Chim Cheroo Chimney Service Inc is the premier chimney inspection and cleaning company in the Mansfield and North Central Ohio area. The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that you have your chimney cleaned at least on an annual basis. One reason for this is because when you burn wood, smoke is emitted, and that smoke contains water vapor and several chemicals which can be harmful if they are allowed back in your home. When smoke reaches the top of your chimney, the warm smoke condenses onto the chimney and forms creosote, which is a highly flammable substance which could cause a dangerous chimney fire. Cleaning the creosote out of your chimney is something that Chim Cheroo does well.We Do Competitor Matching - Mansfield OH - Chim Cheroo

Inspection

Chimney cleaning isn’t the only thing that Chim Cheroo does well. We also do a great job of inspection. We do all three levels of chimney inspection, so whether you are just having a routine inspection because you get them on an annual basis or if you suspect you’ve had a chimney fire or other chimney damage, we can take care of it. We have the equipment to do a Level Two Inspection and run a camera down your chimney and see things from a bird’s eye view. If you need some type of extensive repair project, we can take care of that as well.

Other Work

We can also take care of routine repairs for your chimney. We’ll take special care to look at your chimney cap and crown, and if we see cracks that indicate that leaks might start to occur, we’ll take care to either fix them or do a major rebuild of your chimney crown or suggest a new chimney cap if that’s the route that’s best for your chimney. Another area of potential leaks is your chimney flashing. The joint where your chimney meets your roof is especially susceptible to leaks, so flashings are placed over this area to keep the precipitation out. The problem is that these pieces of metal can blow up and loosen or become cracked or torn, and then the water can get in. If your flashing is in bad shape, we’ll take care of replacing it.

Have Your Chimney Restored Before the Snow Falls

Everything gets tougher in the winter. Just a simple trip to the store is more difficult when there’s a foot of snow in the driveway. You never know when your plans may change because there’s a storm brewing. So, if you know that if your chimney is in need of repair or restoration, you don’t want to wait until the snow to get it taken care of. You want to make sure that your chimney is up and running. This way you’ll be able to cozy down in front of a crackling fire when that snow hits! When there are repair jobs that need to be taken care of, Chim Cheroo Chimney Service is the place to call.

Have Your Chimney Restored Before the Snow Falls - Mansfield OH - Chim CherooWhy Repairs May Be Needed

Your chimney can need repairs for several reasons. When you burn a fire in your fireplace, the smoke carries chemicals into your chimney. These chemicals will condense on the cooler surface of the interior of your chimney. According to the Chimney Safety Institute of America, this buildup is extremely flammable! If you continue to burn fires when the buildup is thick, a chimney fire is a big possibility. If a chimney fire happens, you will definitely be looking at major restoration.

Another cause of repairs in your chimney is weather. There is no way that you can prevent precipitation hitting your chimney. This precipitation, in whatever form it may take, will eventually cause some problems for your chimney. Best Picks Reports states that snow, rain, or other forms of precipitation can cause leaks in the chimney itself. In addition, causing rust in different components of your chimney, such as damper or firebox assemblies. Also, when precipitation permeates the porous surface of your mortar or bricks and then freezes, it will expand and cause larger cracks to occur.

These are two reasons that your chimney might need repairs. Besides these, just plain time takes its toll on your chimney. Chimneys can actually start to lean over time, and you can also see other signs of deterioration. These include flaking of the mortar, or stains that run down your chimney. When you see these signs, you need to call in the troops to make some repairs.

Are the Repairs Necessary

If your chimney doesn’t look good, it can make your whole house look shabby. But, it isn’t only for cosmetic reasons that you’ll want to get your chimney restored. A chimney that is in disrepair can cause serious health risks. Not only can creosote build-up cause a fire, but cracks can cause a back-draft of toxic gases to filter back into your home instead of out your chimney. So, if you’re thinking that a shabby looking chimney isn’t enough incentive to have it repaired or restored, than think of these reasons, and give Chim Cheroo Chimney Service a call.

It won’t be long before the cold winter weather arrives. Consequently, by this that point it won’t be easy for professionals to come in and make the repairs that are needed in your chimney. If you need the repairs, call now! The CSIA certified professionals at Chim Cheroo will be there to investigate, advice, and repair – before the snow falls!
