About us

Founded in Clarklake in 1980, Clean Sweeps of Michigan was started by a local fireman before being sold to long-time employee and current owner Cliff Slagle. We are proud to provide high quality chimney and dryer vent services to our friends, family, and neighbors throughout Mid-Michigan, Northern Indiana, and Northern Ohio. Along the way, we have built an award-winning chimney service company with top reviews on Google and Angie’s List.

As part of our commitment to quality, our team is dedicated to keeping chimneys and dryer vents as clean and safe as possible. Our team of chimney sweeps are certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America, or CSIA; our sweeps are also members of the National Chimney Sweep Guild and members of a variety of other professional guilds and organizations.

Our services

Clean Sweeps of Michigan offers a full range of chimney and fireplace services. From regular maintenance to extensive repairs, our team of chimney technicians can care for every part of your fireplace system. Some of our chimney services include:

  • Chimney sweepings and inspections. Chimney sweeping is an important part of regular chimney maintenance. A chimney sweeping removes soot, ash, and creosote from the flue; this allows the fireplace to burn safely and efficiently. During a chimney inspection, accessible portions of the interior and exterior of the flue are checked for signs of damage or deterioration.
  • Chimney rebuilding and restoration. Whether your chimney is in need of minor repairs or a major rebuild, our master masons can restore your fireplace and chimney to its former glory.
  • New chimney construction. Want to add a chimney to your home or business? Our masons can help make your dreams a reality and create a chimney system that will last for years to come!

We service dryer vents, too!

We aren’t just a chimney company – we service dryer vents, too! Having dryer vents professionally cleaned can help dryers operate more efficiently while also significantly reducing the risk of dryer vent fire.

During regular use, the same lint that accumulates in the lint trap begins to accumulate in the dryer vent. Over time, this lint can create blockages that forces the dryer to work harder, eventually creating super-heated air that can ignite the highly flammable lint. Likewise, these blockages can cause clothes to not dry completely, be left with a musty odor, or take longer than one cycle to dry.

Why choose a local company

When looking for a chimney sweep, hiring locally matters. There are often a number of “drive-through” chimney sweeps that come in and out of an area during the fall and winter. However, these chimney sweeps are usually not familiar with the area, the weather, and the unique characteristics of fireplaces or chimneys in the region.

Likewise, when you support a local company you are directly supporting the community! We live and raise our families in the same areas we work; our team of trained chimney technicians are dedicated to providing our neighbors with high quality fireplace services year-round.

At Clean Sweeps of Michigan, we are proud to be involved in the communities we serve. We are proud to partner with a variety of local organizations and associations including Jackson Christian School, Jackson Area Rec Baseball Sponsors, Jackson Area Chamber Of Commerce, Brooklyn – Irish Hills Chamber of Commerce, Washtenaw County BRAGG Ann Arbor.
