Why Call a Chimney Sweep in Lynn MA?

In Lynn MA The most prominent form of heat comes from furnaces, and boilers. Most of these are oil fired. Oil soot can accumulate within the chimney which can decrease your chimneys venting capabilities which then makes your heating appliance work harder, and decreases the efficiency of your furnace. This can cause you to consume more oil, and who can afford that at $4.00 a gallon? Oil soot is highly acidic, and also highly corrosive, and can cause extensive damage to the inside of your chimney thus decreasing the life of your chimney. Having your chimney swept annually removes this acidic soot, and prolongs the life of your chimney.

This is also true of Gas fired furnaces as well. Gas vapors are hydrochloric acid in nature which is also corrosive to the inside of your chimney. the vapor literally soaks the inside of your chimney which softens mortar joints, and causes bricks to spall. All of this can eventually lead to bricks rotting right through allowing Carbon Monoxide into your house.

For these reasons it is imperative to have your chimney inspected annually, and have it swept as needed.

Chimney Sweep Lynn MA: Maintenance

There are other preventative maintenance measures which can be taken to reduce the damage incurred by the abusive nature of what a chimney must endure.

  • Have a chimney cap on top of your chimney. This will keep any additional water, and animals out of your chimney.
  • Ensure that your chimney has a proper liner. A liner is an added barrier which contains the flue gasses and allows them to exit the chimney safely. They are commonly made out of Terra Cotta clay tiles, or Stainless Steel.

If you have both a cap and a good liner then you are covered for the most part. That is a good start to reducing repair costs, and allowing your chimney to safely vent the flue gasses out of the house.

The only other big concerns are the weather beating up the exterior of the chimney. Rain and snow can cause damage to the outside of the chimney. The freeze thaw can slowly deteriorate the chimney. As water freezes it expands.. If the are any small cracks they can be made bigger as the water get into them then freezes and expands. This can be remedied by either replacing the mortar between the bricks, or do a rebuild of the entire chimney. Then to spray down the chimney with a waterproofing agent.

In my 10 years as a chimney sweep these are the most common problems I have found in the city of Lynn MA.
