Structure fires related to fireplace use are entirely preventable.

That’s why we at Mike’s Clean Sweeps have made an ethical commitment to technical betterment-because the safety of our clients is at stake.

Our Most Popular Services

Level 1 & 2 Inspections

We run a camera on every chimney we touch. We no longer provide cleanings without an inspection due to the frequency with which we discover hidden defects when we run our cameras. A camera-based inspection is the only meaningful way to assess for potential hazards and prevent structure fires caused by fireplace use.

Caps & Dampers

Rainwater mixes with creosote and creates various acids that not only rust out metal components but also speed the deterioration of mortar and lining tiles. Don’t let your damper rust until frozen shut because you lack a termination cap! That’s just one example of how preventative measures can save you money in the long run.

Chimney Crown Repair

Chimneys are highly exposed to the elements. The crown at the top of your chimney is designed to prevent rainwater from damaging your lining tiles and the brickwork that surrounds them. Years of water intrusion and neglect can lead to extensive chimney repairs. Stop the damage now by sealing cracks with CrownSeal.

About Us

We Take Fire Seriously
So Should You

We at Mike’s Clean Sweeps are happy to tell you all about the varieties of fireplaces and chimneys, how to protect them with preventative maintenance, and how to reline a masonry chimney that has deteriorated internally. We perform drafting calculations as part of our Level 2 Inspections, provide digital reports referencing code, and utilize only the most cutting-edge equipment and materials. We can let you know how state, national, and local code requirements will impact your project and have recourse to the Technical Advisory Council for the National Chimney Sweep Guild for instances that demand further research.
