Maintaining a safe, functional chimney all year round is important for any homeowner. The seasons can be tough on your chimney so it is important that homeowners take action to keep their chimney safe from the weather conditions. Exposure to conditions like wind, humidity, and rain can impact the way your chimney functions and looks. One of the most common conditions that homeowners will experience in the spring is rain (moisture). Exposure to moisture, especially for long periods of time, can result in chimney damage.
Common Chimney Problems
- Leaking: A leaking chimney is not conducive to a warm, comfortable fire. If you notice a draft or a leak in the chimney, you should contact Advanced Chimney Sweeps. Our team at Advanced Chimney Sweeps can carefully inspect your chimney for any signs of damage and offer a treatment plan to restore your chimney.
- Rust: When the chimney is constantly exposed to moisture that does not dry properly, it may lead to rust. Rust can occur on any metal surfaces in or around your chimney. Rust may be present in the chimney flue or firebox, so be sure to check those places when looking for rust.
- Creosote Buildup: Creosote buildup can occur when the chimney is overexposed to moisture. Creosote can affect the safety of you and your home. Creosote is one of the leading causes of chimney fires. It is important that creosote is properly removed from the chimney flue.
