Notes

  bullet  
Procedure varies somewhat for freestanding stoves and stove inserts, but the emphasis is still on being thorough with the sweeping and evaluation, and keeping the area clean!
   
  bullet  
We will only sweep a stove insert if the flue pipe goes all the way to the top of the chimney!
   
  bullet  
Some chimney tops can be inaccessible either due to steep roofs or fragile tile.
   
  bullet  
Always have your chimney system swept and inspected by a professional chimney sweep.
   
  bullet  
We reserve the right to refuse any job that we feel does not comply with proper Listings, Codes or guidelines that pertain to the system's construction as well as clearances to combustibles -- especially with stoves and prefab fireplaces, this is regardless of whether the installation was approved by ANY authority prior to our visit.
