Unpleasant Chimney Smells
Smells emanating from your chimney can be a sign of trouble. Our qualified technicians are adept at resolving odor problems, most of which are caused by a combination of elementary chimney deficiencies. Our first step in the repair process is sending a technician to trace the source of the odor. Creosote buildups and draft problems are two of the most common causes of chimney odors. The Fireplace Doctor technicians are trained to solve your Daytona Beach chimney odor problems and help prevent them from happening again in the future.
When theyre looking for places to settle down, animals often choose the inside of a chimney because of its warmth and protection from the elements. We use a humane process to remove animals without harming them. To make sure no debris is left behind to cause further damage, the technician will clean the chimney and the area around the fireplace.
Masonry and Brick
Masonry chimneys are constantly exposed to rain, hail, sleet, snow and other harsh weather conditions, so signs of deterioration are to be expected over time. If your bricks are cracked or missing they could potentially allow water, insects, or cold drafts into your house, often creating more damage. So once you begin to notice the signs of deterioration, its important for you to have these problems fixed quickly. Weve trained all of our Daytona Beach chimney technicians to be able to rebuild, or repair your chimney completely, and theyve also all been trained to use a process called tuck pointing to replace missing mortar in between cracks in your bricks. They also apply a material called ChimneySaver, which is a very strong water repellant, and it will help you save heaps of money by avoiding costly repairs.
Preventative Maintenance Information
Most every chimney weve seen that has significant problems with it, could have been prevented early on if they used protective devices and standard maintenance. Many of our services here at The Fireplace Doctor of Daytona Beach are specifically used to help prevent damage from ever happening to your chimney. Any one of our technicians can effectively prevent water leaks, and animal infestations by using a lock-top damper onto your chimney top. Also, there are Daytona Beach waterproofing agents that we can apply to different parts of your chimney, ultimately stopping water from entering your home. We have trained all of our Daytona Beach chimney technicians to also use a complex waterproof flashing system that completely seals all of the cracks at the roof and near the base of the chimney.
