BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT: Chim Chimney Chimney Services
Full-service chimney sweep firm repairs, restores and rebuilds with safety at its core
Typically one’s thoughts in late March lean more toward daffodils and campfires than home fireplaces and chimneys. But unseasonably cool temperatures – and yes, even snow flurries – have seen more than one Williamson County fireplace being put back into use this spring.
Chim Chimney, a full-service chimney sweep company, wants you to enjoy your fireplace not just this week but for years to come – and with the complete satisfaction that your chimney is safe.
Founded in 2002, Nashville-based Chim Chimney is a full-service chimney sweep company that repairs, restores and rebuilds chimneys and fireplace systems. It also cleans and inspects dryer vent systems.
The chimney is one of the most taken-for-granted parts of your home, Chim Chimney owner Gene Kaposy shares. But chimneys are far from the passive black holes that most people assume them to be. They perform several vital functions, and their simple appearance misrepresents their complex construction and performance requirements.
“A chimney deteriorated by constant exposure to the weather can be a potential safety hazard,” Kaposy says. Weather-damaged lining systems, flue obstructions and loose masonry materials all present a threat to residents.
When you call Chim Chimney, don’t expect the fictional Burt of Mary Poppins fame to show up at your front door with a top hat, however. Chim Chimney prides itself on its professionalism and service guarantee.
“We want our potential customers to know what we do, why we do it and for them to have complete confidence in our company,” Kaposy says of his fully licensed, bonded and insured company.
All Chim Chimney sweeps are Chimney Safety Institute of America certified. “Obtaining this certification requires a sweep to go through extensive training and pass a series of exams on industry codes and standards,” Kaposy says. Certification also requires the sweep to sign the CSIA Code of Ethics and maintain a required level of continuing education.
“Our customers deserve the best and that’s what we intend to give them,” says Kaposy, who has been in the business 17 years.
“We will never suggest unnecessary or overpriced repairs. We guarantee all of our work with a 100 percent satisfaction promise.”
While Kaposy would love to have your business, even more importantly, he says, he wants the community to be aware of the dangers of chimney and dryer vent fires.
“These are two of the most deadly and yet two most ignored appliances in every home,” Kaposy says.
