A Chimney Cleaner, or more commonly know as a Chimney Sweep, is a person whose job it is to remove the creosote or other buildup in a chimney’s flue to prevent hazardous, unwanted fires and to aid in the efficiency of your chimney’s function. There was only one Dick VanDyke and we can assure you that you’ll want our sweeps to refrain from any sort of song and dance.

And while we may refrain from song and dance, we will take the responsibility of ensuring you can be entertained by safe and enjoyable fires in your fireplace/chimney. It is of great importance to ensure that your Chimney Sweep is certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), proficient in industry regulated cleaning standards and proper inspection practices of your chimney.

The sweeps at Brick + Ember Outfitters are all certified by the CSIA and are prepared to address any chimney-related concerns which may arise during an assessment of your chimney or fireplace.

Industry professionals do recommend a chimney be swept and inspected, at least once, annually. The safety and functionality of your chimney is extremely relevant and important to the safety of your home and family.
