Chimney Sweeping in Escondido
Neglected chimneys are dangerous chimneys. Flammable creosote, which forms in the flue during fireplace use, can cause both minor and highly destructive chimney fires. We use specialized chimney sweep tools to remove creosote.
If you use your chimney without a chimney cap, various debris can get into the flue and narrow the drafting passage. This can lead to smoke and deadly carbon monoxide backing up into the house. We remove leaves, twigs, animal nests, dead animals and other debris. We also install chimney caps to prevent this issue in the future.
Common Chimney Problems
Chimney Sweeps Inc. holds a Certified Chimney Professional designation and has seen every kind of chimney problem imaginable. Following an inspection (see below), we can resolve any issue your chimney is having:
- Leaky chimney
- Smelly chimney
- Smoky chimney
- Brick and mortar decay
- Animal infestation
- Rust in the chimney
- White stains on the masonry
and all other chimney problems that may arise.
Our Escondido chimney inspectors know how to spot early signs of damage and malfunction within chimney and fireplace systems. We provide all three recognized levels of chimney inspection, from basic annual inspections to specialized inspections when:

- You’re adding a new appliance to the system or otherwise altering it
- Damage is suspected
