If you heat with your wood burning fireplace or wood stove, you can protect your property and family by having a Element Hearth and Home professional perform a Level 2 Chimney Inspection and a chimney sweep at least annually to ensure your fireplace and chimney system is safe for regular use.
Wood burning fireplace and chimney buildup usually comes in 2 forms, a light dusty soot or a tarry, lumpy residue called creosote. Creosote is caused by incomplete combustion of wood that comes from burning wet wood or a soft wood like pine. This creosote can build up in chimneys and ignite causing a chimney fire. For your reference, The U.S. Fire Administration offers a series of videos showing how to safely build and tend a fire.
We make respect and safety our number one priority every time. Upon arrival to your home, our wood burning fireplace and chimney sweep professionals will treat you and your home with the utmost care and appreciation.
Our inspection and cleaning process is one of the most versatile in the markets today. We offer a complete Level 2 Inspection that always comes with a full chimney sweep or chimney cleaning so that we can properly inspect for any damage. Any damage or issues we find during the inspection is then documented and compiled in a detailed report that you can keep for your records. This means, once your chimney is free of creosote or any other buildup, you get a complete video inspection of the inside of your chimney flue. This makes you fully aware of any cracks or gaps that could pose as potential fire hazards while operating your wood burning fireplace.
Most traditional brick-and-mortar wood burning fireplaces were built with clay flue tile to serve as the venting for all of the dangerous by-products being released when your fireplace is being used. Generally speaking, these are sections of 2 foot lengths that get stacked on top of one another prior to the mason constructing the brick work for the chimney structure. These 2 foot sections of clay tile are mortared together with a high heat refractory cement or fireplace mortar to ensure all of the heat exhaust from your fireplace is being contained. Overtime, general wear and tear, weather, condensation, a foundation shifting, or even chimney fires could have caused this clay to either crack or the mortar joints in between the clay to deteriorate leaving large gaps. These cracks and gaps could cause severe damage to your home if left unattended.
"Dear potential Element Hearth & Home customer, we are writing this letter of recommendation with some very happy feelings. These guys did a fantastic job at our cabin this past July. We didn’t know anything about these guys before hiring them. We went ahead with them anyway to do the work because of their professional, courteous and prompt responses to our inquiries. Their estimate was fair and you will not find more dedicated hard working guys that just blew us away with their work ethic. No dragging the job out - they showed up when they said they would, they did the job the way we asked plus did extras. One of things that we appreciated the most was their FAST responses to our calls and e-mails. Their quality of workmanship is top notch!!! We highly recommend this company to any potential customer and especially cabin owners that do not always have the time or resources to do a complete background check on potential contractors with the out of town problems. You can hire these guys with ease of mind that the job will be completed on time! For the price proposed! And you will be very happy with the results, we sure are!"
