I asked her to please contact her boss and see if st the very least my stove could be cleaned so I could it safely. I again stated my disbelief that with little rain and NO WIND and the fact 90% of all work was inside I could not the appointment I made three weeks ago was being canceled. Note I have video abd oics for review. It has been one hour since the phone call. Still no wind little rain and no call back

On 11/27 all apointments for stove and/or chimney work were canceled due to severe weather conditions. Calls were made to cancel & reschedule all 15 apointments for that day between 8-9am that morning.
Mr ***** was rescheduled two or three days later and service has since been provided. As far as I know he's all set.

This is SOP for my business with major safety concerns regarding chimney sweeping activities. Every potential customer is made aware that weather is a consideration and that only in emergency situations will we attempt to work thru bad weather.
I know for a fact that all other chimney service businesses were shut down on that day, as they should have been. Unfortunately I was the only company with Mr. ***** on my schedule.
Furthermore, if this complaint goes on my record I will make sure Mr. *****'s name and addrees gets to every chimney service business office within 30 miles of his location. This system is broken and needs to be looked at.

Best Regards,
