Came and swept chimney, cleaned out firebox, oiled screen and damper, swept flue, inspected and made a minor crack repair. He explained how to properly use the fireplace, told me to use oak and pecan woods, showed me how to stack the logs to get faster burn. Also explained draft problems and what to do if there is smoke or a chimney fire. He was very good, clean and knowledgeable. Also, he let me know that he could repair any problems withe the fireplace, chase, crown and roofing around chimney. I felt very confident I got the right company!

Type of Chimney: Pre-fabfirm: Dr. Clean Sweep Chimney Service
The workers were very professional when they came to my home. The workers were dressed in clothing stating the company name and even wore top hats, to my surprise! They made no mess in my home, laying out drop cloths and explained to me exactly what would be happening during the cleaning process. I was very impressed with the professionalism and quality of service. The man even offered a repeat customer discount for next year!

They were not the cheapest but were recommended by a friend. After I had the other guys in the fall, WHAT A DIFFERENCE.
Clean, courteous and oh so helpful
Found out why my chimney smoked sometimes and how often I should sweep, what type of wood to burn.AND how to build the perfect fire.
The extra cost was much worth it

Had chimney cap replaced
Amount: $150.00
Posted by: Edy in Clarksville, TN.Posted: May 12th, 2007 10:05AM
Type of Chimney: prefabfirm:
He took all of 5-10 minutes to replace the chimney cap but left one of the side walls off. Now a bird has made a nest and sticks and grass from the nest is falling down my flue into the fireplace.The bird sounds like he's in the flue and is driving my dogs and me crazy. I don't know why he did't replace the sidewall or remove the other three. Is this standard practice? It's been a little over a month since he did the job. I've tried contacting him several times over the last three weeks leaving messages on his machine to call me, but haven't gotten any response. I feel I was robbed and at this point I'm considering filing a complaint to the BBB in my area. Before they leave your property make sure every thing is done, cause you probably won't see them again. I would $150.00 is way not worth the job he did on my chimney.

Paid $80, but it probably wasn't necessary

Type of Chimney: normalfirm: Chimney Safe
The house got smoky when we used the fireplace, so I called Chimney Safe, which was recommended locally. Their price was the same as the other places I called -- $80 for a basic 1 story ranch house. After the sweep, they said they chimney wasn't too dirty and another sweep wouldn't be needed after a cord of wood. When I asked about the smoke, they said the flue was clear and the cause was probably inadequate ventilation. The guy suggested putting bricks under the fireplace screen, so enough air flows into the fireplace, pulling the smoke out the flue. At least the chimney got all vacuumed and nice and clean.
