If the flue isn’t maintained regularly, it can cause the air passage through the chimney to be reduced causing smoke and poisonous carbon monoxide to spill into your home. Typically the air passage becoming blocked is caused by improper burning; whether it is from burning wood that is too green, too dry, or simply improper use of the fireplace from lack of familiarity of the system.
When you call our service department, we will ask you for information about the history of the fireplace, any issues that you may be having, and accessibility of the chimney. We can usually give a ballpark estimate over the phone.
Our main goal is to make you as a homeowner safe, and knowledgeable on your system. Read our FAQs about chimney cleaning for answers to your questions, including what to expect during a cleaning and how to prepare.
In addition to cleaning the inside of your chimney, Ledegar also provides chimney tuck pointing services. During your inspection, any issues with your chimney’s exterior will be discussed as well as recommendations made.
