About Us

I started sweeping chimneys for friends and family in 1978, then went professional in 1980 and was one of the first 500 sweeps in the United States. In the 1980's as the sweeping industry was getting started several of the manufacturers and wholesalers of chimney equipment and products put on training seminars and conventions where we sweeps could exchange information, tips, and knowledge from leaders in the industry. I was asked and accepted to lead several classes and discussions to help other sweeps learn the trade. It was very rewarding. I was elected to serve a position on the Indiana Chimney Sweep Guild. I have been featured on several TV and Radio programs in the past, and have had numerous newspaper articles written about me and chimney safety. I won a first place national award from the August West Association for a Wood Heat Seminar I organized and hosted in the mid 1980's. I also have received 12 Golden Top Hat Awards. Sweeping has become a family business with my sons having worked in the business as they got old enough and now my grandson has joined us. We will always be a family business dedicated to making sure your chimney is safe. Cleaning and inspecting your chimney is only a part of our service, I feel that a larger part of our service is to help our customers with proper education and tips to insure they will be safe from chimney fires and have an enjoyable wood burning experience.
