Chimney Sweep Services Atlanta | The Fireplace Place

Hey! I’m Dawn Tapley. I’m with The Fireplace
Place. I’d like to talk to you briefly today about maintaining your chimney. This video will explain to you about when should you have your chimney swept and how to keep it
safe! We are glad that you chose to watch this video, because we would like to inform
you that the chimney sweep business is filled with predators using scare tactics to take
advantage of you. If someone says they will come service your chimney for $69, then they
do not have your best interest at heart. It requires hours of training, thousands of dollars
in insurance, and certifications to legitimately perform this type of service. Therefore, for
a legitimate company to perform this type of service, they would lose money at this
rate. Did you know that if an uninsured chimney sweep were to injure themselves while they
are on your property, you are liable? The National Fire Protection Association Standard
211 says, “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for
soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs
shall be done if necessary.” This is the national safety standard and is the correct way to
approach the problem. It takes into account the fact that even if you don’t use your chimney
much, animals may build nests in the flue or there may be other types of deterioration
that could make the chimney unsafe to use. At The Fireplace Place, we don’t just do
a chimney sweep. We perform a Level 1 Chimney Inspection and Cleaning. This includes examining
the readily accessible portions of the chimney exterior, interior, and accessible portions
of the appliance and the chimney connection. Our technician will be looking for the basic
soundness of the chimney structure and flue as well as the basic appliance installation
and connections. The technician will also verify the chimney is free of obstruction
and combustible deposits. More thorough inspections are available if our technician suspects that
there are underlying issues that cannot be assessed from a visual inspection. This can
include scanning the chimney with a camera, removing components of the structure–like
the rain pan, interior chimney wall, sheetrock or siding–to gain access to detect further
problems. If you’re thinking of hiring a chimney sweep, visit our website at

The Fireplace Place, “Your Comfort is Our Business!”
