We can determine why your fireplace is smoking and analyze your draft problems.

Fireplace Draft Problem Analysis

We understand the frustration in a smoke filled house. You just wanted a nice quiet evening by the fire and instead you wound up smoking the family room out – again. There are some simple tips to avoid backpuffing from your fireplace. But, if the simple tips don’t work, we recommend bringing in a professional like Valley Chimney Sweep & Restoration to assess, analyze and fix your draft problems.

Why Does My Fireplace Smoke?

There are a number of reasons why your fire smokes into your home rather than up your chimney. Whether you have tight home construction, a leaky or poorly built chimney, crooked pipe layout, a blocked passage, air pressure issues, over-dry firewood and/or seasonal changes, we can analyze your drafting issues and make recommendations to get your fire blowing back up your chimney, possibly more efficiently than before.

Back To Services

“It is not often that I can speak highly about customer service experience, but I'm more than happy to write this review. I highly recommend Valley Chimney Sweep & Restoration. They restored my chimney that was crumbling after a different company 'fixed' it - and did an amazing job. Great service from start to finish with a 10 year masonry warranty. Thanks guys!”
