Our thorough Chimney Sweeping service is assisted by a powerful vacuum that prevents any soot, dust or debris from entering your home atmosphere. AND We lay drop clothes in front of your unit to protect your flooring and hearth.
Metal or Poly Brushes are typed and sized to fit your chimney flue materials and dimensions exactly for the best possible effect on soot removal.
Every chimney and appliance serviced receives a BASIC Homeowner Evaluation of all visible areas. We always do MORE than just sweep the flue, we will do the short evaluation to see if all is in order and alert you to any issues we may find.
Or you may be needing / requesting a WETT Evaluation. These are defined by..

INTERIOR VIDEO INSPECTION SYSTEM
Ever wonder exactly what condition your chimney REALLY is in??
Our video inspection service will provide you with visual knowledge. We can also provide you and/or your Insurer with still photos of trouble spots or a video tape for your Insurance requirements or claims. This Video Look at your INTERIOR chimney flue will show any damage, cracks, broken tiles, blockages, deterioration, missing mortar or other problem areas within each flue.
RAIN CAPS - SCREENS & FIREPLACE ACCESSORIES
HUMANE ANIMAL & BIRD REMOVALS
We offer Humane and safe removal of birds, bats, raccoons, squirrels and their young. Babies are gently removed and put in box on property so mom can collect and relocate where possible
If you hear mewling and squeaking in the spring from your chimney, chances are mother nature has put up vacancy sign for the local fur bearing critters to nest in YOUR chimney. Imagine.... non-paying renters LOL
Once the critters leave, their nesting materials can and will cause blockages and fires within the flue channel. It is important to remove these creatures and any nesting as soon as is possible to prevent any potential problems.
Capping the chimney, with a well made rain cap with screen, once they are gone, will deter their return.
NOTE: For all chimneys, you should look up to the chimney and check your cap after any heavy wind storm to ensure that it is still intact and not blown off.
The Sweep does not generally clean out the Ash-pit below a fireplace. These areas can sometimes be cavernous and time consuming.
If you wish this done, INFORM the office when you book the appointment so that they can arrange the technicians’ time and inform you of any additional charges. This will be charged by the hour not a set price. The homeowner should make it their responsibility to clear this area and remove this ash themselves regularly. One or two buckets a week until empty. Then have the ash-pit opening sealed off in the firebox.
We have personally seen ash-pits with wood beams running across them that have been blackened by falling hot embers and ash that has been swept into them. We advise people NOT to use them if they can avoid it and to fill them with masonry.
