Types of Chimney Emergencies
Here are a few instances where you’ll want to reach out to our professionals:
This toxic gas is odorless and invisible — yet deadly. If a problem with your chimney results in carbon monoxide entering your home, call us immediately!
“Puff back” is an indication there’s a block in your chimney system. Aside from containing carbon monoxide, this soot-created residue can also stain surfaces throughout your home.
A block or clog in the chimney will cause smoke to enter your home, devastating your environment as well as compromising your indoor air quality (IAQ) in the process. This could be caused by debris coming from the outside of the lining on the interior walls breaking apart from the chimney flue. If you suspect a blockage, make no hesitation in calling us so we can remove any objects and make necessary repairs.
Frequent use of your fireplace develops a layer of creosote (a tar-like combustible composite of fuel exhaust and moisture) on the chimney interior. This residue can cause a chimney fire, which results in cracks in the structure and poisonous fumes leaking into your home. Fires can damage bricks and mortar, as well.
After a bad storm, bricks can loosen on the chimney structure. Not only are falling bricks a hazard for those walking around on your property, missing bricks mean openings where rainwater can seep into your home. A loose brick can also make its way into the flue, causing a blockage. If you see any bricks that are out of place, you’ll want an expert to tend to your chimney as soon as possible.
