Chimney Safety is NOT optional for AMS!

When you light up your fireplace, stove, or insert, you want to be able to relax and enjoy the warmth and ambiance it provides, without worry. Advanced Maintenance Services can give you the peace of mind you need to do just that. For years Todd Nix and the AMS team have been providing quality, mess-free chimney sweeping services by using specialized tools, tarps, and lots of care. Our chimney sweeps remove soot, creosote and flue blockages to get you ready for another one of our cold Indiana winters. Chimneys are both a beautiful and functional feature of many households, and the AMS team strives to maintain both qualities through their services.

Regardless of fuel type, your appliance produces byproducts that can build up along the flue and other chimney and appliance components. Not only that, but animals can get in your chimney and build messy nests. Scheduling regular chimney inspections and sweepings can help you keep your chimney clear so that you can enjoy your fireplace for the long haul.

We've swept thousands of chimneys for satisfied customers and provide the highest level of customer service and care. And with us in your home, you can be confident that the entire sweeping process will be mess-free!

Safety Inspections

Step one is to provide you with a thorough, professional inspection so we can give you an accurate assessment of your chimney's condition. You'll receive a complete report which includes recommended chimney service.

Sweep & Maintain

Sweeping a fireplace does not create a mess because we take extra precautions to protect your floor and direct soot and debris into our powerful sweeper system. After we thoroughly inspect and sweep the inside of your chimney, from the firebox floor to the chimney top, we hand brush the firebox and smoke chamber, and vacuum with a multi-layer HEPA filter to control dust.

Finally, we'll inspect your chimney, checking the mortar work, brickwork, crown, flue, smoke chamber, firebox, hearth and surrounding combustibles. Any damage or needed repairs we find are documented in a comprehensive written report. Don’t put off this very important service — Contact AMS to schedule your chimney sweeping appointment!

Build & Repair

Deteriorating brick and mortar devalues your home. It's NOT a do-it-yourself kind of project. Our masons have decades of experience. Our affordable chimney service is the wise choice to maintain a high-quality fireplace and avoid potential disasters from attempts to personally clean your chimney.


Chimney waterproofing protects your home investment. In fact, masonry chimney protection is your first line of defense against costly repairs and rebuilds. We'll find and repair hard-to-see cracks in the chimney crown that can result in freeze/thaw damage. AMS can stop this deterioration to prevent moisture damage.

Masonry Work

Masonry work and repairs are often needed on chimneys and fireplaces due to fire damage, water damage, improper construction, or poor maintenance. We have experience with all kinds of fireplace and chimney repairs.

Chimney Relining

Chimney relining is a cost-effective way to essentially replace your entire chimney. High grade stainless steel and aluminum liners are inserted into your chimney to exit the heat and flue gases from your appliance and home. A stainless steel chimney cap and properly constructed chimney crown prevents damaging water penetration and denies access to birds, other animals and debris. Affordable and effective!
