When firing up their fireplaces for the long, cold winter season, many homeowners in McLean, VA, and surrounding NE Virginia communities don't realize the hidden dangers lingering inside the chimney.
Often left over from the previous fire season, hardened or glazed creosote is the most significant danger without regular chimney cleaning. Creosote is a tar-like, highly flammable substance. A spark from a hot ember or even intense heat (spontaneous combustion) in the flue can ignite the creosote. Fairfax County Fire/Rescue and other agencies across northeast VA respond to hundreds of house fires annually, citing failure to sweep the chimney as a cause.
In addition, leaves, twigs, snakes, raccoons, frozen squirrels, and other pests can clog the flue pipe. This can cause the chimney to huff and puff irritating smoke, poisonous carbon monoxide fumes, and other harmful contaminants into your home, severely reducing indoor air quality.
Our Certified Chimney Professionals® have the professional tools, equipment, and supplies, to meticulously clean your chimney, removing all creosote deposits, corrosive residues, pests, and nests blocking the flue.
Do you know whether your chimney, fireplace, and other heating appliances are not a fire or health hazard? There is only one way to find out, and that's with a professional chimney inspection. Unfortunately, not all homeowners have their chimneys inspected as often as they should. As a result, spalling brick from the continuous freeze-thaw cycle, followed by frequent rain and humid summers, can severely damage the masonry chimney over time.
CSIA-Certified for all three NFPA inspections, Bethesda Chimney is helping homeowners in Tysons Corner, VA, and nearby towns minimize future repairs, avoiding a costlier chimney rebuild.
Custom Chimney Cap
Rain, animals, and debris will easily access your chimney and home without a properly fitted cap. In addition, its location at the top of the chimney makes it difficult for folks to know that the chimney cap is loose, damaged, or non-existent.
We fabricate custom chimney caps in our Bethesda Chimney shop. We measure to fit the precise dimensions of your chimney, protecting the crown surface as well. Its durability will withstand seasonal weather changes, but more importantly, it will help protect your chimney from water damage and dangerous flue obstructions. It features a durable wire mesh screen to keep pesky critters out of the flue, while a spark arrestor keeps hot embers off the roof. Its beautiful hip and ridge style design will also enhance your chimney's appearance.
