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.

“Valley Chimney has been servicing my home in Oswego, IL for three years now. The first year they recommended a heat reflector and different wood grill. What a difference that made! Now we actually get some heat in the room instead of just the ambiance! They also fixed some issues with brick and helped me save a few dollars by telling me how to remove the gas line correctly to convert to wood only. If you want a pro servicing your chimney, these are the guys to call.”
