With roughly 600,000 people, Milwaukee is Wisconsin’s largest city and the fifth-largest city in the Midwest. Known for its brewing traditions and proximity to Lake Michigan, the city’s name comes from an Algonquian word that means “good,” “beautiful,” “pleasant land, and “gathering place by the water.”
Truly a place by the water, Milwaukee is bordered by Lake Michigan on the east and has multiple rivers running through it, including the Kinnickinnic River, the Menomonee River, the Milwaukee River, and the Root River. Founded in approximately 1818, Milwaukee has three founders: George H. Walker, Byron Kilbourn, and Solomon Juneau. The names of these founders live on today in the neighborhoods and parks named after them—Walker’s Point, Kilbourn Town, and Juneau Square, among others.
With such a rich history, it is no surprise that there are so many historical homes with chimneys in Milwaukee that need restoration and servicing. From the palatial mansions on Lake Drive to the historic residences in Washington Heights, thousands of fireplaces in Milwaukee keep our residents warm in the winter—which is why it is so important that they be inspected regularly!
As a homeowner with a chimney, one of the most important things that you can do to protect your property is to have your fireplace inspected annually and cleaned regularly. Over time, chimneys build up dangerous deposits of creosote. If left unchecked, creosote can be a health hazard and a fire hazard.
One of the most common Milwaukee chimney cleaning services we offer is a thorough brushing of the chimney flue, firebox, and smoke chamber. This helps clear creosote deposits and protect the chimney from unnecessary damage.
We also offer Milwaukee chimney inspections, chimney restoration services, and stainless steel chimney liner installation services. Having a stainless steel liner installed is a great way to help protect your fireplace from the corrosive flue gasses that are emitted by home heating appliances. And, all of the stainless steel flue liners that Smoke Stacks, Inc. installs come with a lifetime manufacturer warranty.
