Neglected & unsafe chimneys account for a significant number of injuries and deaths each year totaling more than $200 million in property losses every year. Since a damaged, deteriorating, or blocked chimney can cause chimney fires or carbon monoxide poisoning, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends having an annual chimney cleaning and chimney inspection each year.

From West Hartford to Avon, Farmington, Simsbury, South Windsor, Tolland, Newington and Wethersfield, our professional certified sweeps provide chimney cleaning services in all of central Connecticut.
Every time you burn a fire in your fireplace, combustible by-products are deposited in the chimney flue in the form of creosote and soot. Creosote is a black, tar-like residue that is extremely flammable and soot is the miniscule, powder-like substance which colors smoke and consists chiefly of carbon. Hot embers from your wood burning fire may come in contact with these flammable deposits and potentially start a dangerous chimney fire.
The buildup of creosote and soot can also cause a dangerous blockage that not only interferes with the performance and efficiency of your fireplace, but lead to carbon monoxide backing up in your living area.
Don’t take chances with the safety of your home and family. Make sure that your chimney and fireplace system is cleaned and inspected annual to help prevent chimney fires and dangerous C0 Poisoning.
What does a chimney cleaning entail?
Our chimney sweep techs remove any creosote, soot, and other blockages from your flue lining. We also clean out your firebox, damper, and smoke chamber, leaving behind a clean and efficient chimney system. We provide a thorough chimney cleaning which includes the removal of any deposits that have formed in the flue so that you can safely use and enjoy your fireplace or other heating appliances. Our modern, high-tech tools allow us to tackle the dirty job of cleaning chimneys without leaving a mess behind in your home. During your chimney cleaning, our techs will also report any hazards, deficiencies, or vulnerabilities discovered while performing the cleaning and then recommend repairs if needed.
Every chimney sweep that comes to your home will be a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep, the highest standard in our industry, and every one of our techs has passed certification. Many local companies only have certification for the owner, not for all the techs. When it comes to protecting your family with a properly performing chimney, don’t take chances with unqualified contractors that promise low prices. Not only are our prices fair, but we always provide you with licensed, insured and certified chimney sweeps for every job!
