Common Repair Concerns
If you are from Vaughan, there is no need for you to worry about your chimney. You can always trust MGG Chimney Sweep to handle all of your chimney maintenance concerns. The only thing you need to do is to give us a call once or twice a year for your regular chimney cleaning and W.E.T.T. inspection.
Our W.E.T.T. certified chimney experts can thoroughly clean your chimney and remove all deposits of creosote that have accumulated inside your chimney walls, and could be really hazardous. Creosote is flammable and is actually the leading cause of chimney fires. That’s why it is important that you ensure your chimney is free from creosote buildup, especially before the cold months arrive and you need to make use of your fireplace.
There may be cracks in the mortar and bricks, as well as in the crown, chimney cap, and liner that can all be signs of leaks and may require immediate repair. Fixing them as soon as possible can help prevent further deterioration. Remember that damages to your liner can also be dangerous because smoke, carbon monoxide, and all other combustion by-products can easily seep into your home through those gaps or cracks in the liner.
