Pellet Stove Cleaning Service for Homes in Westminster, MD

When the temperature drops and winter settles in, many families turn to pellet stoves for efficient and cozy heating at their homes in Westminster, Maryland. These versatile appliances provide warmth by burning compressed wood pellets, offering a convenient and eco-friendly alternative to traditional heating methods.

However, like any heating system, pellet stoves require regular maintenance to ensure they operate at their best while maintaining safety standards. With our pellet stove cleaning service, you can have peace of mind knowing that when you use your stove, you’ll be warm and safe!

Why Your Pellet Stove Needs Cleaning

Cleaning is crucial for maintaining the efficiency and safety of your pellet stove. Here’s what’s happening inside your pellet stove and why it needs cleaning:

  • Ash accumulation: The burning process produces ash, which can accumulate in the combustion chamber and hinder efficiency.
  • Creosote buildup: While pellet stoves produce less creosote than traditional wood stoves, it can still accumulate in the chimney or vent pipe. Creosote is flammable and poses a fire hazard.
  • Airflow blockage: Over time, dust and debris can clog vents and fans, reducing your stove's ability to distribute heat.

How Often Your Pellet Stove Should Be Cleaned

Cleaning frequency can vary based on usage, but here are some general guidelines you can follow to keep your pellet stove in good and safe working order:


  • Empty the ash pan to prevent ash buildup.
  • Wipe down the glass door to maintain visibility.


  • Clean the burn pot and heat exchanger.
  • Check and clean the venting system.


  • Inspect and clean the venting system.
  • Check and clean the combustion blower.


  • Have a professional pellet stone cleaning service inspect and clean your entire system, including the chimney or vent pipe.

Avoid the Dangers of a Dirty Pellet Stove

Your pellet stove is an important appliance, and neglecting to clean it can lead to:

Reduced Efficiency

Accumulated ash and debris hinder your stove's efficiency, leading to decreased heat output.

Fire Hazard

Creosote buildup in the chimney or vent pipe can ignite, posing a serious fire hazard for your family and home.

Component Damage

Failure to clean components like the combustion blower or igniter can result in costly damage and frustrating malfunctions.

Health Risks

Poorly maintained stoves may release pollutants, affecting your indoor air quality and potentially causing health issues for your family.

By adhering to a regular stove cleaning schedule, you can make sure that your pellet stove operates efficiently, safely, and provides reliable heat for your home. If in doubt, consult your stove's manual or seek professional advice for specific maintenance guidelines. With our pellet stove cleaning service, you can enjoy worry-free warmth!

Trusted by some of the biggest names in the business!
Honest company that took care of my clients on both a buy and sell. Reasonable, solid repairs, responsive and definitely recommending to other clients.

Cheryl M.

I am so happy I found this company after being referred to Miller's from a real estate agent. From start to finish, I have had a great experience. Chris provided me with an honest and reasonable estimate, Rocky took great care preforming the work to my chimney and was very professional and conscientious. He went out of his way to help me schedule additional work I had asked him about for my pellet stove. Andrew and Brandon arrived promptly to clean my pellet stove and were very helpful with providing me information on care and operation. I am so appreciative for such professional service.

Exceeded all of our expectations! Chris put together a package deal that couldn't be refused! Jesse and Jimmy, the installers, were great! The actual installation was the easiest part of their day. Required 4 guys to get the 550 lb pellet stove up 12 steps, I'm sure there was some moaning, but never in front of myself, very professional. After installed, Jesse and Jimmy took an extra 90 minutes and made sure the stove was running properly. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MILLER'S CHIMNEY; we are hiring them to put in a second pellet stove.

Chris and Jimmy do an excellent job. I would have them come work for me anytime and do my chimney again.

Always professional and knowledgeable. As a realtor, they have been invaluable in helping me to help my clients!

Jeannette W.

Just had a service call with Brandon Mills and his helper. They were very nice and quickly diagnosed the gas fireplace problem. A simple fix. Brandon also took the time to explain why the problem occurred and made a few suggestions. We will be giving a call back to Miller's for any fireplace service needs in the future!!! Additionally, the person that took my call and scheduled my appointment was excellent. Five star service all the way around!!!

Thomas B.

Chris and Jimmy are the best! Very professional job, honest assessment of my 22-year-old fireplace and no up–selling on repairs you really don't need that I have experienced with other chimney firms. Very fair prices and you simply cannot go wrong using this firm and Chris!!

Michael C.

Great service. Very timely and knowledgeable. Always a pleasure dealing with Miller's. Would recommend them to anyone.

Gregg H.

Miller's did a cleaning and changed out some piping for me and made the whole process very easy and painless from the front office to the men doing the work. I would recommend them to family & friends and will definitely use them again next year! Keep up the great job!!!!

Esther K.

Excellent service! Very friendly staff. Pleasure to deal with.

Miller's chimney is the best!

Chris K.

Would definitely recommend using this company. I was referred to them through another happy customer by chance and am very happy I called. We just had a blaze king wood insert, liner, and crown installed and every step of the process was explained and completed professionally. We had been trying to get this done for the last 8 months and had nearly given up due to "other" companies lack of follow through with everything from quotes to helping us find the right product. Right from the start, Chris came out and had us a quote in hand the same day before he departed. Not a single other company we had out here was able to do that! We knew what we wanted, they had one, and the price was right, so pulled the trigger right away. On game day, Chris came out to help Quinten and Eric with moving the heavy stuff and then they got to work. Solid work done on our complex job, and they even pointed out issues with the bricks on our chimney and ensured they were replaced with new bricks. It's hard to find contractors with ethics that do professional work nowadays who do what's right instead of taking the quick buck just to get done faster. I would do business with this company again and recommend them to anyone in need of a new wood burning stove. Shout out to Quentin and Eric for the install and to Chris for making happy customers!
