Carytown Chimney Cleaning
If you have a wood-burning fireplace, then you know the issues with creosote. This flammable substance builds up every time you use your fireplace and must be cleaned out regularly to prevent damaging chimney fires.
Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps have the industry-grade equipment and hands-on skill to safely remove creosote from your chimney flue and restore it to safety. We clean chimneys throughout Richmond’s Carytown District year-round.
We also remove leaves, twigs, small-animal nests and other drafting obstructions from your flue. These obstructions can cause smoke to back up into your home and carry with it deadly carbon monoxide.
Chimney Repairs, Masonry Work & Chimney Rebuilding
Many things can cause the bricks and mortar of a chimney to become unsound. Cracks in the mortar, loose bricks, a shifting chimney structure – all these can lead to serious damage and water leaks.

CSIA-Certified Chimney Inspections
Annual chimney inspections at your Carytown neighborhood home can keep your chimney and fireplace in top shape and save you big money on extensive repair work down the line.
Our chimney inspectors hold certifications through the Chimney Safety Institute of America and are able to spot very early signs of damage or issues that could lead to significant problems. We perform all three recognized levels of chimney inspection.
Level 1: Basic inspection covering all visible areas of the chimney and its components.
Level 2: Performed when the home is being sold; after a chimney fire has happened; or when the system is being altered such as when adding a fireplace insert to a masonry fireplace. This inspection includes the use of video cameras to see down into the flue.
Level 3: Level 3 chimney inspections are necessary when a previous inspection uncovers serious damage or when serious damage is suspected. It often involves removing parts of the chimney and adjacent building materials of the home.
