Are you experiencing issues with your chimney? ARCO has extensive experience resolving even the most stubborn chimney problems. It is especially important to have your chimney inspected and serviced after a chimney fire. We work with insurance companies to get this damage approved.
Common Chimney Problems:
- Creosote Build Up:
Smoke goes up your chimney and creosote clings to the walls. It is flammable and can cause chimney fires or a blockage forcing smoke into your home.
- Glazed Creosote:
Burning wet wood is the main cause of this buildup. Highly flammable & should be cleaned immediately.
Animal nesting, debris, leaves, and excessive creosote will create a blockage causing your chimney to backdraft smoke and smell
- Chimney Odors:
A dirty chimney combined with cold, rain, or humidity can leave an undesirable odor to backdraft into home.
- Chimney Deterioration:
Loose bricks, missing mortar, or cracked crown can lead to major problems with the integrity of the fireplace.
- No Chimney Cap:
Without protection, it is an invitation for birds & other critters to nest. Also the rain can rust out your damper.
