We began over
half a century ago...

Founded in 1969, Fireplace Solutions The Chimney Sweeper is SoCal’s expert in the sales, service and maintenance of fireplaces, fire pits, fire features and chimneys.

The mission we set for ourselves in 1969 when we serviced our first fireplace is the same today: Being your most reliable source of knowledge and expertise for everything fireplace-related. We felt then, as we do now, that we want to build lasting relationships with our clients. As LA’s original chimney service company, we have continuously expanded our skill set and professional network to stay on top of all the innovations and changes in the industry and in our neighborhoods.

Having serviced over 350K fireplaces, fire pits and chimneys, we bring unrivaled experience and passion for the craft.

Our reputation within the fireplace industry bears witness to us being at the forefront of new innovations, risk management and concierge service. This prominence provides us access to an unparalleled range of products or equipment to address everything from new installations to historical renovations in individual homes, HOA complexes and/or large hospitality and commercial businesses.







Risk management matched with aesthetic sensibilities.

Mastering the element of fire to enhance today’s modern lifestyle is no small feat. Whether it is used to heat, provide a blissful ambience, or cook outdoors, we come with solutions to maximize the benefits fire features can bring, and ensure the highest safety standards are met to protect people, homes, and businesses at all times.

As a CA state licensed contractor (# 1014493), we carry General Liability, Workers’ Compensation, and Commercial Truck Insurance, so you can rest assured when we’re working on your residential, HOA, or commercial project.
