Prevent Chimney Fires

Our technicians will perform a 21-point safety inspection to ensure your family is safe and sound while enjoying the comfort of your fireplace.
  • You might think your chimney is safe from something like water, right? Well, all masonry (brick) chimneys are porous, meaning they absorb water like a sponge. they can absorb water day after day with no apparent issues. However, they gradually cause worse and worse damage if not stopped by a chimney pro. water can cause structural damage which might cause the chimney to collapse. Water can also cause draft problems; if the water gets to the flue tiles, it can cool them off, this causes the flue to be less hot, which causes the smoke to cool as well. This makes the smoke begin to fall back down the flue, and possibly into your home. Our water leak specialists are trained to spot signs of water leaks and damage and put a stop to it immediately.
  • The Chimney Sweep Institute of America states that a chimney shall be inspected every year to ensure structure and soundness. Our inspections will be able to locate any problem that might cause trouble if otherwise not treated. Here at Fireplace Doctor of Mobile, we care about you more than anything.

Battleship USS ALABAMA Memorial Park

USS Alabama (BB-60) is a retired battleship. She was the fourth and final member of the South Dakota class of fast battleships built for the United States Navy in the 1930s.  Overcrowding was exacerbated by wartime modifications that considerably strengthened their anti-aircraft batteries and significantly increased their crews. After entering service, Alabama was briefly deployed to strengthen the British Home Fleet, tasked with protecting convoys to the Soviet Union. In 1943, she was transferred to the Pacific for operations against Japan; the first of these was the Gilbert and Marshall Islands campaign that began in November that year. Wikipedia
