Featured Reviews for Chimney Cleaners
SUPERIOR CHIMNEY SERVICES CORPORATION
Chimney Cleaners
"When I saw the other review, I just had to say something. I've used Superior Chimney for work done. They were professional, showed me detailed pictures and walked me through every one so I had a complete understanding of the work that needed to be done. Simply I cannot get to the roof, so the chimney on the roof came to me. Then when the work was time to get done, they came on time, were clean, showed me 'in progress' pictures, answered all my questions and did quite a superior job. They tuck pointed my chimney, cleaned up wonderfully and it looks great. Then on the inside, again, they were clean and respectful of my house and family room. There was nothing to clean up after them. This is what you can expect from them. I asked about training and system for doing work, they all were the same answer, which means a lot. It's not some are good chimney technicians, they all were. I'd hire them again in a second. Look at the work. It looks brand new, and it's not. Hope this helps if you're considering them to service your chimney and fireplace."

North Coast Masonry
Chimney Cleaners
"My name is Alex and I am a construction project manager in Chicago's Gold Coast. After I moved to Avon Lake, Ohio I realized that my home needed some masonry work. A friend of mine recommended me Tim Laurenti with North Coast Masonry to do the job because of his high quality outcome. I called Tim, we met, I told him my expectations, he told me the price. We made the deal, he finished the project as scheduled and as a result ... I am very very happy with the outcome! Excellent job! Tim and his crew are quality oriented guys. Honestly, if you need a masonry company for your project, I strongly recommend you to hire them. I met and saw a lot of companies in my experience. North Coast Masonry is one of my favorites for at least two reasons: high quality job and fair pricing. I trust Tim's company. It wasn't easy what they had to do in my project but they exceeded my expectations. For instance, besides the build up, they had to match existing, which any tradesman knows that is not easy. Well, Tim did his magic and the project came out really good. You cannot even point out where the repairs were made. That is not easy! Tim did it! Thank you, Tim! Thank you guys! You did a great job and it is my pleasure to recommend you!"

Their professional handliing of our chimney project started with prompt communication, a courteous appointment and a detailed proposal.

Soot Busters LLC
Chimney Cleaners
"We hired Soot Busters to install a new chimney liner and hook up a wood-burning stove. Despite many unforeseen issues, Ferdinand was always pleasant to work with and never tried to change the price. He did a great job and was very pleasant to work with. We would use them again in the future should any need arise."

Why do I need to hire a chimney cleaner?


Fireplace cleaning always seems like a messy task, and that’s because it is. Creosote, better known as soot, forms when wood is not properly burned — unburned tar vapors stick in the flue, or walls, and are tricky to clean but can lead to chimney fires if not taken care of. In fact, about a quarter of all residential fires that occur in the United States are caused by creosote buildup. That fact alone should motivate you hire a chimney sweep as soon as possible! Other common problems that a fireplace and chimney inspection should catch are damaged or decaying mortar and joints, leaks that let in air or water, and even animal extraction. Chimney repair is an important part of keeping your entire home safe and sound, so keep yours in tiptop shape to reap its benefits safely.

The Chimney Safety Institute of America actually certifies chimney sweeps, so you know if they are CSIA certified that they will do a good (and safe) job. It’s recommended that you get a full chimney inspection once a year at least, so don’t hesitate to call a chimney service at any point during the year if you suspect something is not quite right.
