Additional Notes

Complaint: We bought a **** ****** wood burning stove in October 2012 and wanted to be diligent about maintaining it for the safety of our family. So at the end of the season, on April 9, 2013 Dan from Chimney Champs came out to do a cleaning. I was busy caring for my 3 small children at the time and didn't supervise the cleaning because I knew that I hired a professional and I trusted him to do the job correctly. He was very kind and professional, and I was impressed with the cleanliness of the team both in appearance and after the work was completed. In October 2013 we started up the wood stove for the first fire of the season, and after awhile the closed stove started billowing thick acrid smoke into our home in such a manner we thought we must have a chimney fire. My children were so scared and we called 911. Five firetrucks and 30 firemen responded to the out of control situation. After a thorough inspection, they confirmed that the chimney was indeed clean from our servicing in April. However, we discovered that the inner chambers of the stove remained hard packed with ash because they were not cleaned out by Chimney Champs. My receipt states that I paid $105.35 for a Wood Stove Cleaning... but my stove was NOT cleaned and my family was put at tremendous risk for this. We are greatful that we were not sleeping when this event occurred. I wrote a heartfelt letter of concern detailing these events and mailed it to Chimney Champs along with my original receipt for service, and I am most disappointed that they have not contacted me concerning this. Therefore, I have decided to contact the BBB.

Desired Settlement: I would like them to come out and sweep the chimney free of charge (not the stove, we will clean out the inside chambers ourselves this time now that we learned how).OrI would like to be refunded the original cost of the cleaning because my receipt states that I paid for a wood stove cleaning and the wood stove was NOT cleaned.

Hi ********, this is ***** with Chimney Champs llc,  we have resolved this problem with ******** ******. 

Consumer Response:  
Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. The Chimney Champs worked very hard to resolve the situation.  They are good hardworking people with good intentions.  We all learned from the situation that occurred  and now we all know that some wood stoves have inner chambers that must be dissassembled and emptied out annually in addition to having the chimney swept. 

I would definately recommend their services in the future, and would hire them again to sweep my chimney pipe.  Their workers are very courteous, professional, and extremely neat.  
Thank you Chimney Champs for following up in this issue~ your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated!
