CHIMNEY CLEANING & MORE IN BALTIMORE, MD
ALSO SERVING THE MONTGOMERY COUNTY AND WASHINGTON, DC, AREA
As a homeowner, we know that you want to do everything in your power to protect your investment, and more importantly, your family and pets. Annual chimney inspections and subsequent chimney cleanings play a vital role in preventing residential chimney fires, carbon monoxide intrusion and other chimney related hazards that can result in death or property loss.
The primary function of your chimney is to carry dangerous flue gases from your fireplace, wood stove or furnace safely out of your home. Without proper maintenance, dirty chimneys can cause destructive and deadly fires. Chimney fires burn explosively and produce a low rumbling sound that reminds some homeowners of a freight train or a low flying airplane.
Our chimney professionals are trained to identify and fix potentially unsafe conditions that could lead to a dangerous or unhealthy environment inside your home. We employ an exclusive 12-point chimney inspection checklist and perform Level 2 inspections as a baseline.
We will use the ChimScan® camera when it’s needed, providing the most detailed analysis commercially available today. At the end of your chimney inspection, our team will happily review the findings of our comprehensive 12-point checklist with you.

Because of the dangers associated with chimney fires and carbon monoxide intrusion, it is recommended that you have your chimney inspected and cleaned by a professional at least once a year. Seasonal chimney inspections are also recommended to ensure that there is a safe barrier from pests and that no animals have built nests in the flue or otherwise disrupted the structure. The National Fire Protection Association Standard states that:
“Chimneys, fireplaces and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance and repairs shall be done if necessary.”
