Sykesville has hot and humid summers and cool winters with highly variable seasonal snowfall. Due to its elevation and distance from the Chesapeake Bay, temperatures in Sykesville are often considerably lower than in eastern parts of Maryland, especially at night. Frequent freeze-thaw cycles, higher than average snowfall, and more frequent use of fireplaces by Carroll County homeowners means Sykesville chimneys often require service more frequently than in other areas of the region. If you notice cracking of your chimney crown, crumbling mortar, or debris in your fireplace, call Fire-Safe Chimney Sweeps today for your annual inspection and cleaning. We can diagnose and repair any maintenance issues to keep your chimney and fireplace burning trouble-free.

Protect your family from Carbon Monoxide with a clean chimney

Sykesville chimney sweep

Carbon monoxide poisoning is usually caused by incomplete combustion and inadequate ventilation. Sooted chimneys and flues slow the escape of combustion gases from your home and can cause a backup into living areas. Signs of buildup of this colorless, odorless gas include:

  • Stuffy, stale, or smelly air
  • High humidity
  • Soot from fireplaces or furnaces

The best treatment for exposure is to get lots of fresh air and immediate medical attention. To reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, gas and oil appliance manufacturers as well as fireplace manufacturers recommend a yearly safety check-up and cleaning. Let Fire-Safe Chimney Sweeps clean your chimney or furnace flue annually to make sure that combustion gases are moving safely up your Sykesville chimney or flue and out of your home.
