    • I strongly advise against using chemicals or pressure washing a leaky chimney before it's repaired. The leak itself is the primary issue. Focusing on cleaning the exterior might mask the underlying problem and delay necessary repairs. Here's why: Safety: Pressure washing can potentially worsen the leak by forcing water into cracks and crevices. Efficiency: Cleaning the exterior won't address the root cause of the leak. Potential Damage: Harsh chemicals can damage the chimney's materials. Prioritize fixing the leak first. Once the chimney is repaired, you can then focus on cleaning its exterior. If you're determined to clean the exterior before repairs, use a gentle cleaning solution and a soft brush to avoid causing further damage. Would you like to explore options for temporarily protecting the area around the leak while you wait for repairs?

    • Hello, I've tried doing research on protective lacquers that will prevent ant infestations as well but I've come up with some very contradicting answers. I found this forum and figured it was worth a shot. If anyone has recommendations for me that would be great some I've looked into are Cedar Shield and I've also seen some things around using a silicone based one to prevent ants building a colony inside but I've also read silicone is bad. I am very confused and would much appreciate any help or knowledge. I am unsure what kinds of wood I have but I do know one is cedar.
