Chimney and Fireplace Inspections
The National Fire Protection Association recommends having your fireplace and chimney inspected once per year to ensure that there are no dangerous combustible deposits and debris inside that may catch fire. Fireplaces and chimneys are very complicated architectural components of the home that require the eye of a professional. Capitol Chimney will conduct a thorough inspection that is tailored to your unique type of chimney and fireplace, and the specific problem you are having. We will take detailed notes and discuss all options to repair and replace parts of your chimney with you.
Chimney Cleaning and Sweeping
The cold winter months are great for snuggling up to a nice warm crackling fire. But after a period of time, your chimney needs to be cleared of any creosote, soot, and ash that may have built up inside during the season you use your fireplace the most. Capitol Chimney has been cleaning chimneys and fireplaces for over ten years, so you can trust that we have all of the proper tools and professional products needed to get the job done. We will leave your home as clean as when we got there, and we will leave your chimney and fireplace even cleaner.
Chimney and Fireplace Repairs
From minor mishaps to serious problems, our team knows how to fix your chimney and fireplace. If we have conducted an inspection and find problems with the masonry, the damper, the chimney cap, or any other part of your chimney or fireplace, we will go over those issues with you and work to fix the problem as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. We have seen it all — from broken or incorrect assemblies that cause draft problems, to water-damaged flue liners, to poorly sealed chimney caps that allow animals into the smoke chamber. And we can fix it all.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
The lint that clogs a tumble dryer’s vent can be a serious fire hazard, potentially damaging your home and harming your loved ones. Fortunately, dryer vents are easily cleaned by experienced professionals like Capitol Chimney. We will come and inspect the vent and the exhaust box on the exterior of the home, checking for clogging and damage. Then, we will remove the lint and any other debris from the vent and install animal guards to protect your home.
Your fireplace is the focal point of your living room and a wonderful place for you and your family to gather around. We know how important fire safety is to any homeowner — that is why we do this job! Capitol Chimney can install metal screens or glass doors that are a great option if you have children. We can provide safe and efficient alternatives to regular wood-burning fireplaces, such as gas logs and linear burners. We also guarantee that your furniture and belongings will be covered or moved to protect them from any dirt during the fireplace service. Our goal is that by the end of the day, your house looks as if we were never inside it. And your fireplace will be in perfect condition too.
