Chimney Sweep serving the Nashville, Brentwood, & Franklin, TN Areas


Sweeps & Ladders is owned and operated by Tommy & Beka Nelms and is a full-service chimney sweep company. Tommy has lived in Williamson County all of his life and was also a firefighter for this county for over 13 years!

So, are you wondering why Tommy’s firefighting experience makes him a better chimney sweep? Well, in order to know how to prevent a fire from happening you need to first understand how a fire starts and how a fire behaves. Tommy’s firsthand experience fighting fires has taught him both. Now, he offers everything from chimney relining to safety inspections to the Franklin, Nashville, and Brentwood, TN areas.
Losing your home due to a fire is a terrible thing, and it has always been Tommy’s intent to bring his passion for fighting fires over into a career on how to prevent them.

How many other chimney sweeps out there can say they have fought a chimney fire, or know what a fire does when a dryer vent ignites? Trust only Sweeps & Ladders with something as precious as you and your family's well-being. We are a safety-first company and will bring that knowledge to each job.
