Couldn’t be more happy with English Sweep my water heater wasn’t venting properly and was leaking gas into my basemen. I needed a new a chimney liner and Kyle came out on a Tuesday and their team installed it on Thursday. (Customer Service was fantastic) During the installation they accidentally broke an old pipe in my city home and before they left they had a plumber fix it and everything was all good when they left. Would absolutely recommend, and will use in the future!

A MUST for whatever chimney problems - ENGLISH SWEEP. I can strongly recommend English Sweep to do whatever repair on problems you may have with your chimney - fireplace, and to get the problem corrected safely and efficiently. Several years ago I used them to do chimney reconstruction on about 10-12 lines of bricks, from the top, and crown replacement on my chimney. Recently I smelled something when I turned on my flue-less gas fireplace and called ENGLISH SWEEP. I was informed that even with my type of fireplace, one should periodically check the fireplace for any type of buildup. To be honest, I had not checked for years. Russ, the technician, showed up on time, cleaned my fireplace and I now have no smells whatsoever and the fireplace works without any further problems. Russ, and all ENGLISH SWEEP technicians are professional, safety minded, carefull of property, and do their work in an efficient and skilled quality performance. They are concerned about cleaniness in their work area. I strongly recomment ENGLISH SWEEP for any and all chimney, fireplace, and related conerns you have. Al Finkelstein

It might sound strange giving a company 5 stars for not completing work but I have to give Jeff & English Sweep the highest rating possible. We scheduled a sweep and inspection on our 2 chimneys. Everything was scheduled and communicated very professionally. Jeff called in advance within the time window their company had outlined…great communicated! When Jeff arrived he checked out both chimneys and told me we didn’t need sweeping…everything, to his eye, looked great. Then Jeff went up to inspect our chimney cap, which we knew was problematic. He told us what we needed, what and why he would install what he recommended, showed pics of our nasty-looking chimney cap and our problem…super professional and great guy to work with. Cap install to come but I’m sure it will deserve another 5 star review. Thanks Jeff and English Sweep! It is great to experience a company and person going above and beyond customer expectation.

This was our first time using English Sweep and we definitely recommend them. Office staff (Laura, maybe?) was very helpful in getting us scheduled for an estimate plus cleaning, and was upfront with the cost. Russ was on time, thorough, and really cared about keeping our area tidy! He kept us informed at every step of the process and has a lot of knowledge to share. Estimate was received quickly and seems comparable to others; waiting on other bids to see which we'll go with.

English Sweep, Inc. Has Been Solving Chimney Problems Throughout St. Louis For Decades

We hear about all kinds of problems that fireplace owners face time and time again. Things like…

  • You’re ready to enjoy a cozy fire on a cool evening, only to have smoke billow into your face and living room.
  • You can’t get a fire going to begin with – whether it’s a pilot light that’s out or wood logs that won’t burn well.
  • You finally get a fire going, only to realize it’s barely offering any heat. Where’s it all going?

Whatever the case for you, you’re frustrated. You’re tired of dealing with the same issues time and time again, and you’re wondering why you even have a fireplace if you can’t enjoy it.

Take back control of your space by giving our experts a call. Once you’re sorted, we’ll help ensure these problems don’t happen again down the line. Just book annual inspections with us, and you’ll be set for life.
