Homeowners in Richmond’s Fan District, which runs from Belvedere St. near Monroe Park to the eastern section of the Boulevard, want the very best in comfort, safety and beauty for their homes. Though there are many architectural home designs and layouts here, one thing many Fan residents have in common is the need for regular chimney and fireplace services.
Fan-neighborhood homes within the Virginia Commonwealth University campus area are set in the perfect place to enjoy all of what downtown Richmond has to offer from live music, unique dining experiences and old-style barbershops to bike-sharing, walking tours and year-round events.
Part of enjoying living in the Fan District is keeping your chimney and fireplace running safely and efficiently. That’s where Chimney Saver Solutions comes in.

Certified Chimney Sweep & Chimney Cleaning Services
Fan District homeowners with wood-burning fireplaces should have their chimneys cleaned once a year to remove flammable creosote. This substance builds up within the chimney flue when fires are burned and is the cause of most chimney fires in the U.S. each year.
Our CSIA-certified technicians use a variety of scrapers, scrubbers, electronic brushes and cleaning solvents to safely remove creosote from your flue and reduce the chance of a chimney fire.
We also remove drafting obstructions such as small-animal nests, animals who have died inside the flue, tree debris and general air debris. These items cause smoke to draft improperly and can send deadly carbon monoxide back into your home when your fireplace is in use.
Fan Neighborhood Chimney Inspections
Chimney Saver Solutions serves customers with year-round chimney inspections. By having your chimney inspected annually, you can save huge money on expensive and complicated repair work down the line.
Basic chimney inspections cover all the visible areas of the chimney structure including the bricks and mortar, chimney crown, chimney cap and other components. Inspections should be scheduled even if no known damage exists. If you have a chimney leak or have had a chimney fire, an inspection should be performed before using your fireplace again.
