Today it’s all about true relationships, true partnerships, real communication, great work and measurable results. And OK, a few choice words of praise from our clients.
“Extremely knowledgeable, professional and clean. They are not finished yet, as they had to treat my chimney with a chemical to loosen the creosote and will be back on December 20, 2008 to clean it. I was very impressed with two gentlemen who came out to do the work. I have no reason to expect that their work in cleaning the chimney will be any less than their first visit to treat the creosote. I would highly recommend them.”
“This was my second time using Chadds Ford Chimney Sweep. We had our air ducts, dryer vent and chimney cleaned. Kevin was clean, prompt and efficient. I have white carpeting in the living room, and you would never know they were there cleaning soot and ash!”
“The quality of the service was very good. Mr. Knight looked at all four of our chimneys and only recommended that one be cleaned. Although he was running late, he was kind enough to call well in advance and was very professional. We will certainly use him in the future and feel lucky to have found such a great company to work with.”
