When our NFI-certified chimney cleaning professionals visit your home to work on your chimney, there are two primary objectives:
- Remove flammable creosote to reduce the chances of a flue fire
- Remove obstructions such as leaves, twigs, small-animal nests and any dead animals to ensure a smooth path for smoke and toxins to exit your fireplace.
The majority of chimney fires every year are caused by the creosote that the homeowners failed to have removed from their flues. Avoid this by having us perform thorough annual chimney sweep services.
Obstructions in the flue can cause smoke – and worse, carbon monoxide – to enter the home and create a serious health risk. When we clean your chimney, you can say goodbye to this potential problem.
The reason regular Level I and Level II chimney inspections are so important is that it’s impossible for the average homeowner to gauge the state of a chimney just by looking at it. Our chimney technicians are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and have extensive experience in determining where and how repairs need to be made.
A professional chimney inspection covers all the components from the chimney cap to the fireplace damper as well as the interior and exterior chimney structure itself. With regular inspections, we can initiate basic repairs as your chimney ages to prevent very expensive repairs that are sure to be needed if the chimney is neglected.
A leaky chimney is a common reason we’re called out to homes throughout the greater Kansas City, MO/Kansas City, KS area. Water on the floor of the firebox, white staining on the chimney’s exterior and a smelly chimney are some of the signs that you may have a chimney leak.

For all your chimney repair needs, the Fluesbrothers experts are standing by and ready to help.
No matter how sturdy a chimney is when first constructed, over time it can begin to show signs of age and wear. Water often damages chimney masonry by seeping into cracks and causing erosion. House-settling can lead to cracks in mortar joints. Extreme weather events are known to result in masonry damage. Our certified technicians are masters at chimney masonry work and can perform the necessary repairs to restore new life to your chimney and keep it running strong for many years.
If your chimney is suffering from severe damage, chimney rebuilding may be necessary. A seriously compromised chimney structure is dangerous to live around. Large sections of missing mortar provide a perfect path for water to enter the system in large amounts and cause extensive damage. When basic masonry repairs aren’t enough, we perform complete or partial chimney rebuilding to restore your chimney to a safe operational state.
