As a family-run chimney company serving along the Hudson River and the surrounding areas, the most important thing to us is client safety. We know there are risks involved with chimneys and fireplaces, but we don’t want our clients to have to worry about them.

That’s why we provide such meticulous inspections and repairs. After all, what’s more important than the safety and comfort of the families in our communities? If you ask us, the answer is nothing.

But what’s one thing that can seriously compromise your safety? A damaged smoke chamber.

What’s A Smoke Chamber & What Kinds Of Problems Can A Damaged Smoke Chamber Cause?

Smoke chambers are essentially upside down staircases guiding the smoke of the fire from the fireplace up into the chimney flue. If the smoke chamber is damaged or poorly designed and that smoke doesn’t swiftly enter the chimney flue and exit the home, problems can arise.

For example, more creosote can build up inside the chimney system. And since creosote is highly combustible and corrosive, that’s certainly not something we want.

Heat, hot ash, and stray sparks can also fit through those cracks and openings in the smoke chamber, causing a house fire, damage to nearby walls and framing, and even exposure to toxic gases produced by the fire.

Our goal is to keep these things from happening, which is why we stress to our clients the importance of having a smoke chamber repaired or parged smooth at the earliest sign of damage.
