To get the most out of your stove or fireplace, you need to make sure that your chimney or ventilation system is clean and operating efficiently. Here’s how we can help.
Annual chimney cleaning is important for two reasons:
- Every time you burn wood in your fireplace, creosote develops within the flue. This substance is highly flammable and is responsible for most chimney fires in the U.S. each year
- Flue obstructions such as animal nests, dead animals, leaves, twigs and general debris cause smoke to draft inefficiently. When this happens, smoke and carbon monoxide easily can back up into your home and create a health risk.
Fluesbrothers chimney sweeps are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America and have years of hands-on experience and technical knowledge to perform a safe and thorough cleaning of your chimney. With the right tools and techniques, we can bring you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your chimney is clean and safe to operate.
A chimney inspection often turns up blockages and creosote buildup within the flue. Inspections also pinpoint the source and cause of leaky chimneys, damaged chimney components and compromises to the chimney’s bricks and mortar. Professional chimney inspections allow you to discover damage in its early stages and get it repaired quickly before significant – and expensive – problems occur. We perform year-round chimney inspections in Prairie Village, KS, and all surrounding areas.

Have you noticed crumbling mortar around the outside of your chimney? Are bricks becoming loose? Are cracks appearing in the masonry? It may be time for chimney masonry work to prevent this damage from progressing. Our NFI-certified technicians are masters of masonry work and are on call for any type of repair project you require.
If your chimney has suffered significant damage, chimney rebuilding may be in order. Whether the damage was caused by a weather event or just normal old age, we can perform complete or partial chimney rebuilding to fix a chimney that’s leaning to one side or from which bricks are falling away.
Is a new fireplace, stove or fireplace insert something that’s been on your mind? Before you buy, let us help you determine which style, model and heating efficiency would best meet your needs.

If your clothes dryer vent is clogged, it makes your machine work twice as hard to dry your clothes, meaning more frequent repairs and parts replacements. An obstructed vent also costs you a lot more money to operate the appliance. Our certified dryer exhaust technicians are ready to thoroughly clean your vent and restore your dryer’s powerful performance.
