While they did try to sell some extra services at the end, they weren't too pushy about it. I'd give them an A. One problem I had was that the guy who works their phone was not the best.”
“Chim Chimney have been here for several years now. They clean our chimney every year, and if there's any other maintenance that needs to be done, I have them do that as well.
