Chimney Sweep Services
One of our primary jobs is chimney sweeping. We use a variety of industry-grade tools and equipment to remove flammable creosote and drafting obstructions from chimney flues.
Built-up creosote is responsible for most chimney fires reported in the San Clemente area and across the U.S. each year. We’ll safely remove this substance.
We also remove leaves, twigs, the nests of small animals and the animals themselves when they die inside the chimney. All this debris can hinder drafting and send smoke and deadly carbon monoxide into your San Clemente home.
Fire safety agencies throughout the country recommend annual chimney sweeping for active chimneys.
By scheduling yearly chimney inspections, you’ll be able to learn of early signs of damage and malfunction in the system. A licensed inspection is one of your best preventative maintenance strategies.
Chimney Sweeps Inc. provides all three recognized levels of chimney inspection:
Level 1: The basic annual inspection.
Level 2: Called for when:
- You’re selling your home
- A chimney fire or other event is believed to have caused damage
- You’re altering your system, such as by adding a gas insert or furnace to the chimney
Level 3: The required inspection when major chimney damage is known to exist.
