About Us

Lou Curley began sweeping the chimneys of Delaware County and the Main Line in 1996 as part of The County Sweep family. In 2009, when The County Sweep closed its doors, Lou founded Lou Curley’s Chimney Service so he could continue providing top-notch chimney care to his neighbors in the greater Philadelphia area.

Since that time, Lou has traveled all over the country, getting the best possible training, and obtaining all of the available industry certifications. In fact, we’re the only company in Pennsylvania to have earned all three Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) certifications, all three National Fireplace Institute (NFI) certifications (earning all three makes us NFI Master Hearth Specialists), and all three Fireplace Inspection, Research, & Education Service (F.I.R.E.) certifications.

Our certifications include all of these:

We also completed the following classes:

  • CSIA “Chimney Physics”
  • CSIA “Relining Masonry Chimneys with Stainless Steel”
  • CSIA “Inspection & Report Writing”

Education is incredibly important to us because we know that it’s our knowledge that allows us to take care of our customers and their heating systems. That’s why we also maintain memberships with the Mid-Atlantic Chimney Association, the National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG), the Mid-Atlantic Hearth Patio & Barbecue Association (MAHPBA), the Hearth Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA), and the Pennsylvania Guild of Professional Chimney Sweeps.

Some of the services we specialize in include chimney sweeping, chimney inspections, smoke stain removal, smoke/draft problems, damper replacement, chimney & furnace/boiler flue relining, firebox repairs, smoke chamber repairs, chimney leak repairs, Ahren-Fire fireplace restoration, and dryer vent cleaning. Just let us know what you need and we’ll be at your door ready to help.
