Top Notch cleaned my chimney and woodstove in November of 2012. The woodstove was fairly new, but I had no idea when the chimney was last cleaned. Tom was very friendly and happily explained everything to me. He even offered advice on how to keep the chimney clean and gave me a powder to help keep it clean. He did an excellent job, and as a woman who was 7 months pregnant at the time and wanted everything perfect before my baby girl arrived, he met my challenge and exceeded my expectations. I sleep better at night knowing my home is safe and clean. I will definitely be calling Tom again next year for another service. I highly recommend Top Notch for any chimney, fireplace, and woodstove needs. Thanks again, Tom for your exceptional job!
