Expert Chimney Sweeping in South Snohomish & North King Counties
A dirty chimney is a dangerous thing. When sooty build-up becomes too high, chimney fires can be the result, burning at temperatures approaching 2000 degrees. Chimney fires can melt mortar, crack tiles, cause liners to collapse and damage the outer masonry material, all of which provide a pathway for flames to reach the combustible wood frame of the house – an extremely dangerous situation.
The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends a chimney inspection once a year, stating that open masonry fireplaces should be cleaned at 1/8 of sooty build-up (sooner if there is any glaze present), and that factory-built fireplaces should be cleaned when any appreciable build-up occurs. If you use your fireplace frequently and haven’t had your chimney cleaned for several years, you’re taking a risk with the safety of your home and family.

Chimney Repair and Masonry Work
If you’ve had a chimney fire, or your chimney or fireplace has been damaged by an accident, don’t use it until you’ve had it inspected and, if necessary, repaired. Chimney repair is also common when the chimney is old and beginning to come apart, or when age has caused it to lose its beauty and it begins to detract from the beauty of the home. If any of these is the case in your home, it’s probably time to call a reliable, established masonry contractor with a good reputation.
A licensed masonry contractor, Powers Chimney & Masonry provides quality chimney and fireplace construction and repair, and brickwork and stonework construction and repair (including tuckpointing) for BBQs, patios or any other area of your home.
