Chimney Cleaning

  • How deposits build up – Over time, with use of fireplace, creosote builds up inside chimney
  • Benefits of cleaning – Prevents fire hazard, less “smoke” smell, removes debris/animal nests, gives chimney appropriate clearance it needs to safely allow smoke to escape
  • Safety – With creosote build-up, a chimney may not have the appropriate clearance it needs to safely allow smoke to escape chimney. Creosote build-up is extremely flammable, causing a fire hazard
  • Efficiency – Proper cleaning of a hot water heater/furnace chimney allows the appliances to expel gases with more efficiency than if the chimney is clogged. This could be a fire hazard if not kept swept
  • Cleaning methodology – Basic cleaning is when brushes are used to safely eliminate creosote build-up and debris from chimney. TSR Treatments are used for significant creosote build-up in a chimney. A chemical is sprayed inside the chimney, left for a few days, then a sweep is performed to remove build-up. There are 3 stages of TSR Treatment depending on severity of creosote build-up

Chimney Repair


  • Types of damage – We can fix many types of damage such as: water damage, masonry damage, damage to cap, damage to chase cover, etc

  • How to spot damage – Foul smell, visual masonry deterioration, visual water entry, visual animal entry, visual cracks/deterioration of crown
  • Inspection/diagnostic methodology – Perform an inspection


  • Repoint – fix loose/missing bricks on crown of chimney

  • What to look for – Shifting/missing tiles, ill-fitting metal liners
  • Inspection/diagnostic methodology – Either a visual inspection or inspection with a camera will allow the tech to see shifting/missing tiles
  • Types of liners – We use stainless steel corrugated or smooth-wall liners
  • Offer – Current coupon for $100 Off Stainless Steel Liner System


Chimney Caps & Dampers

  • What they are/How they work – We use stainless steel chimney caps. Caps attach to the crown of the chimney and help keep out water, debris, and animals. A damper is a “door” that opens to allow smoke to escape the chimney and closes prevents air/debris from coming down the chimney into the fireplace. We also have an alternative damper call the “Lock Top Damper”. This is a stainless steel “cap” that acts as a damper by allowing the customer to open and close the damper via a chain that drops down in the fireplace
  • Why they’re important – Caps and dampers are essential for use in a chimney. Water, animals & debris could enter the chimney without caps and dampers and cause damage
  • How to tell they need attention – A rusty cap or cap that is not secure to the chimney needs to be replaced. Dampers that are difficult to open and closed need to be replaced
  • Inspection methodology – We inspect caps for rust, movement and fit. We inspect dampers for rust and workability
  • Options to correct/replace – A cap can be easily replaced by measuring the chimney for proper fit and installing the correct cap for the chimney. A old/unusable damper can easily to changed out with a lock-top damper

Dryer Vent Cleaning

  • Dryer vents should be kept clean to prevent lint build-up from causing a fire hazard
