Why It’s Important to Service Your Chimney
Your fireplace, stove, and heating appliances provide warmth and many other benefits, and your chimney is working hard to ensure it’s being done safely. It captures and removes harmful gases, debris, and other byproducts, keeping your home and family safe. But over time, byproducts can build up in a chimney — forming creosote, a sometimes flaky, sometimes puffy, sometimes sticky but always highly-combustible residue — increasing the risk of blockages, damage, and fire. Cracks can form in chimneys too, allowing harmful gases to leak into your home. And without an inspection from a trained technician, you likely wouldn’t be aware of the problems.
Having your chimney properly inspected and serviced will help it do its job for a long time, and will give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re ensuring the health and safety of your home and family.
We’re There When You Need Us
We staff our offices Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. but offer 24-Hour Emergency Services, so we can be there whenever you need us.
If it’s after hours or on a holiday, or if your heat or hot water has been turned off and a heating system expert recommends that you contact a chimney sweep, call us. No matter the time or day, there will always be an on-call team to call you back.
What We Can Do For You
Our certified, licensed and insured chimney sweeps can take care of all your chimney service needs, large and small.
- Chimney Inspections and Sweeping – It’s recommended (by the National Fire Protection Association 211 code, the National Chimney Sweeping Guild, the Environmental Protection Agency, the American Lung Association, and us) to have a chimney inspection performed by a certified chimney sweep annually. We sweep every chimney we inspect and inspect every chimney we sweep.

- Repairs – Chimney/masonry repairs and relining, repointing/tuckpointing, crown and flashing repairs — Billy Sweet Chimney Sweep will find and repair any problem you may have, and do it right.
- Rebuilding – With over 30 years of experience, we can help when a chimney needs to be rebuilt, rather than repaired. Historical chimney rebuilds, hard-to-find bricks: No matter the circumstances, Billy Sweet Chimney Sweep can find what’s needed, pull permits, stage jobs — whatever it takes to get the job done right.
