Prevent Chimney Fires

  • Hiring our certified chimney sweep Mobile AL team has many benefits, the most important of which is safety. You can trust the Fireplace Doctor to rid your chimney of any potential hazards. Like creosote which is a flammable buildup that can cause a chimney fire, which could spread to other parts of your home. 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.

  • If all of the smoke is not leaving your chimney, it’s entering back into your house and worse, into your lungs. This can be caused by animals creating blockages as well as water damage.

Fort Conde

Built by the French on Mobile Bay in 1702 to defend their colony, the fort was rebuilt in 1723 after a flood, serving as the area’s main defense point until 1820. By 1823, all of the fort’s buildings had been removed to make way for what is now downtown Mobile, including present-day Theater Street, Government Boulevard, Royal Street, and more. Today’s historic fort area covers about one-third of the original space, and was reconstructed using a 4/5 scale to incorporate as many of the features as possible. Opened in celebration of the nation’s bicentennial in 1976, the fort gives tourists a glimpse of life in the fort during the 18th century. The fort also offers fun, family-friendly activities like a colonial-themed photo gallery, a shooting gallery, and a photo set with colonial costumes and props. Visitors can get a copy of the free self-guided walking tour of the grounds and museum by stopping at the Trading Post.
