Lafayette Chimney Sweep Services
We recommend annual chimney sweeping to keep your chimney clean and safe. Burning wood in the fireplace produces creosote, which builds up in the chimney over time. Creosote is highly flammable, corrosive, and responsible for numerous chimney fires across the country.
When you need chimney cleaning, hiring a certified professional is recommended. Our technicians are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America and have the knowledge and experience to clean your chimney and identify possible issues that could put your family at risk — issues you may not catch if you attempt to clean it yourself or hire an amateur.
During a chimney sweep, our professionals will remove the creosote, soot, and blockages from the flue lining, and clean out your firebox, damper, and smoke chamber.
Chimney and fireplace cleaning is a dirty job, but our experts promise to leave your home as clean as it was when we arrived.
Expert Chimney Inspections in Lafayette
Like cleaning, you should schedule an annual chimney inspection if you use your fireplace regularly. Routine chimney inspections allow you to catch minor issues like cracked bricks and mortar joints or obstructions that could impede your fireplace’s performance.
Additionally, if you move into a new home with a fireplace and chimney, it’s essential to hire a certified professional to inspect it and ensure it’s safe to use.
Finally, if you change your heating system, like going from a wood-burning fireplace to gas, or have experienced a chimney fire, it’s important to schedule an inspection.
At Chimney Solutions, our team is fully licensed, insured, and certified, and our work meets or exceeds industry standards for your safety.
Lafayette Chimney Repairs
The constant freeze/thaw cycle and exposure to extreme temperatures take a toll on your chimney. Whether it’s an unpleasant odor, poor ventilation, moisture, or cracked bricks or mortar joints, it’s wise to take care of chimney repairs as soon as possible before they escalate and put your family at risk.
Like chimney cleaning and inspections, it’s essential to trust your chimney repairs to certified professionals. Educated technicians know how to ensure proper venting and are up-to-date on the latest building codes and regulations.
It’s not always apparent when you need chimney repairs, but the most common signs are:
- Loose bricks
- Broken masonry on the chimney exterior
- Broken clay or brick in the fireplace
- White stains on the chimney’s exterior
- Cracked chimney crown
If an inspection turns up damage, we have various ways to fix it, like tuck-pointing, chimney crown repair, liner replacement, cap replacement, flashing replacement, and more.
Chimney Solutions is the trusted local source in Lafayette for minor chimney repairs to complete rebuilds.
Chimney Liner Repair
Your chimney liner is the first line of defense, protecting your home’s combustible materials from excessive temperatures and the chimney from corrosive creosote. The liner also makes it easier for toxic gases and smoke to ventilate out of the house, keeping your family safe.
Because it’s exposed to high heat, the liner can become damaged or wear out. Common signs that you need chimney liner repair or replacement include:
- Visible damage like cracks or gaps
- Buildup of creosote
- Frequent downdrafts and poor ventilation
Besides chimney repairs, you can count on us for expert liner repair and replacement.
Lafayette Chimney Cap Installation
Do you need a chimney cap? Yes, and here’s why!
Installing a chimney cap is a cost-effective way to protect your chimney from debris, animal infestation, leaves, branches, and garbage from getting in and causing an obstruction.
Chimney caps guard against sparks and embers flying out, landing on your roof, and potentially starting a fire.
Lastly, water is the number one threat to your chimney, and installing a cap can prevent water from getting in, causing the bricks and mortar joints to deteriorate and metal components like the damper to rust.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
If you’re like most homeowners, you rarely think about cleaning your dryer vent. And with so many other household chores to tackle, we don’t blame you. However, a dirty vent reduces your dryer’s efficiency and could cause a fire. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, an estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires occur every year.
Hiring a professional is better for cleaning your dryer vents, not only because it’s a messy job, but because some venting systems are a challenge to clean, and require special tools.
Our certified professionals have the training, experience, and equipment to thoroughly clean your dryer vents to keep your family and home safe.
