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.
We first encountered Bart when we moved to Utah in 2004. We wanted to get the chimney cleaned the following spring because we had no idea just how dirty it was or when the last time it had been cleaned before we moved into the house. Ironically, we found his business in the yellow pages and not knowing any other businesses just picked him alphabetically. We have used him every year since to clean our chimney and occasionally clean our windows. Bart has always been on time, his work very professional (my wife loves the fact that he spreads tarps all over the basement floor to protect the carpet before pulling the insert out) and he's always friendly and works quickly. We would not even think of using anyone else.Jonathan & Lisa
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.
I have a 40' chimney and Bartholomew came the day I called, did all the work needed, trimmed the vines around my chimney flue's and raked up after the work was complete. I would highly recommend him to do any job you have. Honest guy and went the extra mile for me.
