The primary function of a chimney is to direct smoke away from your home. Without a chimney, smoke residue, embers, and soot would clog your indoor space.

- Cleaning: Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning and improve your home’s heating efficiency with professional cleaning. We utilize professional-grade cleaning tools to remove creosote and other buildups to restore your chimney for full functionality. We’ll also clean out your smoke chamber and vacuum your firebox.
- Inspections: Your chimney is open to the elements that can lead to significant damage. We provide inspections for masonry fireplaces, prefab fireplaces, gas fireplaces, and more to ensure your chimney is in tiptop shape.
