The fireplace in your Waukesha County residence has a presence. Once the logs are glowing, the effect goes 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 disrupt these peaceful moments? Try a creosote fire, or even people getting ill from carbon monoxide or mold. A fireplace in need of cleaning or repairs can, unfortunately, pose hazards to those enjoying it in Waukesha County.
Don’t let an unexpected, unwelcome incident 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 fun.
How do you know if your fireplace needs examination and possibly repairs? Cracks in brick or mortar are often evidence. A fireplace inspection 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 burst into a raging, destructive inferno. At the same time, obstacles 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 metal cap atop a prefab chimney might be replaced. All aim to stop infiltration, whether by damaging water or nesting animals.
