Slow-burning chimney fires are often not visible, but they can reach temperatures that cause just as much damage to the chimney and other parts of the house as larger fires. These disasters can be avoided with proper cleaning by a professional chimney sweep. Noah Reese, with Chimney Sweeping by Mike Wood, has been inspecting and cleaning chimneys in San Antonio and the surrounding areas for 12 years.
Company founder, Mike Wood, passed away in 2011. He started the business in 1980. Reese, who had been friends with Wood for decades, began his career by helping Wood, who gave him on the job training.

Reese said as a good rule of thumb, homeowners should have a professional sweep inspect their chimney about every two years.
