We asked Lou Curley of Lou Curley's Chimney Service in Pennsylvania to tell us a little bit about himself...
What is a question you get asked most about being a chimney sweep/chimney sweeping?
Typical Mary Poppins/top hat nonsense questions.
What advice do you wish you had received when you were getting started?
When I first started in the industry, I worked for somebody else. I wish I'd had access to training through CSIA (other than just the manual), NFI, and FIRE. I learned more after I started my business than I did working 12 years for somebody else....
