Chimney Sweeping reviews in Pittsburgh
Kemal cleaned my chimney, installed 2 caps, & didn't leave a speck of dust/debris behind. I was very impressed with the professionalism and friendliness that he brought to my home that day.
This company is family owned & it is very easy to see how much pride they have in the work they perform. I would highly recommend hiring
He and an assistant unsealed each of the rusted, closed chimneys, cleaned both, installed new damper in each of the chimneys, repaired mortar in each of fireplaces, and painted the gas log fireplace with black paint - vastly improving the looks and making each operational again. He reconnected the gas line that had been dismantled (in the garage/basement), installed the gas log set that we discussed, demonstrated it's use, demonstrated how to use each damper, reviewed safety issues (a few times) including showing me three different places to turn off gas line, and brought Carbon Monoxide
The sealed fireplaces were much more difficult to unseal that he had expected - causing him a few additional hours of work. He also agreed to take off an old glass door from one of the fireplaces - despite each of these things requiring more time, the proposed amount did not change. He stood by his proposal which was greatly appreciated.
Excellent work. He and his assistant were knowledgeable, professional, timely and took great care to use covers for the floor, removing their shoes and using 409 to clean any remaining prints. They were very respectful of our home. I can't say enough about the care and service that
They also showed me how to use chimney. They were very nice, professional, knowledgeable, and reasonably priced.
To pick up where I left off in "what did the provider do?", I would note the following: Several more weeks passed, at which point I received another call from the owner, asserting that he had come to my home and made telephone calls to me to arrange for the work to
be done. He acknowledged that he did not leave a message when he called (and he did not leave a card when he allegedly came to the home). I found this odd and I found no evidence that he had called my home. We finally set up the work to be performed on 25 January 2014. The weather forecast for that day was poor, so I called the company the day before the work was to be done, asked that I receive a call confirming that he would not be coming on the 25th, and asking that we set up another date to have it performed. I did not ever hear from him again. I subsequently notified the company that it is obvious that there is no desire on its part to perform the work and that I do not want this company to do it. I thought someone might contact me with an apology and to admit that this job proposal was botched, but no one could be bothered. I have now wasted valuable time, losing a season in getting this repair performed. I do not understand why a company would waste my time and not be interested in performing an expensive, lucrative job.
He came out the day after I called and looked at our fireplace as well as another chimney outside the kitchen. He checked out the fireplace and then went into the basement to look at an old gas line that has been run into the fireplace in the past. Overall it was exactly what I was looking for - someone to look at everything and tell me about any potential problems. He was able to point out how everything was being used and how it had been used in the past (former
Couldn't have been more friendly or informative and the $69 standard fee was reasonable for the trip out in my opinion.
We called They set an appointment for the next day, which was a pleasant surprise.
They came over, inspected things (which were fine but dirty, thankfully), laid down drop cloths, cleaned the chimney and explained to us how to open and close it when we lit fires. They didn't leave behind a mess, were prompt and courteous.
All in all, satisfied with the job for the price and we will likely use them again next time we need a cleaning.
