Alaska's Chimney Service
Just had both woodstove chimney pipe and boiler pipe cleaned and was very impressed with their service, efficiency, thoroughness, cleanliness. The company also does the type of inspections needed for real estate transactions. Definitely consider them before some other companies - I had mine done three years ago by a Fairbanks Company (FSC) who in my opinion left a mess, did amateurish work and not a thorough job -- which is why I reached out to another company. Alaska Chimney Service was highly recommended and I am highly pleased.

Firesafe Chimney Service
Firesafe is the company to go to for professional chimney cleaning service. They clean and inspect my wood stove chimney every winter. What I like is they are CSIA and NFI certified which tells you they follow strict standards.

Tips & Advices
As part of regular home maintenance, you can look for signs up build-up or debris accumulating in a fireplace. n addition to practicing safe wood burning and cleaning the in-home structure, you can also use a flashlight on occasion to inspect for any obvious cracks or blockage. Strong smells emanating from the fireplace when not in use may be an indication of the need to consult with a professional who can handle the broader inspection and any major issues that arise from it.
It can be dangerous not to have your chimney inspected from the interior, since only a licensed professional can detect things like creosote build-up or a defective damper. Failing to address such issues can, at the very least, reduce the efficiency of airflow within your home, and at worst, lead to a fire.
Most inspectors are called chimney cleaning professionals these days, but the term chimney sweep traditionally refers to the person who evaluates the flue, damper and roof, and then cleans them from the inside. A certified chimney sweep will also inspect your fireplace and the room in which it operates, checking for any structural inefficiencies or signs of leakage. When looking to hire a chimney cleaner, it’s best to seek one who is certified by the CSIA or NCSG.
A chimney flue is essentially a duct that runs from the fireplace to the top of the chimney, helping convey the gas and heat out of the home. It must be properly sealed in order to protect the home and withstand the exhaust that passes through.
The damper is the device that seals the chimney shut when it is not in use. It usually operates as a small flap inside the flue, helping retain warm air and insulate the home, even when there is no fire going.
