Chimney Sweep/Chimney Cleaning
Annual chimney sweep services will go a long way toward ensuring that the chimney in your Park Avenue neighborhood home is safe and efficient. Our expert chimney sweeps use specialized electronic brushes, scrubbers, vacuums and solvents to remove flammable creosote and other obstructions.
Creosote, a byproduct of combustion, is responsible for most chimney fires in the U.S. each year. Chimney flues blocked by a buildup of leaves, twigs, small-animal nests and the like often send deadly carbon monoxide into the home, where it can cause people and pets to become sick or worse.
Keep your home and family safe with annual chimney cleaning and inspection services from professional, trained chimney sweeps.

When was the last time your chimney was inspected? If it’s been more than a year, it would be a smart idea to schedule a thorough inspection soon so we can spot early signs of damage and make the necessary repairs.
Felgemacher’s expert chimney inspectors perform all three recognized levels of chimney inspections throughout Rochester’s Park Avenue neighborhood and other local communities:
Level 1: The basic inspection recommended each year
It would be a good idea to schedule a yearly Level 1 chimney inspection to spot early signs of damage and get them repaired safely and correctly.
Level 2: Includes video inspection of the interior flue and is called for when:
- Your home is being sold
- A new appliance is being hooked up to your chimney or there has been a modification in the system
- A chimney fire or other damage is known to have happened
Level 3: Performed when a previous inspection has turned up significant damage or significant damage is obvious
Chimney Caps, Flue Caps & Chase Tops
Three of the most important components in a fireplace/chimney system are chimney caps and flue caps on masonry chimneys and the chimney chase top typically found on factory-made chimneys.
Chimney caps: A full hip and ridge custom chimney cap protects the entire top of your chimney including the flue openings and the critical chimney crown and masonry. When it’s time to install the very best, our team will add one of these good-looking, top-performing caps to your chimney.
Flue caps: These components cover only the flue openings and block rain and snow. When a flue cap is severely damaged and in need of replacement, we always recommend replacing it with a full-width chimney cap.
Chimney chase tops: Chase tops (also called chase covers) provide protection against water damage in pre-fab chimneys. When these components are cracked or corroded, water can infiltrate the system and lead to widespread deterioration.
