Chimney Sweep Services for Leesburg, VA

Our technicians work safely and quickly to rid your chimney flue of soot and flammable creosote. A Chimney Expert’s main objective is keeping you, your family, and your home safe. Once the flue has been swept, we perform a second safety inspection, which will identify any damages and/or deterioration inside the chimney flue. If your home is older than 30 years, we suggest that you consider updating your chimney’s flue liner and damper system and ensure that the exterior components (crown, rake, flashing) are all in good order. The freeze/thaw cycle is damaging to any chimney. If there are cracks in the crown and rain, sleet, or snow freeze in those cracks, the cracks expand causing further damage and thus higher repair bills. Our technicians’ final inspections cover not only the exterior components of the chimney system but the interior as well. These safety inspections not only cover wood-burning or gas-burning fireplaces, but they cover your furnace and hot water/heater chimney flues also. We cover it all … gas, oil, and/or coal-burning chimney flues. Carbon Monoxide is silent and deadly.

Most people don’t think about their chimney until a problem arises (e.g., water inside the fireplace/wall/ceiling, strong offensive odors, and/or birds, squirrels, etc., using the chimney to nest and raise their young). But, the professionals at A Chimney Expert can solve all your issues in addition to removing the build-up of wood ash and/or flammable creosote. Creosote is the residue left over from burning wood, which can be harmful to you and your family if neglected for too long. Not only can the build-up of creosote be a fire hazard, but it also causes health issues. Exposure to creosote over a long period of time can cause itchy eyes, an irritated throat, as well as burning, red, swelling or irritated skin. Don’t let creosote build-up in your chimney and have the chimney inspected and swept after the burning season ends. Call the chimney professionals at A Chimney Expert.
