Fireplace Doctor’s Expert Chimney Sweep Services

At The Fireplace Doctor Birmingham Alabama, we know the importance of chimney and fireplace maintenance. Fireplaces and chimneys are dangerous when not properly maintained. Thus, our professional chimney sweeps give you top quality safety inspections and service to lower that risk.

Prevent Chimney Fires

  • Hiring our certified local chimney sweep Birmingham team has several benefits, most importantly, safety. You can trust your local experts to clean out dangerous, flammable buildup that could likely destroy your house in a chimney fire. Additionally, each technician performs a 21-point safety inspection to ensure your complete chimney and fireplace system are free of risk.
  • Even if you think your chimney is safe from water, all masonry chimneys are porous, absorbing water each day. Water leaks can greatly damage the structural integrity of your home. It can also cause draft problems because the hot air cools in the chimney and sinks back into the home. Our chimney water damage repair experts will ensure that your chimney is in great condition by providing chimney waterproofing with the highest quality sealants on the market.
  • The CSIA recommends you have an Annual Chimney Inspection. These inspections will identify sooty buildup as well as ventilation issues. At Fireplace Doctor Birmingham, we can fix dangers to your home the same day we find them so your home can be safe.
  • Cleaning your chimney yourself is both tedious and dangerous. Let your local chimney sweeps in Birmingham use high-grade equipment to remove hazards properly, quickly, and safely. With the use of ChimScans, advanced videoing technology, our Birmingham chimney sweeps can see the parts of your chimney that others can’t. Thus, these ChimScans allow them to better clean it out.
