While many people think of chimney sweeps as characters from Dickens novels or Mary Poppins matinees, the technicians at Chicago Chimney Inc. know that their job is as real and important as it’s ever been. The insured workers remove the soot and buildup that collects within fireplaces, flues, and chimneys, clearing a path for smoke to safely exit the house without having to stop and ask for directions. Their services extend beyond simple cleanings—the techs use their more than 20 years of industry experience to install energy-efficient dampers, repair and reline busted chimneys, and perform brick masonry and tuck-pointing work. They’ll even rebuild an entire chimney, whether it’s crumbling away in disrepair or slowly inching its way to the house next door.
