How often should you have your chimney serviced?
There are an estimated 25,000 chimney fires every year in the United States, causing upwards of $125 million in property damage and sometimes even resulting in injury or other tragedy. One of the most common causes of chimney fires is a build up of creosote. Creosote is a byproduct of wood burning that builds up inside your chimney. It actually contains tar, soot, and the carbonaceous chemical actually known as creosote – though the mixture of the three is referred to professionally as just “creosote.” The flammability of creosote is precisely why it is recommended to have your chimney swept at least twice per year when you are burning wood or bituminous housed coal and once per year when burning smokeless fuels. At Aardvark Air, we can ensure your chimney is safe and healthy for your home with a thorough chimney inspection, so you can know exactly what cleaning or repair services are needed. We’re not here to up-sell you—we’re just here to give you the peace of mind of knowing you can safely use your fireplace.
Our Professional Chimney Services

If there are cracks in your chimney or fireplace, our professional masons can make it like new again. We can repair, reconstruct, or totally replace your indoor fireplace, hearth, and chimney. We also perform tuckpointing, which is the process of removing damaged mortar and then regrouting with fresh mortar. If you are missing mortar, we can go right to the regrouting. This protects against water and other elemental damage as well as prevents corrosion of mortar joints. All in all, it re-stabilizes your chimney.
There are a variety of chimney repair options that we can apply if your chimney is in need.
Relining happens when chimney flue or liner start deteriorating, this creates a hazard to use your fireplace. Liners are an essential piece of the chimney puzzle because they channel heat and gases up through the top and block the heat from causing combustible materials around the chimney from catching fire.
If you are planning on using your fireplace this winter, or are going to be using a fireplace for the first time, an inspection and chimney inspection is probably necessary. Old homes mean old chimneys that may have dangerous buildup of ash and debris, not to mention animals that have found their way in.
We recommend having your chimney inspected once a year to ensure functionality, and the health and safety of your family. A reliable inspection by one of our expert chimney sweeps may reveal the need for chimney repair or cleaning. A clean chimney keeps everyone safe and warm.
