Benefits of Hiring Professional Chimney Sweep Pensacola

There are many benefits that come with hiring a professional chimney sweep. Regular cleanings improve the efficiency of your chimney system, prevent chimney fires, odors, and smoke problems, and can identify potential hazards before they cause harm to your home. Sootaway of Pensacola provides the following benefits with our services.

Protect Your Home

Sootaway takes the safety of you, your family, and your home very seriously. Through regular cleanings, inspections, and repairs, rest assured that our chimney technicians will keep your chimney working safely.

The National Fire Prevention Association recommends having your chimney cleaned at least once a year or when buildup reaches 1/8th of an inch. Any more buildup puts your chimney at risk of catching fire, which could be devastating for you and your home. 

The chimney sweeps at Sootaway will inspect and clean your chimney, clear away any flammable debris such as creosote, and make any necessary repairs. This regular maintenance will protect your home by preventing chimney fires.

Breathe Better Air

Any blockage in your chimney will negatively affect the air quality in your home or building. When blockages occur, smoke is unable to escape through the chimney and will fill the room. Sooty buildup, birds’ nests, leaves, and animals can all cause blockages. A Sootaway chimney sweep will perform an inspection and cleaning, and will remove any debris to ensure that smoke can be properly vented through the chimney.

Is it Time to Replace Your Chimney Liner?

The Importance of the Flue Liner The flue liner, also referred to as the chimney liner, is a vital element of any chimney system. In fact, they are one of the most important reasons annual chimney inspections are recommended. What makes a flue liner so important? The liner creates a barrier between the flue and the chimney walls. When working correctly, flue liners protect your chimney from extremely high temperatures. Without a liner, your home is at a much higher risk of fires. Not only do flue liners protect the inside of your chimney, they also protect the outside. Bricks and other materials used to build chimneys can weaken over time due to high heat and soot buildup. Damaged chimneys are at a higher risk of chimney fires and can accumulate even more damage if not taken care of. Because there are so many factors that can damage your chimney, it is vital that you have your chimney...

The Menace of Leaks

Recently noticed water around your fireplace, chimney, or surrounding area? You probably have a leaking chimney on your hands, which can be a bump in the road for you and the comfort of your home and everyday life. However, A leaking chimney does not always manifest itself in obvious ways.

What type of mortar should I use?

Contrary to popular belief, there's not just one type of mortar for chimneys. The most common type (as well as the tone of the oldest) being fireclay mortar which is a normal cement mortar mixed with dried organic material. Followed up in popularity by a refractory mortar that takes the old firebrick motor and adds calcium aluminate and sand. This makes it last longer as well as being able to stand higher temperatures. Any new chimney build uses refractory mortar, the question then stands which refractory motor would you use, hydraulic setting mortar or air-drying mortar?

Chimney Sweeping History

1600's - 1800's Chimney sweeping is a practice that dates as far back as the early 1600’s. Chimney sweeping and maintenance became in high demand more than ever after The Great Fire of London in 1666 due to more regulations being put into place. One of which was having narrower chimneys which launched the mass usage of children in chimney sweeping.  Poor parents usually sold their kids to a master sweeper and became “apprentices”. Child apprentices were forced to be inside and clean chimneys as narrow as 19”.  Children were forced to start as young as four years old with the ideal age being six years old. The use of children in chimney sweeping was prohibited in 1875 after a child got trapped in a chimney and died. This started the use of cleaning devices instead of people. The devices were rudimentary with the most complex one being a heavy lead or iron ball tied to a rope that they...
