The build-up of soot and creosote in your fireplace is a very big problem and the reason why our customers come back every year is because they trust us. Whether you use a wood or gas fireplace, it still produces smoke, and sometimes foreign objects when used normally. Be sure to call All American Chimney for your chimney sweeps, repairing or replacing the chimneys and all other parts.
In fact, a compromised fireplace can lead to water leaks in your home, and if a leak is bedridden, your fireplace is vulnerable to both water damage and water as it is.
Normal wear and tear, which damages a fireplace shell during normal use, can also cause damage inside the fireplace.
A chimney damper controls the flow of smoke that rises from your fireplace and it is responsible for proper ventilation of your fireplace. So when a chimney damper becomes damaged or breaks completely, it dramatically impairs your ability to use your fireplace effectively.
