6 Reasons To Clean Your Chimney

1. Improve Performance

As a chimney flue gets coated with creosote  and soot. The draft and flow is reduced, meaning smoke is likely to backdraft into the home. Nothing is more frustrating than having a smoky Fireplace.

2. Sweeping Helps Prevent Flue Fires

Regular maintenance of a your fireplace and chimney flue helps to keep your family safe by preventing flue fires from happening inside the chimney.

3. Reduce the Risk of Carbon Monoxide

All chimneys run the risk of pushing carbon monoxide back into a home. Chimney’s that are not cleaned regularly are at a much higher risk for potentially fatal exhaust issues.

Annual Inspection and Cleaning are a must for homeowners with fireplaces or gas appliances.

4. Eliminate Foul Chimney Odor

If you’ve ever wondered why your living room smells like a campfire, then you can understand the need to stop chimney odors.

Keep a clean chimney and a fresh house!

5. Remove Sooty Creosote & Debris

Creosote is flammable fuel to chimney fires. Since creosote cannot be avoided, we must minimize it by removing it from the flue before it builds up to become a fire hazard.

6. Stop Animal Entry

A chimney cleaning can often detect the presence of pest animals and all types of critters that make homes in flues. An inspection will find the details and provide options for animal entry solutions, like caps.

7. Extend Your Chimneys Lifetime

Well maintained chimneys can increase the value of your home and last the span of many decades. Annual cleanings reduce the risk of costly chimney repairs in the future.

8. Peace of Mind

Furnace flues and fireplace systems have the responsibility of separating you from the fire. Keeping up on maintenance ensures your chimneys’ condition when you wish to enjoy a fire.

Parts of a Chimney

Chimney Parts Diagram

Whether your heating system is gas or wood-burning, every fireplace has a chimney. It’s purpose is to vent smoke and exhaust fumes safely outside the home. Making the chimneys job one of, if not the most important in home maintenance, but is often overlooked. 

See chimney parts shown in the diagram above:

  • Firebox & Grate
  • Lintel Area
  • Fireplace Damper
  • Smoke Shelf & Chamber
  • Fireplace Flue Tiles

These are the basic parts of a chimney.  It takes a whole system functioning properly to keep your home safe and warm. If even one part is failing, then the home is at risk for a flue fire in the chimney or exposure to carbon monoxide. For this reason, chimney cleanings are recommended at least once per year. 

Why Clean Your Chimney?

Having your chimney cleaned by a Certified Chimney Sweep removes creosote.

Creosote is a byproduct of wood burning and is responsible for hundreds of thousands of dollars in home and chimney damage across the Kansas City metro. Soot and creosote put homes at risk for chimney fires and are can cause a blockage in your flue liner that will push carbon monoxide back inside the home.

Annual Cleaning Needed

It’s recommended to schedule a chimney cleaning service prior to your annual chimney inspection.

Insurance companies along with the (CSIA) Chimney Safety Institute of America, the NFPA211, and many chimney and fireplace manufacturers insist a chimney cleaning service and inspection is completed yearly.

What Our Customers Say

I was highly impressed with the printed inspection report I was provided that included pictures of our fireplace and chimney with the corresponding recommendations. Our unit was unsafe and the home inspection company missed everything Full Service Chimney found. We are so thankful we took the recommendation to use Full Service Chimney. That promptly ordered the parts needed to repair our fireplace and chimney. Our unit was fixed the day after they received the parts. They did run into an issue and thoroughly explained what needed to be done and why. I was shown their completed work via iPad, no need for me to climb the roof for verification. I would recommend this company to anyone needing a fireplace or chimney inspection or repair.


I appreciate the honesty of this company and their employees specially Mr. Zach Myers. He verify my chimney and try to find a solution to the water in front of the chimney. He explain everything very clear. You can trust the service and commitment of this company, I recommend it.


I highly recommend Full Service Chimney for anyone needing a Kansas City Chimney Sweep. Following a routine chimney inspection the experts at Full Service Chimney quickly identified a major defect in the utility flue system in my chimney. Due to the severity of the situation they adjusted their schedule to get the repair team onsite as soon as possible. My top two concerns when dealing with any contractor are communication and quality of service. The team at Full Service Chimney provided clear communication and impeccable service throughout the entire process. Can't speak highly enough of this organization. You won't be disappointed.


Everyone was very professional and courteous even when there was a problem with the gas line connection in the fireplace. They stayed until the problem was fixed which delayed their next project. I am very pleased with the results and the professionalism of everyone who worked on the project.  This was the second project at my home and was very pleased both times.  I highly recommend them for any chimney problem or project.

Beverly Wicker

Great experience with Sam. Was quoted $200 for the inspection and $100 for cleaning when I scheduled the visit. Unfortunately upon inspection, my chimney is no longer safe to use and also made of parts that are apparently a million years old. They obviously didn't charge me for a clean but Sam even comped part of the inspection fee.
