Putting off a chimney cleaning could have a very bad outcome. Just over the past two weeks alone, we have seen 2 chimney fires because of deferred chimney cleaning. Unfortunately, one home was a complete loss. Nothing was left except one-half of the chimney and the concrete pad.
Some fires are not completely started by the chimney. Sparks popping out onto carpet or items around the fireplace catch fire quickly. We strongly suggest the fireplace has a tight screen. Also, keep flammable items away from the opening.
Pull out your calendar and call us to schedule an inspection. Procrastination is not your friend when it comes to chimney cleaning. Your family deserves a clean and safe fire place. Also, the off season is easier to book a chimney sweep job. Plus, there are coupons that will help with the cost of the inspection.
Locally owned family businesses rely on reviews and testimonials for the life blood of their business. We are so thankful for our customers! Just today, another 5 star review came in from the Clear Chimney Yelp page.
Every great review and testimonial tells us we are making a difference in the lives of others. Isn’t that what we are put on the earth to do? So often, the heating fireplaces or wood stoves are the only source of heat for people. When the nightly temperatures get below freezing, we make sure our customers are safe and warm.
We don’t want to brag. That is truly not us. We understand the best way to grow and stay in business is through friends and family of happy customers. It is very expensive (and not as productive) to spend loads of money advertising. Usually, the only people that benefit from this marketing are the advertisers.
Many potential customers tell us that they like to research a company before calling anyone for service. What do they research? A clean and easy website with good information is first. Second, they want to know what others think about the company. We call this the Amazon effect. They started the wide spread use of reviews and testimonials for products.
Our customers love to tell others about their experiences, good and not so good. Clear Chimney’s testimonial page has many different types of reviews from many different sources. We don’t cherry pick a particular review for a certain service.
We offer chimney sweeping, chimney cleaning, fireplace inserts, chimney caps, gas logs installed and serviced, and much, much more. Therefore, our reviews should indicate the happiness of our customers.

Cameras used in chimney inspections are often cited as the reason the price for a chimney sweep is so high. Here is the truth about cameras. The technology is absolutely amazing. Marry up the old plumber camera with the new wi-fi cloud storage systems and this is a vital addition to your chimney’s analysis.
Now, home buyers demand a complete chimney cleaning to sell a home. The next level in peace of mind is a camera view into the chimney system. Better yet, the pictures and video are saved to a file for email or cloud storage. Tip – ask your insurance company if this inspection lowers the rate for homeowner insurance.
Here are the advantages to using a chimney camera as part of a platinum chimney cleaning service. First, you will avoid the fly-by-night folks that offer a chimney sweep scam. These companies will not invest the money for a high quality camera to use in the inspection. These cameras are several thousands of dollars in cost. So, yes, there are folks that are using the camera to boost the prices of their sweep. The fact is an honest, reliable chimney sweep company will simply use a camera as another tool to a better service to their customers.
The second advantage is the tight spaces these cameras can see. They will identify small gaps in the bricks and transitions. Therefore, this allows for a fix before the problem gets out of control.
What do fire professionals think about chimney inspections?
Recently, we discussed the chimney inspections with a member of the Roane County TN fire department in our home area. He pointed out that several houses just recently burned down due to a build up in creosote. These homeowners had no idea that the chimneys were in critical need of an inspection.
Finally, many homes can be saved if we can get the word out about the Platinum Chimney Sweep Service using a camera for inspection. Call us today and ask about the sweep service with our camera. Peace of mind is simply a phone or text message away.
