What’s The Most Important Chimney Maintenance Service? An Annual Inspection and Sweeping

We provide our neighbors in Knoxville and the surrounding areas with thorough, reliable level 1, 2, and 3 chimney inspections. There’s so much that goes into keeping your chimney and fireplace, insert, or stove working safely and efficiently. And there’s so much that can go wrong that’s out of sight. That’s the reason chimney inspections are so important.

Your chimney should be swept whenever there is a measurable amount of creosote or soot buildup. For most homeowners who use their wood-burning fireplaces often during the fall and winter seasons, the chimney will need to be cleaned once a year.

Worried about mess? Don’t be!! We follow a very specific process to ensure our clients’ chimneys get thoroughly cleaned, without a mess, and that any issues or concerns are identified for the homeowner.

Tim was professional, experienced, and honest. I felt completely at ease with the quality of the inspection and the repairs identified to make my fireplace safe and efficient. I have found an expert chimney sweep! Thank you for a job well done at a reasonable price and on schedule.


They installed our MASSIVE wood stove into our fireplace with great care. Hard to imagine how they did it so quickly considering how tight of a fit it was. All with big smiles and kindness. Timmy is your guy…I’ll recommend him to everyone!


Timmy is excellent. He swept and inspected our chimney, applied heat shield to repair some large gaps, and mounted a chimney cap. He is extremely nice, professional, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him!
