The Chimney Smith, recently did work at my residence. It is not often that one comes in contact with a workman of this calibre–hardworking, honest, educated, personable, and not one to sell the customer anything unnecessary. I highly recommend this company. You’ll thank me. Semper Fi.

Who Knows Chimney Fires Better
A chimney sweep is only as good as their training. However, a chimney expert who is also a firefighter knows more of what causes fires and how to avoid them. They see more than just soot and cracks, they see opportunities for danger. Firefighter training is among the toughest for public servants. It not only instills knowledge but also character. That character resonates throughout our company. The Chimney Smith understands that customer satisfaction starts with arriving at your house on time. We schedule our appointments within a small time window so you don’t have to wait around all day and we arrive ready to work. Your service technician will apply the same attention to detail and quality workmanship to every job, large or small, as if your life depends on it! Because in our fire safety profession – it does!
