Addressing Draft Issues
Before we polish up your fireplace’s exterior, we need to ensure you will not facing staining and discoloration again later. If your system is having drafting issues, then smoke may cause those pesky stains to occur again.
There are a number of things that can be done to resolve problems with draft. Sometimes the size or height of the chimney is off, in which case reconstruction work will need to be done, and other times airflow issues can be resolved with something as simple as replacing your damper or chimney cap. Many chimneys just require a cleaning to work great again!
No matter what is going on, our team can troubleshoot your chimney problems and get them resolved.
Better Looking Masonry Every Time
Once any repairs or regular maintenance is completed, we can get started removing your smoke stains. We use Pull “N” Peel, a great product designed to remove stains and discoloration in a way that is effective and odor-free with minimal mess. Stop spending your days scrubbing and wiping to no avail. Count on us, and we will get our Paint “N” Peel products applied right away.
So, what does this process entail? Well, first of all, we prep all of your fireplace surfaces and seal off the mantel, trim, and other surrounding woodwork. After that is done, we will apply the Paint “N” Peel. This product needs to dry for around six to twelve hours, after which we will come back and peel it off. It is that simple and, afterwards, you will be left with a cleaner and more sightly fireplace front.

We at Weststar Chimney Sweeps want to not only be sure your fireplace and chimney work safely and properly, but we also want your fireplace to look the best it can. If you have noticed that the bricks or stones around and inside your fireplace look dark and smudgy, it is most likely time to clean those bricks and stones. Of course, you could use elbow grease and scrub off the smoke stains, but we have an easier way to clean your masonry fireplace that will leave those bricks and stones looking brand new. We would like to tell you more about this revolutionary product, Paint N Peel Fireplace Cleaner, we use to remove smoke stains.
What is Paint N Peel Fireplace Cleaner?
A water-based cleaning poultice, Paint N Peel Fireplace Cleaner easily removes unattractive smoke, soot, dirt, and creosote stains from masonry fireplace fronts and hearths. Environmentally-friendly, this cleaner leaves behind no noxious odors and can be used indoors and outdoors.
How does Paint N Peel work?
Using our special tools, our chimney sweeps will paint on a thick coating of the poultice and allow it to dry for six to twelve hours. During its drying process, the layer becomes a tough, elastic topcoat on your fireplace surfaces. Once it has thoroughly dried, our sweeps will then peel away the layer to reveal clean bricks and stones.
To what surfaces can Paint N Peel Fireplace Cleaner be safely applied?
This product has been formulated to use on textured and smooth bricks, granite, marble, slate, limestone, concrete, and tile. Of course, Weststar Chimney Sweeps will be sure Paint N Peel can be safely used on your fireplace before we apply it.
Can I use Paint N Peel Fireplace Cleaner myself?
While you can apply this remarkable fireplace cleaner on your own, Weststar Chimney Sweeps recommends you hire professional chimney sweeps to do this job to guarantee the Paint N Peel Fireplace Cleaner is correctly used. We have lots of experience cleaning fireplace fronts and hearths with this cleaner and know exactly what to do. We know which areas will need a thicker coating with more time to dry. And, although this formula is non-toxic, it is always a good idea to let professionals handle any chemical cleaner or solvent. We will also be sure to protect all surrounding carpet, wood, fabric, metal, and painted surfaces from drips or spills that could stain these materials. We will also dust the areas of your fireplace before applying Paint N Peel to ensure the best possible results.
