  • Chimney Sweeping – Are soot and creosote eating away at your chimney system and causing efficiency, smoke, and safety issues? A chimney sweeping can help! The team at Northwest Fireplace and Chimney provides thorough chimney sweep services, removing all brushable deposits so you can get the most out of your chimney system and keep it in great condition.

We perform annual chimney inspections, which allow us to get a good overall look at your chimney and its condition, and hopefully diagnose problems while they’re still small.
  • Chimney Relining – Did you know that a damaged or missing chimney liner can cause issues ranging from draft problems and trouble keeping your fire lit to smoke issues, carbon monoxide exposure, and even house fire? If your chimney needs to be relined, don’t wait! We reline with quality stainless steel liners that are built to provide years of effective service.
  • Chimney Leak Resolution – Discovering a chimney leak is one of the worst feelings a homeowner can experience – and what’s even more frustrating is not knowing where the problem is or how to fix it. If a chimney leak has you feeling frustrated, call on Soot Patrol. We specialize in identifying leaks, putting a stop to them, and preventing them in the future.
