Chimney Cleaning Keeps Your Home and Fireplace Safe


Chimney Cleaning Keeps Your Home and Fireplace Safe

Your chimney and stainless-steel liner require routine cleaning & maintenance to keep them running properly.  AES Hearth & Patio upholds all safety codes set forth by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA.)

We strongly encourage routine maintenance to be scheduled in the spring and summer months, and offer discounted rates at that time.  Backlogs for routine maintenance services can be 6-8 weeks during the winter months. Currently we are unable to accept new cleaning customers until February 2019.

We want to educate new customers who inquire about or request a chimney cleaning that we require a level 2 chimney inspection to be performed first to determine the condition of the chimney.   A level 2 inspection provides an in-depth analysis of the condition of the chimney, which may reveal hidden hazards, making the chimney unsafe to use.  Our Certified Chimney Professionals perform these inspections with a video scanner, examining internal joints for voids or cracks.  When we gain a new customer, we take seriously that if we begin to service your unit or chimney, it must first be safety compliant.  If it is not, we must bring your chimney or current unit installation up to code before we continue with any other service.   The cost of chimney inspections are $189.  If the chimney does not pass inspection, we will provide an estimate for any work needed for repairs.

Once everything passes inspection and meets code, we can then sweep your chimney year after year. You will receive a discounted rate if you schedule in the spring or summer months.  This includes a level 1 visual inspection as a part of that service.

Because we are a full-service fireplace and hearth retailer we understand the intricacies and requirements of each unit that we install and service, ensuring that all installs meet required safety codes. We have developed our expertise through years of installing and servicing our customers’ hearths, and we take care of your home as if it were our own.
