From bird and animal nests to insect hives, leaves, and other debris, chimney obstructions can be hard to reach and often lead to ventilation and flue liner issues.
Annual chimney inspections and cleanings typically help prevent troublesome obstructions, but sometimes customers notice unusual blockages that require immediate attention. Lindemann technicians use specialized equipment to locate, inspect, and remove chimney obstructions of all sizes and shapes.
The chimney obstruction removal process begins with a standard chimney scan. We then diagnose the blockage and discuss our findings and recommendations with each customer. In every case, we are equipped to remove the obstruction and return each chimney to peak performance.
To know if your chimney is obstructed, look for signs such as smoke backdraft, poor fire performance, unusual noises, and unpleasant odors. A visual inspection and smoke test can also indicate obstruction. Always call a professional if you suspect an issue.Read Full Answer
