Indianapolis Chimney Services
Guardian Chimney Service is dedicated to the excellence of service in every way, this includes our response to protective and preventive measures during this time of great concern about the Coronavirus. While we are still operating, as phone calls still come in for issues that may still arise even though most American families have been very disrupted from their normal schedules.
Birds/nesting still clogs dryer vents, because nature still runs its course; chimneys still leak, because it still rains; and folks are still using their fireplaces- many without having had the fireplace and flue properly inspected and swept every year to help prevent flue fires and other potentially dangerous issues.
Remember that Guardian Chimney Service is still available! While also taking precautions to keep you (and us) as safe as possible during this time. There are many shifting priorities at this time. We are praying for the health and safety of all of our families, fellow neighbors and customers. In the meantime, please remember to call for help with your questions about fireplace and dryer vent safety.
God bless you!
THE CHIMNEY: One of the most neglected and misunderstood parts of your home.
One of the myths that homeowners believe about their chimney is: "it is just brick and mortar in there, so what could go wrong?". The truth is, the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) recommends annual sweepings and inspections of residential chimneys simply because lots of things can go wrong when your chimney is neglected. Another myth that homeowners adhere to is: "the home inspector "passed" the chimney, so it HAS to be safe, right?"
WRONG. While even the most expert home inspectors have a general understanding of different areas of the home, they often dont receive specific training with regard to chimneys, flues and fireplaces. AND they carry NO LIABILITY for whatever they dont find, even if the fireplace system is later determined (by a chimney professional like Guardian Chimney Service) to be defective.
If it has been more than a year since the last sweeping or inspection;
If you are new to the home and have no maintenance records on the fireplace and flue;

Health Benefits and Energy Savings
A chimney (and Dryer Vent) that is well-maintained adds lasting value to your property, as well as helping you and your family have peace of mind about the safety and functionality of your fireplace. During the rainy spring months, some homeowners report a "sour, smoky smell" emanating from their fireplace. And they also mention that it aggravates allergy sufferers during an already pollen-rich, allergy triggering time of year.
- The Cause: Most often, a dirty chimney is the root of the problem.
- The Solution: Guardian Chimney Service's "Premium Chimney and Flue Clean Sweep and Odor Resolution".
This can require an additional step or two to remove the stubborn "stage 2 or 3 Creosote" with an application of "Creosote Neutralizer" and "Odor Eliminator". This is a little more expensive than a simple chimney sweep, but is well worth it to resolve the issue.
Did you know that you lose a TON of energy through a chimney doesn't have an updated, Lifetime Warranty stainless steel Chimney Cap/Damper? In the wintertime, when sweeping a chimney on a rigidly cold day, we can simply hold our hands over the flue, at the top of the chimney, to keep them warm! And that's even if the damper below is closed! Call Guardian Chimney Service today and ask about a Top Sealing Damper. In today's energy-conscious world, it will save you hundreds in heating/cooling costs, as well as providing you with a more modern, easier-to-operate damper handle -(no more getting your hands dirty while fishing around in the upper fireplace for the creosote-stained damper handle!) Call for an estimate over the phone and a free, friendly consultation with the owner of the company!
