Keep Your Chimney & Fireplace In Peak Condition With Top Notch Chimney Sweep & Services

One of the best amenities you can have in your home or business is a fireplace – not just for additional heating, but also for ambiance. Of course, a fireplace that is neglected or in disrepair won’t give you the same enjoyment, but can instead be a threat and an eyesore. But we’re here to help with that. If you have a fireplace and chimney in your home or office, the team at Top Notch Chimney Sweep & Services can help you keep it looking and functioning the way that it should.

We provide comprehensive chimney and fireplace care, from sweepings and inspections to masonry repairs and relining services. Basically, we provide any service that will benefit your chimney system and allow you to enjoy its warmth and ambiance for years to come. Here are the most common chimney services that we provide to our clients throughout central Iowa:

  • Chimney Sweeping – Having a professional sweep regularly sweep your chimney is one of the most important steps you can take towards ensuring the safety of your home and family. Not only does a thorough sweeping remove dangerous deposits, blockages, and flammable debris, but it also protects your system’s parts from damage and keeps them functioning optimally. If you haven’t had your chimney swept lately, you can bet it’s time! Click here to learn more about our sweeping services and how we can help you!
  • Chimney Inspections – Our sweeps are also professionally trained to perform chimney inspections, which should be conducted at least once a year, regardless of use. There are three different levels of inspections (as defined by the National Fire Protection Association), and our sweeps know when each level is necessary. Whether your system is showing signs of trouble or not, regular inspections give the best view into the condition and functionality of the system as a whole. Click here to get a breakdown of the three levels and to learn more about when and why they are necessary.
  • Gas Log Service – Gas logs are popular because of their convenience and ease of use, but they still require regular maintenance and service. Our technicians know how to properly maintain gas log sets so that you get maximum enjoyment with minimal risk. Click here to read more about the importance of regular gas log service.
  • Chimney Caps & Dampers – Chimney caps and dampers often get taken for granted, but they both serve an important role in the safety and functionality of the chimney system. Chimney caps largely work to keep unwanted water, critters, and debris out of your system, while dampers work to allow proper ventilation and prevent heat loss.

Professional & Friendly
After buying a new house, my wife and I didn't know much about our fireplace and chimney. Tom came up to Ames to inspect and clean our chimney. He was prompt, professional, and friendly--our dog, who is a good judge of character, really liked him too! He gave us a lot of great information, talking us through how to best use our fireplace, and he left us feeling confident that we'll be able to enjoy our nice fires during the cold seasons for years to come! He also helped me understand what issues we might have with the unused, boarded-up fireplace in the basement and promised to come take a look at it this winter in the event that we want to get it in workable condition too.I'm really pleased with the service we received, and now I know who I'm going to call for yearly service or for any problems! Thanks, Tom, for all your help!  I'll be passing on your name to friends!
