    Could have been a little more forthcoming with facts upfront.
    They identified a problem that needed to be fixed before we could use it again. We asked if we fixed it, would we be able to use it again right away as we wanted it available for Christmas Eve. We were told yes. So we scheduled the fix. Only after they did the repair and were getting paid did they tell us there was a 72 hour waiting period. Had we known that up front we would have not bothered before Christmas to worry about it. I will find other ways to fix the remaining pieces on my own rather than bring them back.

    First time user, lifetime client
    Very punctual and prompt. Efficient and educated. Were very candid about the status of my chimney and fireplace, which I appreciated. Did not try to sell me anything overpriced or unnecessary, gave me competitive quotes and helpful information. Will use in the future.

    These guys are so amazing . Not only we're they super affordable ($150 cheaper than other companies) . But they were always quick to either answer my calls or call me back. I didn't have to wait a week for someone to call me back. But the gentleman who came out were very nice , along with very professional. They actually got there a little early ( which I deeply appreciate,rather being late) . They were quick and thorough. Can't say enough wonderful things about this company. I will 100% use them again next year.

    Our chimney sweep was very thorough and fast. He explained why our blockage in our chimney was so bad and gave us some good tips to prevent it from happening again. He kept everything clean as he was sweeping the chimney and made sure everything was neat before leaving

    The team worked quickly and they were great to have over. I had the project bid on by another company and chimney sweep used higher quality materials and they were less expensive. Highly recommend!

    Total waste. Had to find someone more reasonable.
    Corey L. Jun 4, 2015

    Mr. Samford, I do apologize you found our service a "total waste"! Its my understand your wanting to sell a house, and we found things wrong with your chimney. When dealing with chimney we can NOT cut corners, I couldn't sleep at night knowing that I let things pass in a chimney inspection just because we want to make friends. I've been in the chimney business for 20 years for a reason If you don't want to know the truth please don't call us. We do not try to sell anything that isn't needed, that's why we take photos and document everything to show you what we are talking about. Leaving a bad review for everyone to see if not very professional, please believe we absolutely did everything you hired us to do. Please check our review's every where else and you'll find in the 20 years of doing this, this is the first bad review we have had and its a same that thumbtack will not remove reviews that aren't true.

    I had my dryer vent cleaned from the company, before it seemed as if my laundry wouldn't dry within being ran through a cycle. It would take two cycles to get them ,completely dry, now it is as if I had a new dryer. If only I had know about this before I would have been getting this service provided earlier! Will definitely be keeping this maintained with this company, technicians were polite and professional. Would recommend this company to anyone!

    Had our chimney pressure washed and water proofed. We had a horrible smell in our house and in our chimney inspection they told us that water was getting down inside the brick, and that the water mixed with just a little creosote can make the chimney smell. Had this done a few months ago and I must say it worked very well.

    I called a chimney sweep to come clean my chimneys and they did a fantastic job. Pretty fast and nice and clean. They told me what the problems and what I need to do to fix them, I will surly have them come out and do the work needed and pass them on anyone looking for chimney work

    Just recently started having work done by Charlotte Chimney Sweep, couldn't have asked for a better company to have the job done. Very professional, clean, and kind. From the moment I booked my appointment I was assured I was getting the best in Charlotte.

With a 10 vent minimum. $50.00 each system if you want Sanitized.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Went to work for a local chimney company, they didn't have anyone that worked at the company that could get certified. Everyone had failed the test a few times. Not even the owner was certified. So I took it as a challenge to past the state certification. Found out there's more to chimneys than I thought. Past the test on my first try with only missing two questions. Fell in love with something I'm good at!
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have cleaned chimneys for some of the richest people in Charlotte and we also have cleaned chimneys in not so good neiborhoods. They both get the same service and attention.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We just installed some of the most beautiful copper caps on a historical house near Queens college. They turned out awesome. If your over that way look for the huge copper Chimney caps.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Cheapest price isn't always the best choice. Also chimney company's with high over head have too many people to pay so your just paying more for the same chimney cleaning. We are locally own and operated.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Do you have an open fireplace or a woodstoves insert.
