularly important consideration if you have a metal firebox incorporating a metal damper and smoke shelf. All fireplace dampers made of metal are subject to this deterioration as the water mixes with creosote and mild acids are formed. Even chimneys serving woodstoves are in need of a cover..
It has been said a chimney without a cap is like a house without a roof.
Possible Problems Include:
CREOSOTE - Smoke goes up your chimney and creosote clings to the walls. It is highly flammable and causes chimney fires.
OBSTRUCTIONS - Bird nesting, debris, leaves, and excessive creosote will create a blockage, causing your chimney to back smoke.
CHIMNEY ODORS - A dirty chimney combined with rain and humidity can leave an undesirable odor.
DETERIORATION - Loose bricks, large cracks, and holes can be symptomatic of major problems and the integrity of the fireplace.
NO CHIMNEY CAP - Without protection, it is an open hole to the environment.
Atlanta Chimney Cleaning / Sweep Process :
We start the chimney cleaning process by performing an initial inspection to the chimney in order to decide what will be the best approach.
We use brushes and extendable rods to sweep the flue, hand brushes for the firebox and smoke chamber, and a vacuum with a triple layer HEPA filter to control dust, to Guarantee no mess!
Chimney Cleaning Atlanta GA sweeps the inside of your chimney, from the firebox floor all the way to the chimney top. Than we change the direction of the rotor brush and run the brushes back down in to the fireplace. We repeat this process as needed.
Finalizing the chimney sweep is a post inspection of the chimney.

If you see any of the following, it is time to have your chimney cleaned. There is soot dripping into your fireplace, signs of tar build-up, a strong odor coming from your fireplace or stove, reduced draft causing smoke to back up into your home, a critter has made a home in your system, or you just purchased your home and the previous owners could not tell you when it was last serviced.
How often do I need my chimney swept?
All working systems should be inspected and cleaned at least once a year no matter what they are venting. Systems venting wood burning appliances or stoves need to be cleaned more frequently as they create a greater creosote build-up.
Chimney caps are made from a variety of materials. The most common are galvanized, stainless steel, and copper. Caps made of stainless steel and copper will last longer than those made of regular galvanized metal and normally carry an extended warranty. Spending a little extra for a good quality chimney cap will be money well spent and there will be no danger of rust staining the chimney
