Midtown Chimney Sweeps of Sandy


Midtown Chimney Sweeps is now in Sandy!

Why is chimney cleaning important?

Safety is our number one priority when it comes to our industry. Over time and usage, creosote builds up in your chimney or flue with each burn. This substance is highly flammable and when not cleaned regularly and properly, the chimney becomes a potential fire hazard.

What are the chimney inspection regulations in Sandy, UT?

Fireplace manufacturers and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) have different regulations depending on what type of fireplace or stove you own. It’s recommended factory-built fireplaces and masonry fireplaces get inspected annually and swept out when the buildup of soot reaches 1/8”. 

Bio-fuel pellet and wood stoves, on the other hand, should be swept and inspected every year. The warranty on your fireplace or stove may be voided if these regular chimney cleanings are not strictly followed.

Types of Inspections

There are three levels of chimney inspections recognized by the NFPA 211, but only two are widely performed.

The two levels include:

Level I –  a thorough visual scan of the exterior of the fireplace. This is most often adequate for annual inspections.

Level II – a visual scan and a live video scan of the interior of the chimney. This is done to look for damage or debris. It is required for realtors, property managers, and new homeowners as ownership changes.

Our additional services also include chimney and fireplace repairs, tuckpointing, liner installations and fireplace installations. Give us a call to learn more!
