Founded in 1936 as part of President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal initiatives, Greendale was one of three “Greenbelt” communities. These communities were designed to combine the advantages of country and city life, to provide quality housing at fair prices for middle income families, and to provide jobs to the unemployed during the Great Depression.

Today, the village of Greendale has just over 14,000 residents, has a bustling Village Center, and has a well-earned reputation for having some of the most sought-after historical homes in the area. Greendale residents take their history so seriously, in fact, that there are even walking tours of their village, their gardens, and their chimneys. That’s right—their chimneys!

There are over 200 chimneys in Greendale decorated with folk art by a plaster named Al Emmons who started adorning the Greendale chimneys in the 1980s. Each chimney is unique, with some decorated with animals, others with flowers, and yet others with colorful emblems and icons.

Obviously, Greendale takes its chimneys seriously, which is why, when their fireplaces and chimneys need servicing, they call the fireplace experts at Smoke Stacks, Inc.

Having a pretty chimney is great, but it takes regular chimney sweeping and maintenance to protect the longevity and safety of your fireplace. Without cleaning and sweeping, fireplaces are prone to a buildup of creosote, the dark, tar-like substance left behind when wood is burned. Not only is creosote buildup dangerous for your chimney, it can be dangerous for your family as well.

Not sure if your chimney has creosote buildup? Call Smoke Stacks, Inc. to schedule a chimney cleaning. Our chimney sweeps will thoroughly scrub your chimney to remove the harmful deposits and any other common obstructions that may be present.
