We’re in the last few weeks of winter and many homeowners are thinking about closing out the fireplace and chimney system for the off-season. What sort of planning goes into closing out the fireplace for summer? We recommend scheduling routine maintenance such as a chimney sweep and inspection so that summer humidity doesn’t cause a stink, and so that spring rains don’t cause a leak. These appointments are short, cheap, and necessary. Your fireplace may need more than routine maintenance, however. A routine chimney sweep won’t remove stains from the fireplace. Your fireplace is the centerpiece of the room and possibly the whole house, so stains are quite noticeable. Don’t worry, we have a solution for you.

In fact, the extended warranty is only valid when the products are applied by a professional.
Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service Uses Paint N Peel
Along with the water repellent and crown treatment products, we at Mr. Smokestack Chimney Service also use Paint “N” Peel Fireplace Cleaner to clean the tough stains from well-used fireboxes. Your fireplace may become stained if there isn’t optimum airflow. It may become stained with carbon when you periodically burn green or wet wood on a regular basis. It may just be that your fireplace is well-used and hasn’t been cleaned in this manner before.
This product is safe and effective for cleaning fireplaces. It is applied with a brush and left to dry for 24 to 48 hours. Once it’s dried, Paint “N” Peel becomes a thick, rubbery film which is then peeled from the masonry and discarded. All of the smoke and soot stains come off as it’s peeled away. It works on nearly all masonry surfaces, including marble, slate, concrete, tile, stone, mortar, cultured stone, and limestone. It restores the appearance of the heart without altering the masonry. It’s environmentally friendly, non-hazardous to those in the home, has no noxious odors, and is safe to use on interior and exterior masonry. You may have to see it to believe it!
