Experienced and very good at what they do. My new buck stove looks great and I was given good information before and after installation. The crew was polite and efficient.

Advance Chimney Sweeps has worked for me. They arrived early and finished the same day, cleaning out the chimney and declaring it safe for use. We had seen flashes in the chimney and they said that was dangerous. Thank God we have it fixed now.

I had a quote from another chimney company for $5000 to get my system working. I called Advance Chimney Sweeps and they did the job for far less that price. Now, my fire burns brightly with no fear of my chimney catching fire.

I was very pleased with the service from Advance Chimney Sweeps. The inspection and cleaning were very thorough. Jim explained everything in detail and provided options to address issues that were identified. We will be hiring them to complete the work to repair the chimney. Very satisfied.
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.
