What We Bring To The Table

Improved safety

A dirty chimney can be a fire hazard, as built-up creosote and debris can ignite and cause a chimney fire. By regularly inspecting your chimney, you can reduce the risk of a fire and ensure the safety of your home and family.

Increased efficiency

A clean chimney allows for better airflow, which can improve the efficiency of your fireplace or wood stove. This can save you money on your energy bills and help you heat your home more effectively.

Extended lifespan

Regular chimney cleaning can help extend the lifespan of your chimney by removing harmful substances that can cause damage over time. This can save you money on costly repairs or replacements down the road.

But we don’t just stop at cleaning your chimney. Our technicians will also inspect your firebox for any damage, which could make your home vulnerable to ambient heat. We’ll also check the brickwork of your chimney for cracks and integrity. Even a small crack can lead to crumbling brick, but with our repair services, we’ll have the right tools to fix the problem.

Our Process

Step 1
Fireproofing & Waterproofing Check
Chimney Inspection

Our team will use a snake camera with a detachable screen to carefully check that your chimney and fireplace are fireproof and the exterior part of your chimney is waterproof. This includes checking the bricks, mortar and other materials used in the construction of your chimney, as well as assessing the condition of the chimney lining. 

Step 2
Chimney Flue Inspection
Chimney Flue Inspection

We'll examine the chimney flue using the snake camera with a detachable screen, which will allow you and us to see if there's any damage to the chimney flue. We'll make sure that your chimney flue is creosote free and crack-free. We'll also look for any downdraft issues that might cause flow problems.

Step 3
Firebox Inspection
Firebox Inspection

We'll thoroughly inspect the firebox (where the fire is burned) to ensure that it's in good condition, checking for any cracks or damage that might compromise its safety and integrity. We'll make sure that the firebox is properly sealed and that there are no signs of wear or tear that could put you and your family at risk.

Step 4
Roof Inspection
Roof Inspection

If accessible, we'll get on the roof and thoroughly inspect the flashing, cap, chase, crown, and brickwork. Flashing is the metal that surrounds the chimney and prevents water from entering the home. The cap, chase, and crown prevent rain, snow, and animals from entering the chimney. 

Step 5
Drone Inspection

 Our state-of-the-art drone is equipped with a 4K high-resolution camera and advanced navigation technology, allowing for detailed inspections of even the hardest-to-reach chimneys. The footage captured by the drone can be easily analyzed and shared with homeowners. *In the case of 1 story homes, we'll inspect by foot.

Step 6

Our team of experienced technicians will take the time to walk you through the entire inspection process, ensuring that you have a full understanding of any issues that may be present in your chimney or fireplace. We'll explain in detail any problems that are found, providing you with a clear understanding of what needs to be done to address them.

Step 7
Repair Estimate
Repair Estimate

If any repairs are needed, we'll provide you with an estimate on the spot, listing all the necessary repairs and their associated costs. We'll also explain the urgency of each repair, so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed. We have no intention to waist you money! Only the urgent repairs will be recommended.

Step 8
Timeframe & Cost
Measuring fireplace panels

The inspection process for your fireplace will take approximately 30 minutes. Once the inspection is complete, we will provide you with an estimate for the work that needs to be done. If you approve the estimate, our team will begin the work right away, ensuring that your fireplace is ready for use as soon as possible.

How Often Should I Clean My Chimney?
