Above all and most important is our commitment to making sure your fireplace, stove unit or gas insert is safe. We use state of the art cleaning equipment consisting of heavy duty flexible rods, various sized flue cleaning brushes and a powerful creosote sweeping vacuum system which removes dangerous excess creosote resulting in a safe and functioning unit.
We also offer live and dead animal removal, decorative spark arrestor chimney caps which prevent critters from entering, promoting safety and water damage prevention.
I've had A.B. Richards clean my chimney for several years now and they have done a great job. Even making sure that all the mess is cleaned up leaving no evidence of them being there. They will be the ones that I call every year.
They cleaned my chimney and did some repair work. Very professional, put down tarps and blankets to make sure there wasn't a big mess, and pricing was very reasonable. They were very interactive and explained to me what the problems were and what my options were to fix the problem. I would hire these guys again, and I will probably use them for the other services they perform, such as rain gutter cleaning.
Bartholomew does excellent work and is great to work with. He's a kind man by nature, it's easy to see that he really cares about his customers. My experience has been that he always goes the extra mile to make sure his customers are satified. I highly endorse the service he provides.
