Chimney Cleaning, Chimney Repairs, Chimney Inspections
A fireplace is a wonderful addition to a Southern California home – as long as its chimney works as it should. When there are problems, you need the help of a qualified local chimney service expert. Throughout the greater San Diego region, that expert is Chimney Sweep Inc., with offices in Lakeside, CA, and Oceanside, CA.
Chimney Sweeping & Cleaning
Since 1985, we’ve specialized in the art of chimney sweeping and chimney cleaning, and chimney service. We carry the Certified Chimney Professional designation, and our technicians have undergone extensive training in chimney cleaning, chimney safety, drafting, venting and inspection.
We remove flammable creosote, which causes most of the chimney fires reported each year in our area. To do this, we use specialized scrubbers, rods, whips, solvents and industrial vacuums.
Along with creosote, we safely remove tree debris, the nests of small animals and animals that have died inside the chimney. All of this can create a major drafting obstruction and send smoke and deadly carbon monoxide into your home.
Most fire safety agencies, including the Chimney Safety Institute of America, recommend annual chimney sweeping for residential chimneys.

There’s nothing better than a licensed chimney inspection to get to the bottom of problems with chimneys and figure out the best way to solve them. Our inspectors can spot early signs of damage and malfunction before the issues get out of hand.
We can also determine the extent of known damage from a chimney fire, an earthquake, a component breakdown, neglect or plain old age.
In certain cases, we perform CCTV video inspections, which allow us to see otherwise invisible areas within your chimney system.
Our team offers all three recognized levels of chimney inspection:
Level 1: The basic yearly chimney inspection.
Level 2: Performed when the home is being sold, the system is being altered and when serious damage is suspected. (Includes video.)
Level 3: A comprehensive inspection when severe damage is known to exist.
Chimney Sweep Inc. inspectors are qualified to perform any needed repairs, component replacements and structural rebuilding.
