Chimney Sweeping in Columbus

Having your chimney properly cleaned (swept) once a year is one of the smartest things you can do to ensure its safety and performance. During a chimney sweeping job, our trained crews use commercial-grade tools and equipment to accomplish two very important things:

1. Remove flammable creosote

This is the substance that causes the majority of reported chimney fires each year in the Columbus area. A byproduct of smoke condensation, creosote builds up every time you burn wood in your fireplace. It can be sticky, flaky, puffy or solid, the latter of which is particularly dangerous.

The Chimney Guys specializes in dealing with all types of creosote.

2. Remove buildups of twigs, leaves, small animal nests and other debris

Incoming debris can block a chimney’s ability to draft and send deadly carbon monoxide and other combustion gases into your home.

While chimney sweeping will temporarily solve a debris problem, the way to permanently solve it is with a quality chimney cap, which blocks the top of the chimney and keeps rain and debris out.

Chimney sweeping should only be performed by experienced technicians with the training and tools required to do the job correctly. There’s no substitute for professional chimney cleaning when it comes to ultimate safety and performance.

Columbus Chimney Inspections

Another way we help our Columbus customers is with licensed chimney inspections. During a basic (Level 1) inspection, we can spot early signs of damage or malfunction and make necessary repairs right away.

Potential chimney problems cover everything from masonry issues and smoke chamber irregularities to cracked chimney crowns and unseated flashing. We’ll find out what’s wrong and get it fixed fast.

We also provide real estate inspections (Level 2) as part of the home-sale process. These and other more-involved inspections feature video imaging that lets us see down into the inside of your chimney flue.

If you use a gas fireplace, let our technicians maintain it once a year by inspecting the gas lines, pilot light, fittings and pipes, gas logs, venting system and overall operational efficiency. We’ll make sure your gas fireplace has a clean bill of health.

Our inspection work follows the guidelines of the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), through which some of our technicians hold advanced certifications and training. We know your Columbus chimney, and we know how to keep it working at its best.
