Beware of chimney sweeps who call you offering rock bottom prices for a cleaning or inspection! Chimney sweep scams are common here in Connecticut. According to the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List, these fake chimney sweeps often convince homeowners they found serious chimney damage during their phony cleaning or inspection. Many times, they will show homeowners broken pieces of brick that they claim to have found as evidence that the chimney is in disrepair. They use this tactic to take advantage of homeowners’ trust and receive large payments for unneeded repairs.
Your chimney system could be seriously damaged by a fake chimney contractor. A bad cleaning job, poorly installed chimney cap or inappropriately installed chimney liner could all increase the risk of carbon monoxide exposure or a house fire. The best way to avoid a scam like this is to be wary of contractors who offer prices that seem too good to be true and to make sure that the chimney contractor you hire is CSIA certified, properly licensed and fully insured.
The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) is the most trusted association that certifies chimney technicians. All technicians that receive their certification have gone through intensive technical training on how to properly repair and clean chimney systems. They have also studied the best safety procedures to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning and residential fires. You can check to see if a business is CSIA certified on their website.

Don’t fall for the “cheap sweep” scam. Fake “chimney sweeps” have been calling homeowners, offering hard-to-beat prices on regularly chimney cleanings and inspections. These so-called contractors are not certified and almost never insured. Their whole goal is to get the job so they can then upsell the homeowners on expensive chimney repairs. Many times, these repairs aren’t required or necessary, but since many homeowners aren’t familiar with the anatomy of their chimney and venting system, they must take a contractor at their word.
Don’t agree to any extensive chimney services or repairs without getting a second option from a reputable chimney sweep company first! Since most of these “cheap sweeps” are not qualified to work on your chimney, you may be putting yourself and your home at risk if you hire them.
