Chimney and Fireplace Sweeping and Cleaning

Keeping your chimney clean and well maintained is important for both your property value and for the health and safety of the people who live in your home. Regular chimney cleaning (also called “sweeping”) will not only help your chimney operate more efficiently, but is critical in preventing fires and uncovering potential safety hazards that you can’t see with the naked eye. Ensure your fireplace and chimney are safe to use by calling us for your annual chimney sweeping.


With regular chimney cleanings and inspections, you can:

  • Remove smelly creosote from your chimney flue
  • Reduce your risk of a chimney fire
  • Detect potential fire hazards
  • Remove flammable creosote buildup
  • Discover leaks and water problems before they cause extensive or expensive damage

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that every chimney and vented heating appliance be cleaned and inspected each year. This includes both gas and wood stoves, pellet stoves and all kinds of furnace flues. Even if you don’t use your chimney very often, it’s important to make sure that the structure is safe and sound. In the long run, regular chimney inspections will save you time and money as well as add to the value of your home. While we’re on the subject of having your chimney regularly swept and inspected, remember that we also provide oil flue cleaning and maintenance.

Take a moment to view the video below provided for consumers by The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA). It is highly informative and gives you a great idea of what we will do when sweeping your chimney vent system whether it’s a fireplace, stove or furnace.

I am a first time homeowner and very new to keeping a home. The other day, I received a phone call from a chimney company asking if I needed my chimney cleaned. They gave me a great price of $40, so I figured, why not. My husband and I were looking forward to using our fireplace and at that price how could I go wrong. The company showed up and started to scare me that my chimney could not be cleaned, because if they did, the entire chimney would collapse. They started to scare me, that if I did not do this, my gas furnace would leak carbon monoxide into my home and it would be unsafe for my family. They were really pressuring me into a $2000 repair job. When I said I needed to discuss it with my husband, they got really aggressive and insisted I do it right away. They wanted cash and would do it for half price if I did it now. They finally left after some tense moments. I told a friend about this and she told me to call Total Chimney Care. I did and was greeted by a nice woman on the phone. She seemed to know what I was talking about and understand my fears about having someone else come out. I agreed on an appointment (reluctantly) and waited for them. They arrived, looked at my chimney, and showed me that nothing was wrong. They cleaned my fireplace and even showed me how to use it. They were great, honest, and made me feel comfortable. I would use them again and recommend them to anyone. Thanks for reading. :-)
