Chimney Sweep

A chimney sweep company cleans chimneys with two outcomes in mind. The first outcome is to remove flammable creosote from the flue. Creosote forms every time wood burns, and the more of it that clings to the inner walls of the chimney, the more chance there is for a disastrous chimney fire.

The second outcome is to remove leaves, twigs, dust accumulations, bird nests and small animals who have died inside the chimney. Our certified chimney sweeps will keep your chimney clean, safe and performing at its best.


Chimney inspection in Keene NH

Chimney Inspections – Keene & So.-Central NH

Black Moose technicians are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America and regularly perform three levels of chimney inspection:

Level 1: We cover all chimney/fireplace components including the chimney cap, crown, chase top, chimney liner, smoke chamber, damper and the masonry of the chimney structure.

Level 2: A more detailed inspection is necessary when there has been a chimney fire, when connecting a new heating appliance to the chimney and when the home is being sold.

Level 3: This is the most involved inspection, always performed when severe damage to the chimney exists or is suspected.


Chimney waterproofing in Keene NH

Leaky Chimneys

When water has infiltrated damaged chimney bricks and mortar or is getting in because of a faulty component, serious problems are sure to result if the issue isn’t addressed. Water from rain and melting snow can erode the sturdiest mortar, eating away at the structure over time until an unsafe operational state exists. Our CSIA-certified chimney technicians will find the source of the leak and initiate repair work to solve the problem.

Signs of a chimney leak include water in the firebox, a rusty damper, unpleasant odors coming from the fireplace, discolored chimney bricks and damp or stained areas on walls adjacent to the chimney.

Chimney Masonry Work

A safe chimney is one whose masonry is strong and sturdy. When damage from water, extreme weather events, house-settling, lightning strikes and plain old age have compromised chimney masonry, repair work needs to happen quickly. Tuckpointing is a process where we replace areas of missing masonry with a strong compound that will restore safety to the structure. If there are cracks in bricks or mortar, we often can solve the problem with a spray-on waterproof sealant. We perform these and all other types of chimney masonry work.

Chimney Rebuilding Projects

Sometimes we find chimneys that are damaged to the point basic repair will not fix the problem. In these cases, our expert stone masons can rebuild sections of the chimney or build a completely new chimney from the bottom up. It all depends on the extent of damage found during a chimney inspection. If you notice the chimney at your Keene, NH, home is leaning to one side or if large sections of brick are falling away from the structure, call us immediately before you use the chimney again.

I wanted to give 5 stars but they are very busy which meant I had a good wait for both the inspection/cleaning, then for a quote on repairs and then for the repairs. Their prices seemed a little high to me but I have nothing to compare with as they were highly recommended by someone I trust and other companies had plenty of negatives reviews which kept me from getting additional quotes. I am happy with the work and they promptly returned to fix a mistake that had been made. Chris the inspector, Jennifer in the office, and Alex and his repair crew were all pleasant and took the time to answer all of my questions. Alex and his crew even took their shoes off (it was winter) before entering my house without even being asked! So if you are not in a rush and want to ensure you chimney is as safe as possible then I think you'll be happy with Black Moose.

After a recent sweep of our chimney, it was discovered that our flue tiles were cracked. Black Moose techs were hard working, detail oriented and professional! Nice jobs guys! See you next year for my cleaning!

Excellent I highly recommend Black Moose Chimney and Stove; Kelly and Liam are awesome, they did a great job. Extremely professional, arrived early, went through everything with a fine tooth comb ensuring pellet stove was thoroughly cleaned. They also were respectful of my home, conscientious and cleaned up after themselves. Made sure stove worked prior to leaving and told me to call promptly if anything came up afterward. Will definitely use them again.

We've had Black Moose clean our chimney for a number of years.But recently, we had an emergency situation at our home involving our chimney & oil furnace flue, which was caked full of soot from a malfunctioning furnace. They came & cleaned out both flues in no time, even going up on the roof with snow on it! They cleaned up after their work in the interior rooms where the oil furnace and the woodstove are located. Great work. Reasonable prices. Very nice people. You can't go wrong with Black Moose.

Goods: The technicians know their business, very efficient in cleaning/inspection along with cleaning up after the 'dirty work'.Others: Communications could be more effective. Despite early coordination about scope of work (multiple flues within same chimney) the estimate provided did not reflect this and the final invoice was significantly more than the estimate provided.Quote for follow-on chimney relining was significantly more than that offered by other companies in the area (and far more than neighbors experienced for similar work accomplished by other companies)
