Frequently Asked Questions
What services do you offer?
We offer a variety of chimney services including chimney cleaning, chimney repairs, chimney liner installations, chimney cap installations, and more. Our goal is to keep your chimney clean and in proper working condition so you can safely use your fireplace.
How often should I clean my chimney?
As a general guideline, most chimneys need cleaning once a year. However, if you use your fireplace frequently or burn very dirty wood, your chimney may need more frequent cleanings. It's best to inspect your chimney each time you start using your fireplace for the season and schedule a professional cleaning if creosote or soot buildup is visible.
What is included in a professional chimney cleaning?
Our professional chimney cleaning includes: removing creosote buildup from the chimney flue, inspecting the flue for cracks or damage, cleaning the firebox, removing debris from the damper area, and capping off the top of the chimney after cleaning to prevent pest and rain entry. We will also provide a report on the chimney's overall condition and note any repairs that may be needed.
How do I schedule a chimney cleaning?
To schedule a chimney cleaning, please call us at (619) 900-6640 or visit our website at www.sweeps.com. We are available 7 days a week year-round.

What should I expect from a professional cleaning?
Our certified chimney technicians will arrive prepared with all the necessary cleaning equipment. The technician will inspect the chimney cap and roof flashing first before accessing the flue from inside. You can expect to see loose creosote debris removed from the flue and firebox. Upon completion, we will show you pictures of the before and after cleaning. The technician will also explain further maintenance tips before leaving to keep your chimney safe.
