A clean chimney is a safe chimney. Fluesbrothers’ certified chimney technicians have the specialized tools and skills to thoroughly remove creosote and obstructions from your chimney to reduce the chances of a chimney fire and allow smoke and toxins to draft properly.
Creosote is a flammable substance that is created when wood burns. It is responsible for most chimney fires in the U.S. each year. Excess creosote not only can become fuel for a fire, it also can narrow the air passage in your flue and make it difficult for smoke to move up and out of the chimney.
Obstructions such as leaves, twigs, general debris, small-animal nests and animals who die inside the chimney can accumulate inside the flue to the point that smoke and dangerous carbon monoxide back up into your home and create a health risk. This can be prevented with annual chimney cleaning.
Regular chimney inspections will turn up early signs of damage within your chimney system and allow you to address issues before they turn into expensive repair projects. A thorough chimney inspection covers all components such as the chimney cap, flue liner and damper as well as the bricks and mortar of the chimney structure. Our inspectors are meticulous in checking out every inch of your chimney. They use their years of hands-on experience to spot problems and recommend solutions so that your chimney and fireplace run safely and at peak efficiency.
If you have a leaky chimney, it’s important to determine where the leak is coming from and get it repaired quickly. Water eventually can cause bricks and mortar to crack and fall apart, which can lead to a house fire.

Count on our expertise to restore strength and stability to your chimney and save you from having to pay for expensive repairs down the line.
In cases where a chimney is significantly damaged, complete or partial chimney rebuilding may be necessary. Weather events, house-settling, years of intense heat from the fireplace and normal aging all can lead to a compromise in your chimney structure. No matter the extent of the damage, our chimney experts can perform the necessary rebuilding work to make any chimney safe and functional again.
When it’s time to shop for a new fireplace, stove or fireplace insert, we’re happy to help you choose the ideal model that will meet your heating needs and aesthetic requirements. Once you’ve purchased your appliance, our skilled installation technicians can set it up where you want it and make sure it’s safe and efficient for years of enjoyment.
Clothes dryer vents often become so clogged that the machine must work overtime to do its job. This causes excess wear and tear on moving parts and extends the drying cycle, which adds to your utility bills.
