Chimney Sweeps & Fireplace Services La Jolla, CA
La Jolla, California, homeowners rely on Chimney Sweep Inc. to keep their chimneys and fireplaces clean, safe and efficient. Here’s how we can help you.
Chimney Sweep Services
Our crew has the equipment and training necessary to safely clean all types of chimneys throughout La Jolla and greater San Diego County. There are two main reasons this work is so important:
1. Removes flammable creosote to help reduce the chance of a chimney fire
Most chimney fires in the U.S. each year are started by creosote in the chimney flue. This substance builds up when smoke condenses during fireplace use.
2. Removes tree debris, small-animal nests and dead small animals, which could cause the chimney to draft poorly
A key concern here is carbon monoxide, a potentially dangerous gas that’s present in smoke. A narrowed flue can cause smoke and carbon monoxide to back up into the home.
