Our chimney service team diligently and efficiently cleans and repairs many chimneys every year. All service work is inspected upon completion to ensure safety and long-lasting results.
The Dangers of Creosote
Another primary reason for regular chimney cleaning is to prevent a toxic material called creosote. This is a chemical which forms as a direct result of the distillation of tar. It will eventually build upon the interior chimney wall and pose a risk for fires.
It is recommended that you get a professional to check to see if there is creosote buildup in your chimney, but if you feel compelled to check here is how to go about it. You may peek into the flue with a flashlight and scrape the flue wall with a plastic utensil. If upon your scraping you discover at least 1/8" of creosote, then it is time for a cleaning. Leave this to the professional chimney sweepers at Guaranteed Chimney of Boston. In addition to removing this potentially lethal substance, our service will also remove soot or any other material and objects that are deemed hazardous.
Chimney Repair & Maintenance
The interior of any chimney requires annual cleaning. However, it is not the only aspect that requires regular maintenance and repairs. Some components to keep in mind are:
- exterior masonry
All of these parts of your chimney need to be in good, working condition to maintain a safe home. Letting them fall under the radar could lead to potentially dangerous situations for you and your family. That is why it is important to have all aspects of your chimney regularly inspected.
Not only is the outside structure of your chimney important, but the inside part of the chimney that can be accessed from inside the home is just as important. This area is known as the smoke chamber and needs to be regularly cleaned and inspected. The smoke chamber is located just above the damper. It can cause serious harm to your home and family if it is not repaired, cleaned and inspected. Guaranteed Chimney of New England performs quality repair work on smoke chambers for residents in the Boston area.

Our service professionals can repair the chimney crown with new cement and sealers to prevent further leakage.

Fireplace Damper Services
Many homeowners have a metal-to-metal sealed fireplace damper which by today’s standards is not very efficient in terms of heating.

Allow the pros at Guaranteed Chimney to inspect your damper and ensure your chimney is is great working condition.
