    I’VE BEEN CONNED BY 2 CHIMNEY SWEEP CO. FIRST WAS BARRY JOHN CHIMNEY SWEEP OUT OF FRANKLIN. WE SPENT $2000.00 FOR INSTALLATION OF A WOOD STOVE. EVERY YEAR THEY CLEANED IT. SMOKE STARTED COMING IN. WE LEARNED THAT THEY NEVER CLEANED THE CHIMNEY. WE WERE RIPE FOR A CHIMNEY FIRE. ATLANTIC CHIMNEY THEN REINSTALLED THE WOOD STOVE. $2000.00 THEY TOO, CHARGED FOR A CLEANING, THEY WERE PAID. CHIMNEY WAS AGAIN FULL OF CRESOLTE. SHEILA, OFFICE MANAGER, WOULD NOT LET ME SPEAK TO THE BOSS TO WORK THIS SITUATION OUT. SHE SENT ME A CHECK FOR ONLY A PORTION OF A CHIMNEY CLEANING CHARGE AND TOLD GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. WHERE CAN I FIND AN HONEST CHIMNEY SWEEP?
