Your Chimney Sweeps and Cleaning questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does a chimney sweep cost?

A chimney sweep costs $150 to $375 on average for a cleaning service with a level 1 inspection. Cleaning service for a gas fireplace is the cheapest at $80 to $150. Prices vary according to the type of fuel source and which kind of chimney, fireplace, or stove you have.

A frequently cleaned chimney costs $100 to $250 for the standard inspection and vacuuming service. Wood-burning fireplaces in a poorly maintained masonry chimney will cost extra for more labor and a deeper inspection with a video camera if there are damages.

How often should a chimney be cleaned?

The National Fire Protection Association recommends cleaning a chimney at least once per year, or more if you burn over 36 fires in a year. Cleaning a chimney regularly prevents creosote buildup or fallen debris from catching on fire.

Do gas fireplace chimneys need cleaning?

Yes, gas fireplaces need to be cleaned to prevent damage or carbon monoxide poisoning. A gas fireplace cleaning costs about $75 and includes cleaning the glass and removing any debris from the vent.

Do chimney sweep logs work?

Chimney cleaning logs cannot replace professional cleaning and sometimes cause fires instead of preventing them. Chimney sweep logs can cause loosened creosote to catch fire as it falls, which can cause sparks to fly and potentially cause a fire in the home. Creosote logs may help loosen Stage 1 creosote buildup but cannot help Stage 2 or 3 buildup.

How can I tell if my chimney needs cleaning?

Your chimney may need to be cleaned if:

  • It's been over a year since it was last inspected.
  • It smells like a campfire even when nothing is burning.
  • Fires take longer to get going and don't burn as well as before.
  • Smoke drifts into the room even when the flue is open.
  • There are signs of a bird or animal inside.

Do you tip a chimney sweep?

You typically don't tip a chimney sweep because, like other contractors, they are paid an hourly wage and don't expect a tip. However, you can tip if you feel they went above and beyond or worked in especially difficult conditions.

How do I choose a chimney cleaning service?

Start by searching our list of professional chimney cleaners, then:

  • Get at least three free estimates to compare.
  • Read reviews and browse their work on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Choose a company that is licensed, bonded, and experienced.
  • Verify their insurance, guarantees, and warranty.
  • Get a detailed estimate, contract, and warranty in writing before work begins.
  • Avoid making large payments up front. Follow a payment schedule instead.

After asking questions and verifying their credentials, hire the best chimney cleaning company near you.

What questions should I ask chimney cleaners?

Ask these questions to find the best chimney sweep near you:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Are you licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • Do you have any certifications from the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) or the National Fireplace Institute (NFI)?
  • How can I tell the difference between soot and creosote?
  • How long will the cleaning take?
  • Will you have to go on my roof?
  • Can you give me a written estimate, contract, and warranty?

We had pet stains that we were on the verge of replacing the carpet. We Googled two companies the first company gave us a high quote but we wanted a second opinion. So we contacted the second company which was “OMA Professional Cleaning Technicians” They were very knowledgeable wanting to understand certain concerns around the cleaning which I feel was very important. The price they quoted was almost half the other company had quoted and they were willing to give a guarantee with the work. The techs showed up on time, moved furniture, got all the stains out, not mention they were extremely professional and fast. I just had to write a review and tell everyone I know about this service. Thank you “OMA-PCT”
