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

“I had Terry and Lee come out for our initial chimney sweep moving into a 30-year old home. They both pointed out issues that we were not even aware of (and that hadn't made it on our inspection). Terry gave us advice on how to fix the problems. After a 30 year old home, and the chimney had never been cleaned, I will definitely be using Valley every year!!”
