At Hale’s Chimney & Fireplace Solutions, we offer a wide variety of chimney services. Although we are Dallas’s number one choice for all things chimney, we do offer other services as well. Living and working in the Dallas area is great. Living in an area where the temperature is usually above freezing is wonderful, but it means that some people tend to not worry as much about chimney related issues that need maintenance more often in cooler climates. However, we here at Hale’s Chimney & Fireplace Solutions want to remind you that although we may not have to worry about colder weather as much as people living in the northern part of the country, we still need to maintain our chimney and dryer systems with the same regularity as if we lived in a cooler climate.
Water intrusion into your masonry is bad no matter where you live. Although freezing temperatures in northern climates cause a lot of masonry issues due to water freezing within the masonry, that doesn’t mean places, where there is rarely a hard freeze, shouldn’t worry about water intrusion. Even if the water in your masonry doesn’t freeze, it will still slowly degrade the inside of your brickwork, weakening you chimney’s structural integrity. Furthermore, although the Dallas area rarely gets hard freezes that last a long period of time, it only takes one freezing event to do a lot of damage to your chimney masonry. This is why we recommend having your chimney cap inspected closely during your annual chimney inspection. If your chimney cap is not protecting your chimney masonry, we here at Hale’s Chimney & Fireplace Solutions have chimney technicians who are highly trained in chimney cap installation. Let us make sure your chimney is safe from moisture damage by scheduling an appointment today.
You probably love the smell and feel of laundry that has been hanging on the clothesline. Fortunately, if you live within our service area, you can hang your laundry out to dry almost year round. Even if you only use your dryer a few months out of the year, it is still important to have your dryer vents inspected and cleaned at least annually. This is because that even a little piece of lint in your dryer vent can quickly snowball into a large clog. This can lead to your dryer performing badly, catching on fire, or even causing a toxic carbon monoxide gas leak inside your home. At Hale’s Chimney & Fireplace Solutions, our ventilation experts have many years of training and experience cleaning out dryer vents. Let us make sure that your dryer is running smoothly and safely today.
These are just a few out of many other potential chimney and ventilation issues that sometimes get overlooked by homeowners. The only way to truly know you haven’t overlooked an issue is to have your chimney and dryer vents inspected annually by a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) certified chimney sweep. Only CSIA certified chimney sweeps, like the ones at Hale’s Chimney & Fireplace Solutions, have the experience and training to safely and effectively inspect your chimney and ventilation for potential issues. If you’re ready for a chimney inspection, call us Hale’s Chimney & Fireplace Solutions 972-562-6851 or schedule an appointment with one of our chimney technicians online today.
