About the Chimney Specialist

Hi, my name is Rick Burns and I’ve been a chimney sweeper for over 30 years. Recently I decided to take my talents to Florida to retire happily. However, I soon realized that retired life is kind of boring. That’s why I started the Chimney Specialist.

With all the years of experience under my belt and all the people I’ve met in the industry, I thought why hoard of this great information to myself? So, I started this blog to help bring light to some of the most forgotten areas of the home – fireplaces and chimneys. A lot of people don’t know too much about their chimneys and often get duped into scam repairs. That’s where I come in handy.

The information you’ll find on this site is true and trustworthy. I’ve gathered information from my own experiences as well as from others I’ve worked with along the way. Enjoy!
