Chimney Sweep Services
Our chimney sweeps top priority is to keep your chimney safe and clean. There is no better way to prevent a chimney fire than a professional chimney sweep. That’s why the National Fire Protection Association recommends that homeowners with a wood-burning fireplace schedule a chimney cleaning once a year.
Creosote is an extremely flammable combustion byproduct that builds up in chimneys. It is the #1 cause of chimney fires. Creosote is tough to remove without professional-grade equipment and technical training. Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps have the skills and training to tackle the job.
Creosote isn’t all that we clear out during a chimney sweep. We also remove any obstructions that might be hiding in your chimneys, such as twigs, leaves, animal nests, and more. When your chimney vent is clogged, your risk of carbon monoxide poisoning increases. If carbon monoxide can’t escape up the chimney when you use your fireplace, it will flow into your home instead. Breathing in this tasteless, odorless gas for too long can be lethal. Our chimney sweeps eliminate this risk.
Hidden problems lurking in your chimney can put your home at risk of expensive water damage, fire, or carbon monoxide poisoning. That’s why the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) recommends scheduling a chimney inspection along with your annual cleaning. Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps perform thorough top-to-bottom inspections to spot signs of damage or deterioration.
We never send a rookie to do the job! Catching problems early can save you hundreds to thousands of dollars on repairs. That’s why we always send you an experienced chimney technician who can spot the warning signs of a chimney leak or structural deterioration.
A level 1 or basic inspection includes a visual assessment of your chimney from top to bottom. This includes checking out the chimney cap, chimney crown, chimney flashing, flue liner, fireplace damper, firebox, and exterior masonry. If your fireplace or chimney shows signs of severe internal damage or structural problems, you may need a level 2 inspection. During a level 2 inspection, we use a video camera or other electronic device to take a closer look inside your chimney.
When the inspection is complete, we will give you a detailed report of what we uncovered. If we discovered damage or deterioration, we would include suggested remedies. To ensure that you can trust our inspection, we have a strict policy against recommending services you don’t need.
