Chimney Sweep
English Sweep
uses the most up-to-date equipment that allows the Chimney Sweep to remove hazardous quantities of creosote from fireplace flues. Our diagnostic camera fits inside masonry flues to find potential hazards the naked eye can't detect. Maintaining the flue system each year will reduce the possibility of flue fires and deterioration.












air duct maintenanceAir Duct Maintenance
We use the Meyer's General, one of the most powerful vacuum systems marketed, along with hoses that snake through the vents of the living quarters filled with compressed air, sweeping dust and debris from air ducts. We also deodorize and sanitize the ductwork after cleaning. This provides help that may relieve symptoms of asthma, allergies and other respiratory ailments.

Dryer Vent 
Connectors collect large amounts of lint and fabric, causing potential back up of carbon monoxide gases, increased condensation and fires. We remove this lint and debris to assist in keeping the home and family protected from these hazards.

Each year we service over 3,000 homes. We will provide references, lien waivers and certificates of insurance upon request.

We encourage our clients to include an annual chimney sweeping and inspection with their other yearly home maintenance projects. An annual chimney inspection by a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep® can significantly reduce the danger of chimney fires or carbon monoxide poisoning in your home. Our technicians are highly trained, and the modest price far outweighs the risk of smoke, fire or carbon monoxide damage.
