Mr. Smokestack Is Greensboro, NC’s Go-To Provider for Chimney Sweep Services, Inspections, & Repairs

Greensboro, NC is abundant with lush green foliage in the form of gorgeous public parks, gardens, and even an arboretum. But, despite all the gorgeous landscaping, this vibrant city did not receive its name from the bounty of emerald spaces it is home to. Its actual namesake? Revolutionary War General, Nathanael Greene.

No stranger to historical events, Greensboro is also considered to be one of the birthplaces of the Civil Rights Movement. In fact, visitors can check out the International Civil Rights Center & Museum and see original artifacts from important moments in our country’s past – the most notable of which is the Woolworth counter (restored and preserved in its original location) where several Black students demonstrated a sit-in after being denied lunch service in 1960.

Whether you’re a history buff looking to explore the city’s oldest and most treasured theaters and museums, or you’d rather spend the day at a ball game, Greensboro has something everyone can appreciate. And while our pleasantly mild climate makes activities such as these exceptionally enjoyable, sometimes you just want to lounge around at home in front of the fire. That’s where we come in.  

Mr. Smokestack has been the preferred chimney service provider in the greater Raleigh/Durham, NC area for well over a decade. So, no matter if it’s intensive repairs or full-system fireplace maintenance you’re looking for, the talented team of technicians here at Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service are the ones to call.

We’re proud to serve our neighbors in Greensboro, but we also travel to other nearby communities in and around Guilford County, too: High Point, McLeansville, Oak Ridge, Sedalia, Pleasant Garden, Liberty, and Alamanace, just to name a few.

How Do You Know When Your Chimney Needs To Be Cleaned or Serviced?

Honestly, that is a tough question to clearly and succinctly answer. While there are certainly signs that indicate a need for immediate attention, in many different instances, it’s not always obvious when your fireplace and chimney system is suffering and requiring a little bit of TLC. That’s why industry leaders like the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the CSIA require homeowners to schedule both a chimney inspection and cleaning each and every year – regardless of use and performance history.

When you create a maintenance schedule – and more importantly, stay on top of it – you’re taking a proactive approach that will ensure your heating appliance performs at its best and provides your home with heat for as many years as possible. Prevention is usually preferred across all aspects of life, but this is especially true for the care and keeping of fireplaces and other alternative flame-producing hearth systems. Without a regular service schedule, you could run the risk of operating an unsafe appliance that leaves your family (and home) susceptible to a variety of dangers. Trust us, it’s just better to speak with a professional about establishing a routine, so you never have to wonder when your last chimney sweep was. 

That said, there are some telltale signs that your fireplace, insert, or stove is in distress and desperate for a professional look-over:

  • Strange sounds and/or other signs of wildlife presence.
  • Visible water damage such as stains on the ceiling or surrounding walls, pooling in the firebox, or efflorescence on the outside of the structure.
  • Unpleasant odors such as mold/mildew or a smoky campfire.
  • Excessive smoke production or other issues with proper drafting, such as trouble lighting a fire or keeping one lit.
  • Different, strange, or inefficient behavior and/or performance.

Keep in mind, each and every hearth is as unique as the home it’s been installed in. So, while these are generally universal symptoms, it’s always possible for variation in the presentation, frequency, and reason behind their presence. Remember, also, that this is not exhaustive in any way; just because your fireplace isn’t exhibiting these specific symptoms, if you feel that something is off or different from normal performance, it probably is.

Never use a fireplace, stove, insert, or any other appliance that is behaving strangely – give the pros at Mr. Smokestack a call at 919-747-1859 and we’ll schedule a time to check it out. Prefer to keep it online for now? Fill out this appointment request form and someone from our team will get back with you as soon as possible.

We just had the installers at Mr Smokestack get our previously non-operational gas fireplace up and running with a beautiful new set of logs and blower. We give Drew and Logan the highest of marks for doing a great job! They were professional, courteous and very knowledgeable, and gave us thorough instructions on the use and operation of our new equipment. Excellent work! Thank you!
