The fireplace in your Milwaukee County home has a presence. Once lit, the appeal is realized well beyond its emanating heat and soothing flames.
It creates an haven of comfort. A gathering place for friends and family. A resting spot where the cold outside is forgotten amid warmth, crackles and glow.
What could possibly disrupt these restful moments? Try a creosote fire, or even people getting queasy from carbon monoxide or mold. A fireplace in need of cleaning or repairs can, unfortunately, pose hazards to those enjoying it in Milwaukee County.
Don’t let an unexpected, unwelcome occasion ruin a relaxing afternoon by your fireplace, or worse. Quality Fireplace is your go-to resource for fireplace inspection and service, to ensure that it provides you nothing but pleasure.
How do you know if your fireplace needs examination and possibly repairs? Cracks in brick or mortar are often evidence. A fireplace examination will likely find a moisture source behind the cracks. Excessive moisture can grow mildew, a known health hazard.
As importantly, a fireplace inspection will identify buildup of flammable creosote, which can ignite suddenly into a raging, destructive inferno. At the same time, obstructions or blockages that might trap carbon monoxide fumes are spotted and removed during the inspection.
Fireplace service often involves cleaning to remove creosote. Common repairs are tuckpointing on masonry, new flashing where the chimney meets the roof, or relining the chimney passage. A rusted metal cap atop a prefab chimney might be replaced. All aim to stop access, whether by damaging water or nesting animals.
