Dallas Chimney Sweep Inspections
Masters Services will show up on time to inspect your fireplace and chimney. We will be uniformed and in a logo’g truck (have some new trucks waiting for logo’s lol). We will inspect the chimney structure for cracks, rust, water leaks, broken components, and if an animal has been in the chimney. Our inspections are emailed with an electric inspection that will have images. Our Dallas chimney sweep inspectors all have been trained by Chad and have trained on all chimney requirement codes.
Masters Services will only sweep (clean) a chimney that passes current safety codes from the NFPA 211: Standards for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents, and Solid Fuel-Burning Appliances. Masters Services does not certify the fireplace and chimney for usage due to after we leave the usage is out of out control. We do however give full inspection reports on our findings to ensure a safe functioning fireplace and chimney.

Professional Dallas Chimney Sweep Service
Chad and Christa have built Masters Services on values, professionalism, kindness, customer acknowledgement, and bride. Everything we have done is from the point of view of how they want to be treated by a service company. Nobody wants to wait around for an all day service call. That is why we only give two hour arrival times. If late we will call before to inform the customer. We are not perfect but we try to keep our times. As the largest Dallas chimney sweep we are not the most expensive but not a discount service. Supporting Masters Services is also supporting about 30-50 employees and their families. We take pride in being a small business in Dallas. Our goal is to retain as many seasonal employees as we possible can. In 2016 for the upcoming 2017 season were almost able to keep all of our installers. This will translate into better and faster chimney services for Dallas.
We have been able to in September of 2017 send a few crews to Houston to support the Hurricane Harvey efforts for chimney leaks. Houston does not have many chimney services so for a Dallas chimney sweep to come and support Houston with all of its leaks was tremendously helpful in a quick response.
