25 Years of Exspert repair of chimneys and fireplaces
How did we get started? In 1983, I needed a job. I had heard about cleaning chimneys when we lived in Germany. I used to see the sweeps dressed in there traditional garb, top hat old tails and riding there bicycle. They would carry there tools on there shoulder. This was a rope and brush with a small cannon ball at the end for a weight. This were used to clean the chimney. Unlike in the USA, chimney cleaning is the law in Europe and can only be preformed by a person hired and trained by the state. Member of the National Fire Protection Association since 2008.
