Avoid Chimney Sweep and Repair Scams


When it comes to your home you have to be very careful about who you hire for repair work when things go south. Whether it's your AC or your chimney, the contractors you bring in have to come with a solid reputation. We recently heard of the of one of the oldest tricks in the book popping up again. Local police here in Phoenix have reported that a few individuals in a van posing as chimney sweeps approached older residents in person or by phone, claiming the local fire department had deemed their chimney in need of cleaning.


Out of all the years working in this industry we have never heard of fire epartments contracting with local private companies to order chimney cleanings. What’s more, fire departments do not perform random chimney inspections on homes. If for some rare reason your fire department does notice a problem with your chimney, they will contact you directly and not through a third party.


Another great way to avoid getting scammed is to ask any unsolicited individual to provide you with literature about his company. Also, tell them you’ll think it over and ask them to come back another day. Spend that time researching the company or contacting your local authorities about the encounter.


Chimney sweep scams like this and others we’ve seen over the years, only serve to highlight the need to hire a highly rated and trustworthy chimney sweep like Golden's Good Air. It also demonstrates the importance of regular proactive chimney maintenance and repair in Phoenix.


If you’re keeping up with your chimney inspection, cleaning and repair schedule, a scammer can be easily turned away with confidence.
