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.

I was looking to have a pellet stove installed in my home, there were many vendors out there for sure. After talking with the owner I decided to use Midtown Chimney Sweeps. I absolutley made the right choice. Thier team was professional, listened to my multiple questions and concerns. They made every effort to ensure that I was satisfied! The brand of stove that I chose was not up to par and Mike and Alice worked very closley with me to make it right. They went over and above with multiple visits, could not ask for better service or support. In the end I ended up with a better stove and the confidence that there is a good team behind it. Don't make the mistake of going elsewhere. They have a customer for life! Thank You!
Response from the owner: Wonderful, that's incredible to hear! Thank you, Jim! With Mike and Alice's expert knowledge, we're so happy to hear how satisfied you are with your new pellet stove! We really appreciate your continued business and for sharing your positive experience with us. Please take care!-The Midtown Chimney Team🎩

Byron and his team turned our 2 outdated fireplaces into modern and highly functional ones that we will use in years to come!!! They helped us figure out how to keep one wood burning (which we love) and converted the other into to a modern gas insert that is very easy to operate. We love them both! They also figured out how to make this work at a very affordable price, much lower than other quotes we had received.
Response from the owner: Thank you christina we appreciate your business!
Levi’s communication before, during, and after the appointment was fantastic. He took the extra time to explain to me the reason why behind recommendations and even talked me through his cleaning process. I felt very informed and I felt reassured by his knowledge. We will be hiring Levi in the future for all of our fireplace needs from maintenance to any repairs!!
Response from the owner: We appreciate you sharing your positive experience with us, Adam! Levi is pretty great and we're glad you felt reassured throughout the whole process! Thank you for your continued business and please take care! :)-The Midtown Chimney Team🎩

Eric has been very helpful and professional. After getting a bid from 2 more companies, we decided to work with Eric to fix a chimney . We're glad we did. Eric is knowledgeable at what he does and took his time to explain anything and everything we needed to know on how a fireplace and chimney works. He replaced a refractory panel, put a custom made chimney chase cover and tuckpointing masonry to fix a chimney leak. He came back multiple times to identify the source of a leak and fix it. We highly recommend Eric for any chimney and fireplace work.Zeke

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 .
Response from the owner: Wow, thanks so much for sharing your positive experience with us, Vickie! Levi rocks and we're so glad the issue was able to be addressed then and there! Thanks again for your time and recommendation! Please take care! -The Midtown Chimney Team🎩

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.
Response from the owner: Awesome, thanks so much for taking the time to share your positive experience with us, Sean! When the unexpected happens, we're happy to make the process clear, efficient and clean. Thanks again for your time and recommendation, take care! -The Midtown Chimney Team🎩

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🎩
Mason came to clean and inspect the chimney of our wood burning fire place. Also cleaned our dryer vent (long-overdue!). His work was professional and efficient. Definitely recommend.
