Chimney cleaning prices
The chimney cleaning process is different for many situations. Most professional chimney sweeps are moving away from pre-priced chimney sweeping because it leads to frustrated customers. Here is an example:
Customer 1: They have their chimney inspected every year, they burn hard wood and the type of fireplace they own is a prefabricated chimney with a simple 8 inch round stainless steel liner. Their home is a one story, the roof is not very steep and the roof shingles are asphalt. This is the most easiest chimney to clean.
Customer 2: He lives in a 3 story home, the roof is extremely steep with slate shingles. He also has a wood burning stove that weighs 500 pounds that needs to be removed from the fireplace to even perform the cleaning. This home owner burns pine wood and uses his chimney everyday to heat his house. And by the way, this home owner has not cleaned his chimney in 10 years.
The solution: We have decided that the best way to help our customers is to perform the best chimney inspection in the industry and charge the lowest rates for those inspections. For many years, our typical chimney inspection was $85 – $115. We have now discounted our chimney inspection price to completely educate our clients regarding the condition of their chimney. But to be fair to our company and our technicians, we price our chimney sweeping to the condition of their chimney and we do the best chimney cleaning in the industry. Our standard rate for chimney sweeping is as follows:
Prefabricated chimney sweep: $199
Standard Masonry Fireplace: $199
