Certified chimney sweep & chimney cleaning in Swanzey NH

Chimney Sweep

Most chimney fires in the U.S. each year are started by creosote that has built up inside the flue. Creosote is made when wood burns, and the substance is highly flammable. Our CSIA-certified chimney sweeps have the equipment and training to thoroughly rid your chimney of creosote as well as buildups of leaves, twigs, small-animal nests and other debris that often gets into chimneys and causes drafting obstructions. Count on us to do the job right the first time.

Chimney Inspections, Swanzey, NH

A professional chimney inspection is the only way you can know the exact state of your chimney and fireplace at any given time. Many early signs of damage can be spotted by a trained inspector and repaired before an extensive and expensive problem arises. Our basic residential chimney inspections cover all components and the chimney structure itself. We want you and your family to be safe, and once-a-year chimney inspections can help make that happen.

Leaky Chimneys Repaired

A leaky chimney usually presents a few clues you can easily spot:

  • Damp sections of walls near the chimney
  • Strong smells coming from the firebox
  • Water dripping in the firebox
  • White staining on chimney masonry

If you’re experiencing these and other signs of a chimney leak, it’s important to have the system inspected as soon as possible. Left alone, water that infiltrates a chimney can cause major damage not only to the chimney’s bricks and mortar but also to vulnerable building materials of the home. Our certified chimney technicians will find and fix your leak fast.

Chimney Masonry Repair & Restoration

Over time, even the strongest chimney masonry can fall into disrepair. When bricks are loose and when cracks appear and keep getting larger, your chimney is in an unsafe operational state. We perform chimney masonry repair projects such as tuckpointing, in which we add a strong new compound to areas of missing bricks to restore structural integrity. For cracking, we often can prevent further damage from water by adding a waterproof sealant. Our techs undertake these and all other types of chimney masonry repair including historic restorations.

Chimney Rebuilding

There may come a time when basic repair work isn’t enough to save a chimney. When the structure is significantly damaged or leaning to one side, chimney rebuilding may be necessary. Our technicians are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America and are more than well-equipped to perform partial or complete chimney rebuilding to restore integrity to the chimney and to create a safe environment for everyone who lives in the home.

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)
