I really liked this company. The quality of their work was first rate. I really appreciated their expertise and professionalism. The folks who did the work were extremely courteous, informative, and very neat considering working in fireplaces and chimneys is not the cleanest job. Their pricing was fair and competitive. As much as I would have liked to give them 5 stars all around, we had a communication disconnect. Although they ultimately dealt with it in a highly satisfactory manner, in the process it caused much consternation at a time that was overall quite stressful for us. We were in the process of selling our home, which sold almost immediately resulting in a move-out schedule far more compressed than we had anticipated. Repair of the chimney and fireplaces was the major contingency on the sales contract. After an extensive and thorough inspection, their estimate for returning them to working order was $4,100. I relayed this to my realtor who felt that the scope of work could be reduced and still meet the contingency. I discussed this with American Chimney Sweeps, and they gave me a revised quote that was about half the original. I made a point of explaining to them that, were we staying in the home, we would proceed with the full scope of work, but at this point we wanted to do only the minimum necessary to satisfy the contingency, i.e., "Inspect and clean chimney and fireplaces and return to working order." With this understanding, we scheduled the work. Upon completion the technician wrote on the receipt that the fireplaces were unsafe and constituted a fire hazard absent the completion of the full scope of work as specified in the original quote. Clearly there was a serious miscommunication between the technical and the management people at American Chimney Sweeps. In my attempts to resolve this I spent more time speaking to their answering machine than to company personnel. The balance of the work was finally scheduled and completed on a timely basis. Again, the quality of the work was excellent. They apologized profusely and gave us a discount for the inconvenience. We prefer and like to support small businesses like this one, which happens to be woman-owned. Were we staying in Northern Virginia, we wouldn't hesitate to use them again and highly recommend them. No company is perfect. Mistakes and miscommunication occur. The difference is in how they deal with them. American Chimney Sweeps resolved this quite satisfactorily and did redeem themselves.

They came promptly, were polite, and explained clearly. They took extra time for no charge to wait around until Animal Control came.

The work they did was good once they finally kept an appointment and made it out to my house. They did not show up for the initial consult appointment. I called and they said my appointment got canceled. They were over an hour late to the rescheduled consult appointment. Then they never showed up on the day they were supposed to come and do the work. I called an hour after the scheduled appointment window and was told the crews were sent home that morning because it was raining. My appointment window was 1pm-3pm. It stopped raining at noon, so I assumed they would still come. But I never got a phone call letting me know they were not coming. I took the afternoon off from work to basically wait at home for them to not show up. If they would have called me in the morning when they sent crews home to let me know. I would not have been upset. Their scheduling department and customer service need some serious work. For that reason I would never use them again or recommend them.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
