FIREBOX REPAIR

The firebox of the fireplace is where you burn the wood. It should be surrounded by fire brick to withstand the extreme temperatures generated by a fire. Often these blazing temperatures will disintegrate the fire brick and the mortar between them. We replace and/or repair the damage with a high temperature refractory cement to insure that the firebox is safe. Click here for more information.

FIREPLACES

We sweep, brush and vacuum the chimney, smoke chamber, and firebox, often from the outside. NO MESS! We utilize drop cloths and runners as needed. We also include a Level I inspection. (A Level I inspection is required by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and involves a complete visual inspection of all the components making up a fireplace, firebox, smoke chamber and chimney including masonry and flashing.)

GAS AND OIL CHIMNEYS

Our cleaning process includes brushing the chimney with properly sized brushes. We remove the smoke pipe, brush and vacuum the pipe work, shovel and vacuum the breech and reseal the pipe work to the wall. The procedure also includes a full Level I inspection to ensure the venting system and chimney are up to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 211 code, NFPA 31. CLICK HERE

GLAZED CREOSOTE REMOVAL

Wood burners, especially wood stoves, may experience severe creosote (the by-product resulting from burning wood) build-up in the chimney system. This dangerous flammable substance will coat the chimney system and second or third degree creosote could result. We eliminate the creosote and keep you safe.

PRE-FAB CHIMNEY INSTALLATION

Prefabricated chimneys are factory-built chimney systems which are assembled and installed on the jobsite. We offer a full line of prefab chimneys including CLASS-A, B-Vent, PELLET CHIMNEY, and DOUBLE WALL STOVE PIPE. We install everything we sell. Most products come with a lifetime guarantee. We offer larger commercial size chimneys. We also install aluminum/stainless brick-look housings and textural "real-look" brick housings. 

RELINING OF CHIMNEYS – UL LISTED

Chimneys which have deteriorated from age, fire, water, or improper installation may need to be relined. There are many differing products available for relining, and many of them can have questionable longevity. Irish Sweeps Chimney Ltd. uses ONLY hi-grade 316–L stainless steel or better. All work is done to National Fire Protection Association codes (NFPA 211, etc.) or better. WE GUARANTEE ALL OUR WORK - we were established in 1974 and we'll be around for many years to come. A guarantee is useless if the company is gone or has a new name. CLICK HERE

SMOKE CHAMBER RESTORATION

The smoke chamber of a fireplace (above the damper) can be one of the most problematic parts of the fireplace, and a very common source of a chimney fire due to its proximity to the heat from the firebox. We utilize a special hi-temp ceramic process (Smoktite™) which repairs, insulates and seals the smoke chamber with a smooth ceramic. This ceramic can be applied with no expensive demolition to the original fireplace.

SMOKING/SMELLY FIREPLACES AND DRAFT PROBLEMS CORRECTED

What causes these problems? The answer involves many different and divergent possible causes, and solutions too numerous to delineate here. Suffice to say, if you have one of these problems we can solve it! Irish Sweeps has been solving chimney problems since 1974. (One solution is to use a chimney fan. See www.enervex.com for more information.) CLICK HERE

STAINLESS CHASE COVERS

A chase cover is the square metal cover piece that fits over the top of a chimney housing or chase. Unfortunately original equipment rarely, if ever, is a non-corrosive material and normally will develop rust, stains and leaks. Our chase covers are 100% stainless steel and come with a Lifetime Guarantee. Also available in copper.

When mother nature strikes, we are ready! Lightning, wind, rain, ice, snow, and tree damage may need fast response and repair. At Irish Sweeps we specialize in storm repair.
