Costa Mesa CA Chimney Service
Throughout the Costa Mesa area, homeowners call Oliver Twist Chimney & Fireplace first for chimney services performed by licensed, experienced technicians. We’ve been serving the greater Orange County region since 1987. Here’s how we can help you.
Chimney Sweep Service
Active chimneys need to be cleaned about once a year. There are two primary reasons:
To remove creosote: Creosote is a highly flammable substance that forms when smoke condenses in the chimney flue. The majority of chimney fires in Costa Mesa each year are caused by ignited creosote.
To remove obstructions: Animal nests, leaves, twigs and other types of debris will narrow the chimney flue. When this happens, smoke and deadly carbon monoxide can back up into your home.
Our chimney sweep crew uses specialized tools to remove creosote and drafting obstructions. Oliver Twist is a proud member of the Golden State Chimney Sweep Guild.
Chimney Inspections in Costa Mesa
Along with chimney sweeping, regular chimney inspections are a critical part of chimney and fireplace maintenance.
Our professional chimney inspectors perform all three recognized levels of inspection:
Level 1: A basic inspection that should be performed annually.
Level 2: A more involved inspection that includes video imaging when:
- A new appliance is being connected to the chimney, or the system is being otherwise altered
- A fire or other event is believed to have caused damage
- The home is on the market for sale (often called a “real estate chimney inspection”)
Level 3: A major inspection when serious damage is known to exist. Level 3 inspections often require the removal of parts of the chimney or adjacent materials of the home.
