Sootaway Chimney Sweep Navarre knows that maintaining a fireplace and chimney is detrimental to protecting your home. When not properly maintained, a fireplace is one of the most dangerous areas in the house. What was supposed to be a warm, cozy room filled with the ambiance of a crackling wood fire, is now a hub for soot, harmful smoke, and fire hazards. We understand that chimney maintenance is overlooked, it is not a chore that needs to be done often. Our companies’ technicians are experienced, qualified, and insured to service your chimney. A professional chimney sweep can minimize the dangers of owning a fireplace and ensure your chimney is safe to use.
A fireplace is a direct link from inside your home to the outside of it. When you burn wood, the chimney allows smoke to exit the home. Smoke contains harmful compounds such as soot, ash, and carbon monoxide. When a chimney is not drafting properly, soot and carbon monoxide will not exit the home correctly.
Any blockage in your chimney will affect the air quality in your home or building. When there is no place for the smoke from the fire to escape, it will fill the home quickly. As you know, this is very unhealthy to breathe in. Sooty buildups are not the only blockages that can cause this to happen. Birds’ nests, leaves, and critters can also cause a blockage for the smoke. Hiring a chimney sweep to inspect your chimney will prevent this issue from happening and will ensure the smoke can escape your chimney properly.
It may seem like a slippery slope, but all these issues are a lot more common than you think! Water leaks and animals are some of the most common issues we find on inspection. The Chimney Safety Institute of America, or the CSIA, recommends at least one inspection a year for your home. If you are moving into a home or selling your home, you will need to have a level two inspection. There are three levels of inspection, and we offer them all! Level one is the most basic and common inspection and is most likely the one we will perform on your home. An inspection allows our technicians to get an in-depth look at your chimney and know exactly what is going on. After inspection, we provide a comprehensive report with before-and-after photos to show you exactly what services we performed and why.

We know that we are working inside your home, we want you to be able to trust our technicians. Which is why we are formal, polite, uniformed, and background checked prior to employment. A chimney sweep requires you to stand on the roof, use special tools and equipment, and stay safe all at the same time! Not only is it dangerous, but it is also extremely time-consuming. To clean a one-story chimney, it can take a professional up to three hours. An inexperienced homeowner is at risk for injury on their roof. We want to keep you safe and save you some of your valuable time. One thing our technicians have is a keen, experienced eye, which is what you need when performing an inspection. We can spot any possible issues that may cause damage to your chimney or put you at risk for a potential house fire. When you hire a chimney sweep to inspect your home annually, the primary purpose is to ensure there is no soot or creosote buildup present. The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends getting your chimney cleaned once just 1/8 of an inch of buildup is present. If your chimney has any thicker of a buildup, it is at risk for catching on fire.
