Let Us Take Care of Your Chimney
When we’re cleaning your chimney, we are doing more than just brushing away soot and unwanted debris. As National Fire Protection Association members, a visit from us is a full-service and comprehensive chimney inspection. As we’re cleaning your chimney, flue, and fireplace from top to bottom, we’ll also be inspecting every inch of it to make sure it is up to code.
We’re always looking out for minor problems with the following sections:
- Chimney Crown
- Smoke Chamber
- Smoke Shelf
- Chimney Case Cover
- Ash Dump
When it comes to chimneys, cleanliness isn’t really about the appearance of the chimney. Chimneys are cleaned to improve their efficiency and to ensure it is always safe to use.
Certified Fire Protection Technicians
We’re more than just a company with dust masks and flue-liner brushes. We’re certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America. We follow every rule and regulation to the letter and make sure every single task is completed to our exceptionally high standards.
We Keep an Eye out for Creosote
A lot of homeowners aren’t familiar with creosote. Should it be a word you hear your chimney sweeper mention, though? Absolutely! Creosote is that dark brown oil distilled from coal tar that can cover the walls of your flue and smoke chamber.
You might be thinking, ‘I don’t use coal to heat my home!’. But that’s irrelevant. It is often used as a wood preservative, which explains why it winds up coating your flue and chimney.
When we clean your chimney, we’re always looking to make sure we’re removing every last inch of creosote. Too much buildup can impact chimney efficiency, and it never takes long for a little creosote buildup to become too much creosote. When there is too much, it only becomes more difficult to deal with. To better preserve the health of your chimney, we are prepared to scrape away whatever creosote has taken hold of your flue.
Discounts for Seniors and Military Veterans
Whether it is through our free in-house consultations, extended warranties on all services and repairs, or simply the quality of our work, our clients save money with us at every turn. As homeowners ourselves, we know how it can be difficult to budget for chimney work when there are already so many things to worry about. That’s why we keep our rates low. We want you to call us every single time you need assistance!
What’s more, we offer attractive discounts for all seniors and the brave Veterans throughout Raleigh. Consider our 10% discount as a small token of our appreciation.

Dangers of a Dirty Chimney
Lots of people in the Raleigh area will overlook certain repairs or home maintenance tasks. They’ll let their roofing shingles go un-repaired, or they’ll let their chimney stay dirty with debris and creosote. But letting your home fall into disrepair doesn’t just inconvenience you, it can also affect the health of everyone in your home.
An unclean chimney can also become vulnerable to chimney fires, which aren’t covered by many insurance policies. That means if your chimney experiences a fire you might be left with a massive repair bill that could have been avoided with proper maintenance.
Many problems can arise from creosote buildup. Creosote is a dangerous byproduct of wood that is not completely burned in a home’s fireplace or wood stove. As the creosote sticks to the chimney and flue, it only leads to further inefficiency. Proper cleaning will not only remove creosote buildup, but it will improve air-flow so fires can burn more efficiently, thereby producing less creosote.

Signs Your Chimney May Need Cleaning
Let’s face it, nobody likes the idea of having to clean their dark and sooty chimney. Examining something dark for signs that it is dark is also a very tricky undertaking. In truth, you can perform a chimney inspection on your own but if you want to ensure the optimal results for your Raleigh home, then you need to contact a professional chimney cleaning team you can rely on—a team like Mr. Soot Chimney.
One of the biggest advantages of enlisting our help is that we can detect the telltale signs of soot damage very early to ensure that your Raleigh home is as safe as possible from the risks of fire hazards.
Using an industry-level flashlight as well as the most advanced and cutting-edge cleaning equipment, our skilled team of chimney cleaners can determine how much creosote is built up. Our team will always keep an eye out for obstacles like leaves, nests or other debris. Many small animals and birds seek refuge in a chimney to avoid predators. A properly cleaned chimney will have walls that are smooth and silky, without ridges or bubbles. Creosote presents itself in many different forms including scales, a sandy appearance and even tar.
