We use specialized tools to make sure that every bit of creosote is removed from the interior walls of your chimney, to eliminate the risk for chimney fires.

After your chimney has been swept, we then take a close look at the exterior and interior of your chimney in our inspection service. We will check to make sure no debris is blocking your chimney. This ensures you will not have carbon monoxide forced back into your home. We will also examine your liner and other important components of your chimney to make sure there is no damage present.

According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), water is the greatest enemy of masonry chimneys. This is because of the amount of damage and deterioration it can do to the bricks and mortar joints. If this type of damage is neglected, it can jeopardize the structure of your chimney. All Seasons Chimney specializes in both repairing and preventing leaky chimneys. Our chimney technicians have been trained in masonry repair. One of these is tuckpointing. This will restore the structural soundness of your chimney. In addition, it keeps water from rain, ice, and snow out of your home. To prevent water leaks, we offer several different chimney maintenance services. These include flashing repair and construction, as well as waterproofing.

SWEEPING AND INSPECTION

Ensure your fireplace and chimney system is working as safely and efficiently as possible! The CSIA and other national fire safety organizations recommend having your chimney professionally swept and inspected at least once a year. Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps will take the time to make sure every hazard, such as creosote deposits and flue blockages, is removed from your chimney. We will also check for any other types of damage that could cause your chimney to be unsafe to use.

DRYER VENT CLEANING

Unfortunately, many homeowners forget to have their dryer vent system professionally cleaned every year. This is because they do not realize how much of a fire hazard a clogged dryer vent can be. Thousands of fires are caused every year by dirty dryer vents. These fires lead to deaths, injuries, and property damage. You can trust All Seasons Chimney to remove all of the lint that has accumulated inside the vent. Not only does this service reduce your risk of an accidental dryer fire, but it also helps your dryer work more efficiently. This saves both money and energy!
