What Is a Smoke Chamber?

Your chimney’s smoke chamber is the area between the fireplace and the chimney flue, and it may very well be a hidden hazard in your home. Because it’s not easily visible, this area is often overlooked even though it may be crying out for repairs. At Pozzi Chimney Sweep, we protect your home from a potential structure fire and restore the smoke chamber using a product called Smoktite.

How Smoktite Works

This breakthrough spray technology allows smoke chamber repairs to be done faster, easier, and more cost effectively. Prior to the advent of Smoktite, it was necessary to remove a chimney’s damper frame and nearby brickwork in order to hand trowel a cement-type material onto the masonry surface. This option was difficult and costly. Nowadays the process is made easier and less expensive with Smoktite, which is a unique ceramic product that is sprayed in smoke chambers to seal holes and gaps. It creates a smooth, highly insulating coating that is impervious to acids, vapors, water, and heat up to 3000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Improve the operation of your fireplace and protect your home by taking care of your smoke chamber. A certified chimney professional from Pozzi Chimney Sweep can inspect your chimney’s smoke chamber to determine if it needs restoration. Call us at 815-286-9922 or email us at to schedule your inspection.
