Certified Chimney Sweeping Services for Sacramento
A dirty or neglected chimney can cause serious harm to both your home and your family and can result in structure fires, property loss, carbon monoxide poisoning, and even death. Unfortunately, the chimney is often forgotten until it’s needed. But maintaining your chimney system doesn’t have to be a hassle or a mess – with A to Z Chimney Services, it’s neither!
Why Do I Need To Schedule Regular Chimney Sweepings?
Every time you light a fire, it generates a combustion product known as creosote. Over time, this highly flammable, tar-like substance begins to accumulate in your chimney’s flue. Not only does this create a fire hazard, but this acidic substance can begin to erode your flue, leading to weakened masonry, cracked tiles, water damage, and other potentially serious and expensive problems that can compromise the safety and efficiency of your chimney and even lead to health problems.
In addition to creosote buildup, your chimney can also experience decay or increased risk of fire or smoke problems due to animal intrusion, flue blockages, leaks, and more. Hiring a professional chimney sweep on a regular basis can help keep these problems at bay or alert you to them early on.
Why Should I Hire A Certified Professional To Sweep My Chimney?
Unfortunately, the chimney industry is unregulated, which means that virtually anyone can start a chimney sweep business with a few basic tools and a ladder – but that doesn’t make them qualified. In fact, an inexperienced sweep can often lead to greater damage and higher risk of structure fire or other chimney-related issue. That’s why it’s important to do your research on a company and make sure you’re only letting knowledgeable and experienced technicians into your home.

We also lay tarps everywhere we walk, so you can relax knowing our technicians won’t track soot from the work area onto your carpet; this is all part of our “No Mess Guarantee”.
Our Thorough ChimScan Inspections With Every Sweeping
We always follow our chimney sweeping service with a thorough inspection of the chimney to evaluate the soundness of the system and get a good look at the inside. Simply using a flashlight is not an adequate means of inspecting the flue. Because of offsets, mortar protrusions, and sheer distance, shadows are cast within the flue, rendering it virtually impossible to adequately see the chimney’s inner surfaces. That’s why we’ve invested in a ChimScan camera, which allows us to view – via a small TV screen set up on the hearth – the inside of the chimney from a perspective that’s only inches from the inner surface.
The ChimScan video inspection also allows us to show you what condition your chimney flue is in, so you don’t have to just take our word for it when we detect a problem or want to show you how nice and clean your chimney is after we finish sweeping it. Pictures from the ChimScan may also allow you to get a second opinion before making repairs (if desired), or even help when filing a claim with your insurance company.
Our ChimScan inspection is included with every open-faced fireplace flue sweeping at no additional charge. We feel that the extra effort is worth the peace of mind it gives you and your family when enjoying your fireplace or stove.

Dear A to Z,
I just wanted to thank you for your honesty and for a thorough inspection of my chimney. One of the biggest concerns I have when hiring service professionals is being taken advantage when not having first hand knowledge of the various procedures. Last year when I had my chimney swept by one of your competitors, they claimed that I had a chimney fire, and that my flue was now cracked and needed extensive repairs.
This year, I hired A to Z to come out and sweep and inspect the flue because I heard they inspect the chimneys with a Chim Scan camera at no additional charge. The technician who came to my home, assured me I would be able to see any cracks or hazardous conditions along with him as he video scanned my flue. To my utter delight, NO EVIDENCE OF A CHIMNEY FIRE OR DAMAGE IN MY FLUE WAS DETECTED!!! Chris was extremely detailed in his inspection and really took his time educating me so I could feel comfortable. It was obvious that he knew what he was talking about and truly interested in doing the right thing…a far cry from last year’s experience with the other company. If anyone asks for an HONEST, COMPETENT, AND PROFESSIONAL chimney sweep company, I'll be sure to recommend A to Z!
