Why Does My Chimney Need Annual Cleaning?
Every time you burn a fire in your fireplace, combustible by-products are created, known as creosote and soot. As the fire burns, these substances cling to your chimney lining, and with continued use, the buildup inside your chimney grows. Since these by-products are combustible, they increase the risk of fire. Hot embers from fires can come into contact with the buildup in your chimney and start a potentially destructive fire. An accumulation of creosote and soot is one of the leading causes of chimney fires that spread into house fires. For this reason, it’s important that your chimney is cleaned annually, and J.H. Kinard is the team for the job. We’ll thoroughly clean your chimney and flue lining of dangerous deposits of creosote and soot, as well as other potential blockages. After a chimney cleaning by our team, you’ll feel confident in safely using your fireplace for the winter season.
Chimney Repair & Replacement
The structure of your chimney is also vital to its safe operation. Damage to your chimney can occur due to many reasons, but harsh weather and exposure to too much rainwater are primarily the cause. If you catch the problem early, a simple repair is often enough to get your chimney back in shape. However, sometimes, a total replacement is needed if the damage is significant. J.H. Kinard is able to provide both chimney repairs and replacement at your home in Fayetteville, GA. Please reach out to us if you’re concerned the structure of your chimney is compromised.
