Few items are more iconic of a cozy home than smoke rising from a chimney. A roaring fire, a cup of cocoa, and a good book are a lovely way to enjoy your home during the colder months.
But the luxury of a fireplace comes with a need to be vigilant. Time and weather can wear chimneys down over time. When that happens, Best Handyman Boston is here to help.
Maintain & Inspect
According to The National Fire Protection Association, anyone with a fireplace and a chimney should plan on having the chimney inspected once a year. We’ll check for structural flaws and blockages.
Soot, animal nests, and other debris can cause a fire and carbon monoxide hazard if they’re left untended. That’s why you can count on us to sweep your chimney clean too, so you can safely enjoy your fireplace all winter long.
Crumbling chimneys need repointing. A broken chimney creates spaces where creosote can build up and hide. It only takes one stray spark to turn all that build-up into a deadly house fire.
Crumbling mortar is a progressive problem that won’t go away on its own. If you don’t get it addressed it will only get worse.
