A Message From Chris – Master Chimney Sweep

I handle my business with honesty, integrity, and experience. I have been cleaning chimneys since I was 12 years old, my uncle is a chimney sweep from back in the 70’s. I started cleaning chimneys with him as an apprentice back in 1978 in a little town named Hershey Pennsylvania, I would go on vacation for the summer and work with my uncle for Kean’s Chimney Sweep, which is still in business to this day, based out of Harrisburg PA. Working for my uncles company gave me the experience I needed to start my own company.

My grandfather, Albert Mark Keane, was a licensed solid fuel dealer in Harrisburg, and he distributed fuel oil for Sinclair oil. I remember as a child talking with my grandfather about his industrial experiences delivering fuel oil to residential homes, it’s always fun to hear stories from your grandfather and this grandfather was a great man! I always looked up to him.

I started cleaning chimneys part time in 1985 as a senior in high school in a little town called Elyria Ohio. After graduating high school, I started vocational training at Lorain County Joint Vocational School. My main course study was carpentry where I studied carpentry and the building trades in Oberlin Ohio. After getting my diploma  and my certificate in carpentry, I moved with my family to Arlington Heights Illinois. My father was promoted and transferred to the suburb of Chicago and he encouraged me to come and said there was plenty of opportunity as it was a very large city. I took his advice and started a company called Aumiller’s Chimney Sweep and Repair, my vocational training helped me build my career. Along the way I have always diversified myself and learned more trades associated with chimney service.

I got certified through the Chimney Safety Institute of America & www.certifiedchimneyprofessionals.com

I really appreciate you taking the time to read my experience and my history I look forward to helping you with your chimney or fireplace project with my signature on it!  and I guarantee that you will get the best of me.

Thank you,

Chris Aumiller
