Fireplace Brick Repairs Bucks County, PA and Montgomery County, PA
Here on the eastern seaboard, we face the winter storms that bring ice, snow, and freezing temperatures for days or weeks on end. Such weather is a recipe for decay on old mortar joints on unprotected chimneys and fireplaces. We are trained to handle tuck-pointing and brick repair, so we can grind out the mortar joints of decaying brick fireplaces and then build those fireplaces back to the way they should be. Tuckpointing and masonry repair should be carefully considered from the inside out. What we can see on a chimney by simply walking around it is not the complete picture. The interior may be degraded and allow the contents of the fireplace or boiler exhaust to seep into the attic space and thence into the home air supply and poison the occupants. That is why every Midtown Chimney Sweeps van in the greater Warrington and Bucks County area and Montgomery County area has a live scan video camera on board.
Dryer Vent Cleaning near Warrington, PA
Clothes dryer vents need cleaning too, along with chimneys. Dryer vents can become slightly clogged with lint, pet hair, debris from the clothes drying process. If not inspected annually, and removed when necessary, this can put back pressure on the clothes dryer fan motor. This increases the heat of the electric fan motor, and if not taken care of, a structure fire may result. Thousands of domestic fires occur each year in America alone due to lack of maintenance for dryer vents.
Why is chimney relining important, and how do I know if my chimney needs to be relined? First of all, the only way you could know if your chimney needs to be worked on or have repairs done to it is by knowing its current condition. While there may me several ways to diagnose a chimney, like reading online articles and comparing your flue to “that one in the picture” the other more traditional method is by having a professional chimney inspector out to your home to examine it. Fireplace and chimney and flue inspections should be done by a Certified Chimney Professional or someone with a certification that verifies a base line of knowledge about the chimney system and how it functions and what to look for. Once you determine that your chimney is in fact inspected, you will have a written or digital report of the condition of the chimney. From that point forward, you may compare repair methods. Some masonry flues may be repaired with Heatshield, a slip cast product that applies a layer of ceramic cement on the inside walls of the flue. The other methods include stainless steel liners. Your Midtown Chimney Sweeps technician in Bucks County, PA will be able to help you determine the best way forward with the brick and masonry chimney repairs.
