Chimney Kkrrikitt's Smokes
The few days before Christmas my son in law went to our cabin. Only to find that our chimminey flute was completely clogged. We called many companies, some wanting $225.00 travel time. After many calls, we contacted Chimney Kkrrikitt's, OMG for the mountain area to speak to a professional and well educated company is a miracle. This company explained our problem and was out to our home within 48 hours. It reminded me of the "old fashion" work ethic. I highly recommend this company for service and repairs. Not to mention, his fee for the service call and the repair was a fraction of the other companies travel time fee. You need a polite, professional, speedy service....call Chimeny KKrrikitt's. Your faith in old fashion business will return.
Tips & Advices
As part of regular home maintenance, you can look for signs up build-up or debris accumulating in a fireplace. n addition to practicing safe wood burning and cleaning the in-home structure, you can also use a flashlight on occasion to inspect for any obvious cracks or blockage. Strong smells emanating from the fireplace when not in use may be an indication of the need to consult with a professional who can handle the broader inspection and any major issues that arise from it.
It can be dangerous not to have your chimney inspected from the interior, since only a licensed professional can detect things like creosote build-up or a defective damper. Failing to address such issues can, at the very least, reduce the efficiency of airflow within your home, and at worst, lead to a fire.
Most inspectors are called chimney cleaning professionals these days, but the term chimney sweep traditionally refers to the person who evaluates the flue, damper and roof, and then cleans them from the inside. A certified chimney sweep will also inspect your fireplace and the room in which it operates, checking for any structural inefficiencies or signs of leakage. When looking to hire a chimney cleaner, it’s best to seek one who is certified by the CSIA or NCSG.
A chimney flue is essentially a duct that runs from the fireplace to the top of the chimney, helping convey the gas and heat out of the home. It must be properly sealed in order to protect the home and withstand the exhaust that passes through.
The damper is the device that seals the chimney shut when it is not in use. It usually operates as a small flap inside the flue, helping retain warm air and insulate the home, even when there is no fire going.
