A lot can happen to a home over 52 weeks of Olney, MD weather. That’s why we recommend yearly chimney inspections for every home and commercial property in the Olney area. The experts at Chimney.com will thoroughly inspect your chimney, keeping an eye out for any imperfections that could impact its safety and service life. Water is a chimney’s primary enemy, so we keep a special lookout for signs of leaks and water damage.
Here are just some of the setups we can inspect for safety:
- Built-in and prefab fireplaces
- Gas fireplaces (inserts, gas burners, and log sets)
- Venting systems
- Furnace, boiler, and water heater flues (gas or oil)
- Interior and exterior masonry
- Freestanding wood stoves and wood stove inserts
Now, admit it – did you notice any strange smells the last time you lit your fireplace? Did you maybe shrug this off, and attribute it to something unsavory you stepped in while walking the Norbeck golf course? Well, we’re here to tell you – the culprit was probably dangerous creosote buildup, not dog waste. Creosote is a highly flammable substance that greatly increases your risk of suffering a house fire. Keep your home and family safe (and free of unidentifiable odors) — schedule chimney cleaning before you build your next fire. Chimney.com will get the job done fast and correctly.
Our chimney cleaning services include:
- Cleaning out the smoke chamber
- Removing creosote and soot deposits
- Vacuuming the firebox
- Ensuring a clean, soot-free house
The lining is one of the most important components of any chimney. This noncombustible channel lines the inside masonry, shielding it against high heat and debris that fire leaves behind. Chimney.com is one of the only chimney companies doing business in Olney licensed by WSSC as a Master Plumber and Gas Fitter. This license is required to reline furnace flues and work on gas appliances.
Here are some common signs that you need chimney relining:
- Your older home or commercial property doesn’t have a chimney liner.
- The chimney is prone to condensation.
- You’re updating your fireplace to run on a new fuel source.
- Your gas appliance is venting into a masonry chimney.

All Olney, MD residents are accustomed to heavy rains. But where we can pull on our slickers and grab our umbrellas, our chimneys aren’t as flexible. The constant exposure to rain, wind, snow, and winter’s freezing temperatures does more damage to masonry chimneys than fire does! Water seeps in and causes the steel and cast-iron components to rust, weakening the metal over time. A complete chimney rebuild will restore the structural integrity of your old, weather-beaten chimney. If you notice your chimney start to lean or deteriorate, restoration might be the right call.
