The fireplace in your Milwaukee County home has a presence. Once the logs are glowing, the appeal is realized well beyond its emanating heat and soothing flames.
It creates an oasis 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 interrupt these peaceful moments? Try a creosote fire, or even people getting nauseous from carbon monoxide or mold. A fireplace in need of cleaning or repairs can, unfortunately, pose danger to those enjoying it in Milwaukee County.
Don’t let an unexpected, unwelcome occurrence ruin a relaxing afternoon by your fireplace, or worse. Quality Fireplace is your professional resource for fireplace inspection and service, to ensure that it provides you nothing but fun.
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 exposure a moisture source behind the cracks. Excessive moisture can grow mildew, a known health hazard.
As importantly, a fireplace examination 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 examination.
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 chase cover atop a prefab chimney might be replaced. All aim to stop access, whether by damaging water or nesting animals.
