Excessive chimney smoke can be caused by many things and is an easy sign that there is something not working properly with your chimney. Call the professionals at Central Masonry to get your chimney functioning properly again!
The NFPA recommends yearly chimney inspections to ensure that your chimney is working properly and keeping you and your home safe from a fire and dangerous fumes. Central Masonry offers complete chimney inspections complete with a video inspection available to you as well!
In addition to a yearly inspection, you should consider getting your chimney inspected if:
• You experience any unusual or sudden occurrence, such as a chimney fire, lightning strike, or earthquake
• You are about to purchase a home with an existing chimney
• You make any changes to a chimney or vent system, including replacement of connected appliances
• You are planning any major system repairs
In our 35+ years of experience, we find that, under normal burning conditions, a chimney should be cleaned after burning through two cords of wood or anually. While this is a good rule of thumb to follow, every chimney behaves differently. If you notice a problem with your chimney, contact us. We provide 24/7 emergency service. We will even inspect your chimney for you when we clean it so you will know that your chimney is as safe as it can be, when we leave.
