Dishonest? 11/17/2010

We let them do a cleaning. They frightened us with warning of critically needed work totaling more than $6000. Then they came over with TV camera to show problems, which of course I couldn't see but I am a lay person. This 2 minute operation cost $150 but would be deducted, they said, from the 6000 if we did the work. On recommendation of our handyman of 20 years, we got a second opinion from a very well established, family owned firm in Skokie. They said that at most we needed $1200 worth of work (now done) and that, by the way, the cleaning done previously by "ET" was not very adequate. I guess they figured we had the money so soaked us good, but thank heavens, only for the cleaning and bogus TV show : $250, not $6000! more

over charge and check their Better Business record 9/27/2008

I made the mistake of not checking Better Business. I called to get a quote and told them I have the $40 discount, they jackup the price when they bill you ($165 before -$40). btw, there is a travel fee add on top of the bill that they didn't tell you. very nice people but I wont be calling them again. Pros: done their job Cons: expensive and inaccurate quote more

Too high priced for a job that is barely 10 minutes 7/17/2008

Not sure if its a norm to charge exorbitant prices for chimney cleaning, but he was in my house for less than 5 minutes and charged $130 (after $40 discount) for that. He just vacuumed the fireplace, put brush all the way through the chimney and took it out. Thats it. Not to mention, he came in 3 hours late. My lesson out of this: 1) Dont call for chimney unless you have been using your fireplace a lot - more than 60-80 fires. 2) Use a mask and take a look inside your chimney once to make sure it does need cleaning. Cons: Too expensive, and very late for appointment more
