What is a “chimney sweep”?

A chimney sweep performs three basis functions when called upon to service a chimney system. First, the sweep thoroughly cleans the system. After the cleaning process, the sweep performs a complete visual inspection of the chimney and heating system. The sweep also takes steps to educate the consumer on the proper use of their heating and chimney system. Chimney sweeps are called upon on a regular basis to inspect chimney systems for the sale of a home, to document an insurance claim or to repair a chimney system to bring it up to safe working standards. There are times that even we will refuse to clean a chimney system because of the blatant safety hazards that exist.

“We had Valley Chimney Sweeps out to check out a cracked firebox on a home we were considering purchasing.  They were honest & upfront about the condition of the chimney, what would need to be repaired, and what future repairs would look like (the chimney was built incorrectly).  Price for inspection was reasonable and if we choose to have the work done, the inspection payment is considered a prepayment toward the repairs.”
