Satisfied Clients

"It was only after we
had a small dryer fire that we learned our nine year old house had a life threatening disaster waiting to explode. Unknown to us, our dryer vent was completely clogged with lint, causing it to accumulate in the housing.
Joe and Zach Costello
"Thanks for the extra care you took on our job. It was a pleasure working with you. You
are a credit to your profession . . ."

    -- Gabe Murphy,
       Cayucos, CA

Fortunately, someone was home when this buildup ignited, and we suffered no loss of life nor major damage. It took less than 30 minutes to fix this problem, thanks to a quick response and cleanup from, of all people, a chimney sweep.

Big Steve's Chimney Service was able to clear the clog and set things right very quickly. We owe a debt of gratitude for this excellent service. Our home is once again safe ... and our clothes will dry faster and more efficiently now that the clog is gone!"
