As colder weather approaches, many residents are getting ready to use their fireplaces for the first time this season. Many people don’t realize, but chimneys and fireplaces need regular maintenance.
Chimneys are constantly exposed to the harsh environment resulting in cracks. Additionally, smoke going through the chimney can result in a build up of creosote over time.
This black, flaky residue builds up along the inner surfaces of the chimney, and is highly flammable and combustible, meaning that it greatly increases your fire hazard risk in your home. Failure to clean a dirty chimney is one of the leading factors contributing to home heating fires.
Founded in 2020 by Eddie Blackburn, Blackburn Chimney is the premier chimney company in the Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland area. Eddie worked as the Lead Chimney Technician for two large chimney companies. After learning the ins-and-outs of the business, Eddie ventured out to start his own company, Blackburn Chimney.
Blackburn Chimney is owned and operated in Silver Spring and prides itself on excellent customer service.
Blackburn Chimney specializes in chimney and fireplace cleanings and repairs, inspections, entire chimney rebuilds, and general masonry work. Make sure to get your chimney checked before you use it this season!
