Our number one objective in sweeping chimneys is to prevent chimney fires. Our chimney service is not matched. We want to keep you safe.

Why Chimney Care is Important

The number one reason for chimney care is to prevent malfunctions in the system and to prevent chimney fires and you continually ensure that the chimney is suitable to be used at all times. (All the NFPA minimum requirement is an annual inspection.)

The Chimney Sweep Process

This is a 10 step process (we attach separate attachment for this) tips brochure


Why does the chimney smoke?

The chimney smoke because usually it hasn’t been cleaned or serviced in a long time and there is a lot of turbulence in there because of soot or creosote or the grate is pulled too far forward in the fireplace (that happens a lot) or the damper is not opened all the way (or not at all) or there is some kind of obstruction in the chimney itself.

How do we light the fire easily?

See “how to safely enjoy your home fire”

What kind of wood burns the best?

The best words to burn are hardwoods. Any hardwood will burn the longest and generate the maximum amount of heat and it will also tend to not soot up the chimney as easily as softer words that have a high degree of sap or moisture.

How do I keep birds from coming into the top of the chimney?

By putting a listed spark arrester on top of the chimney. A spark arrestor has a lid that is attached to the top of the termination. It prevents rain from coming down the chimney, prevents sparks from coming out of your chimney onto your roof or the roof your neighbors, and it prevents birds as well as other rodents from coming into the system gaining access to the house.

Yearly Maintenance Plans

Yearly maintenance plans are just a scheduling process for having the chimney inspected on an annual basis per the NFPA minimum standards. Your homeowners association insurance will require an inspection for any appliance that vents heat. This doesn’t have to be the chimney necessarily. It could be dryer vents, hot water heater, etc. Anything that is venting heat needs to have an annual inspection to check for suitability and make sure nothing is malfunctioning. This doesn’t mean that the system needs to be cleaned; it just needs to be inspected to make sure things are operating the way they are designed to.


We provide/perform:
SoCal Chimney Corporation provides a myriad of services. Our number one main chimney service is sweeping and inspecting chimneys. From that inspection we may find that the chimney needs other services. For example, the gas line may need to be replaced, the great may need to be replaced, any hardware in the fireplace including artificial logs sets.
