When you hire us, you can expect a firm appointment. Most initial service calls take 30-45 minutes to complete.

If we are any more than 15 minutes early or late, we call to confirm your ability to keep the appointment.

We place down clean drop cloths and run a vacuum system that controls the soot and dust, keeping it inside the firebox or woodstove.

We first determine if your system needs sweeping, then proceed with inspection afterwards.  So why is this service call needed?

Woodstoves with proper chimneys or liner systems need sweeping to remove creosote build up so that they operate properly,

If your woodstove does not have a proper chimney or liner system, or if it has other improper installation or clearances to combustibles, we document these findings and discuss with you what it would take to meet manufacturers installation instructions

We dont sweep your masonry fireplace chimney to make it safe, we sweep it so we can properly inspect it with a video device.

Once again, when we find original construction defects, chimney fire damage or man made alterations that do not meet codes and standards, we document and discuss options for repair, and or ways that you can continue to use your fireplace safely.

With Mrchimneyman, you will never be “scared” into needing repairs. I will tell you the real truth about your system.

Use my handy “Get started feature” when you are ready to proceed. I look forward to providing this service for you.
