Casey’s Top Hat Chimney Sweep Business History & Accomplishments
We started the business as Northern New Mexico’s original professional Chimney Sweeps serving the Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico area in 1978 and have been the number one chimney sweeps in Santa Fe for the last 43 years. And in that time, we’ve swept and inspected more than 60,000 chimneys in the Santa Fe area!  No other local chimney sweeps can say that!

Casey’s has always carried the Better Business Bureau’s highest rating and with our 43 years of experience working with many local Fire Departments cleaning wood stoves for the elderly and poor and restoring thousands of Santa Fe’s unique fireplaces, we have learned what to look for to ensure the safety of your home. There is no substitute for experience when dealing with fire!

A stellar reputation in a small town, we’re known for honest assessments and fair pricing. We have regularly maintained Forest Fenn’s gallery and home for 43 years. We also maintain Nedra Matteucci’s home and gallery and rebuilt the beautiful lobby fireplace in the Historic Saint Francis Hotel and were trusted to restore the fireplace in Georgia O’Keef’s home, as well as Paul Allen’s residence.
