The Importance of Chimney Sweeping

At its core, chimney sweeping is all about safety and efficiency. Over time, burning and usage of your fireplace generates a build-up of soot, debris, and creosote (with wood-burning applicances) along the inner walls of the chimney. If this build-up is not addressed, it will drastically reduce your chimney efficiency and, more critically, increase the risk of a chimney fire. 

Regular chimney sweeping is vital for:

Fire Safety: 

Over time, creosote and soot build up inside your chimney. These substances are highly flammable and can cause dangerous chimney fires if not removed regularly.’

Efficient Heating:

A clean chimney allows your fireplace to burn more efficiently, providing better heat output and saving you money on fuel.

Preventing Blockages:

 Debris such as leaves, twigs, and even animal nests can block your chimney, preventing proper ventilation and causing smoke to enter your home.

 Extending Chimney Life:

At Midtown Chimney, we want your Chimney to last a lifetime, while saving you money. Regular cleaning and maintenance can extend the lifespan of your chimney, reducing the need for costly repairs or replacements.

In addition to chimney cleaning, we offer comprehensive fireplace cleaning services. Keeping your fireplace clean is essential for both safety and aesthetics. Choosing Midtown Chimney Sweeps means opting for over 40 years of experience in our industry and professional, courteous service every single time!

Our Fireplace Cleaning services include, but not limited to:

Ash and Soot Removal:

We remove built-up ash and soot from the firebox, preventing blockages and reducing unpleasant odors.

Glass Door Cleaning:

 If your fireplace has glass doors, we clean them thoroughly to remove soot and smoke stains, ensuring a clear view of the fire.

Grate and Andiron Cleaning:

We clean and inspect the grate and andirons, ensuring they are free of debris and in good condition.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s recommended to have your chimney swept at least once a year, preferably before the start of the heating season. If you use your fireplace frequently, you may need more frequent cleanings.

The fire departments across America refer to the NFPA 211 (the code book for solid fuel-burning appliances). This code requires the annual inspection and cleaning of all fireplaces, wood stoves, pellet stoves, and chimneys.

A few signs your chimney needs cleaning include a strong smoky odor, poor draft (smoke entering your home), visible soot or creosote buildup, and reduced fire performance. Don’t hesitate to give us a call if anything seems off about your chimney or fireplace!

Very prompt service. Levi was very professional, knowledgeable, and very good with the explanation of what needed to be done. I was very fortunate it was a small problem, and Levi was able to do the work/sealing the same day he came out to inspect the problem. Would highly recommend Midtown Chimney .
I’m new to town. Midtown Sweeps was came highly recommended, and I can see why. Doug was courteous, careful and clean(up’s). We have two chimneys that need a lot of work (inserts, etc). I look forward to seeing the work completed and will be posting again soon.

I had an issue with my fireplace after my roof was replaced and a part fell down. The team helped determine what the issue was, came to my house in a timely manner and fixed the issue. The team took great care for my house, laying down a sheet, cleaning up the fireplace and making it look better then before. They also were very helpful in explaining each step of the process and were very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend.

A few weeks ago when we had the 2 days of heavy rain, I noticed water coming into my fireplace from the chimney flue. Midtown and Daniel came out the next day to inspect the chimney and and see why the water was leaking in. Turns out the mortar on the crown of the chimney was cracked pretty bad and two of my three were not covered. Worked with me and gave me an excellent price to get a multi cap, put on the entire chimney and also seal all the cracks. Within a week from the time I called Midtown the repairs were done. The multi cap was installed, it was a great price and I would highly recommend. to use midtown. Excellent work, fast, very fair price, and Daniel was very friendly and easy to work with.
Response from the owner: That's wonderful, thank you Allen! We appreciate you taking the time to share your positive experience with Daniel! We're glad we were able to help you with your leaky chimney in a timely matter! Thank you again and please don't hesitate to reach out if anything is ever needed! :)-The Midtown Chimney Team🎩

We had some leaking in our chimney and needed to get our cap replaced. Mason came by for the initial inspection and let me know the situation and provided an easy to understand explanation on options. I was given updates on the timing of ordering parts and scheduled the work to repair soon thereafter. Mason came back to do the repair and calmly handled the situation where I may have created some stress -.-. Thanks for the speedy and quality work!
Response from the owner: Thank you for sharing your positive experience with Mason, Tyger! We always try our best to communicate every step of the way for ease of mind!

Right from the initial consultation, we were impressed by the knowledge and helpfulness from the team. There was absolutely NO PRESSURE. The fireplace insert is absolutely stunning! Can't wait to cozy up by the fire this winter! We highly recommend them!
Response from the owner: Wonderful thank you Stephanie!- Byron and Midtown Installation Team
Mason did a fabulous job today servicing our wood burning stove including climbing up on our steeply pitched roof. He also cleaned another wood burning stove for us earlier in the winter and, again, did a wonderful job. We will for sure call Mason again to inspect and clean our wood burning stoves.
Response from the owner: Wow, thanks so much for this positive review, Michelle! Mason rocks and we're glad you think so too! Looking forward to connecting again and servicing your wood stoves in the future! Thanks again!-The Midtown Chimney Team🎩

My family has a cabin above Boulder. When we came into ownership of the cabin we discovered that the stove and stove installation/stovepipe were very out of code. I looked around for a company to replace and install a new woodstove and decided to go with Midtown Chimney Fireplace. I sent them pictures of my cabin which has a really steep roof and they built an estimate and sent it to me by email. The estimate was comprehensive and easy to understand and when I had a question about it I was able to make a phone call and talk to a human on the other end of the line. I clicked the red approve quote button, paid the deposit, and then they scheduled the work. First they staged the product a few days in advance and then came right on time to do the installation work. Our home was as clean and in as good a shape after they installed the new stove as before.When the new stove was installed there was a small leak near their work area which they addressed promptly. There were no problems with the stove, installation and outside air kit that was necessary to comply with local codes. We love the way it looks!One year later we still couldn't be happier. Thanks Midtown Chimney Services!
Response from the owner: Thank you Karina, all the best on the new roof. If you need us we are a phone call or a text message away!-The Midtown Chimney and Fireplace Store team
We reached out to get our chimney cleaned and capped.Jon was very responsive an excellent! He addressed all of our concerns promptly. I was impressed by his commitment to honoring the old quote since we didn't have any changes in the scope of work. His work was efficient and solid, leaving us with a clean and properly capped chimney. I highly recommend this company for the professionalism and quality of service.
Response from the owner: Wow, thank you so much Sarah! We really appreciate you taking the time to write this positive review and will definitely pass it along to Jon. We agree, Jon rocks! Looking forward to helping you again with any chimney needs! Thanks again for your recommendation and please take care! :)-The Midtown Chimney Team🎩
