EDEN PRAIRIE, MN – Blue Sky Chimney Sweeps (http://www.mplsblueskychimneysweeps.com/), in Eden Prairie, is advising homeowners to get their chimneys inspected during the winter months to prevent damage and to keep their homes safe.

The primary cause of chimney deterioration during the winter months is water damage.  Bricks that are cracked or chipped can absorb water from snow and rain, which then freezes as the temperatures drop.  The water in the brick expands, creating bigger cracks and holes.  As the water melts, more water can enter the brick.  This freeze and thaw process can cause bricks to crumble and fall away from the chimney.

Homeowners that take the necessary precautions to protect their chimney will prevent costly repairs and keep their house and family safe.  Get your fireplace and chimney cleaned and inspected annually to avoid structural issues and protect the integrity of your chimney.
