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.

This company is one of the best around. Don't be fooled by some of these shady companies out there. I bought my wood stove from Total Chimney back in 2005. It is now 2009. The stove had a MFG defect that just showed now. Steve sent his crew over and repaired the stove with no questions asked. He stands by his products. I have used him since putting this wood stove in for the yearly cleanings as well. His crew does a great job and they are neat and full of knowledge about their products. They never leave a mess behind. I would not hesitate to buy another stove from Total Chimney. They stand by their products and really provide great service. I live out in Bethany and it gets cold! My stove heats my house just like Steve said it would. I couldn't be more pleased. He insisted I put the stainless steel chimney liner in with the stove. I was reluctant but this was money well spent. The stove runs very efficient and I sleep well at night knowing it was properly and safely installed. Be sure you line your chimney. It makes the stove run better and makes cleaning very easy from inside the hosue. 5 stars all the way!
