I hope everyone's New Year is off to a wonderful start! Mine is definitely going and I have no complaints, not that I would (complain) anyway, for no one listens!! lol
I want to state that I've truly created this blog in order to evolve and make the American business landscape that much better for both the consumer and the business alike! It is not possible on my own, for everyone must take a part, as is with every important aspect of life.
I've been in the business world for long enough to tell you that things definitely are not what they always seem to be! We must all research to the best of our abilities, to find a proper, ethical company that actually delivers on their promises. This rings true for every business, in every area!
I cannot tell you how many advertisements I've come across that promise this, that and the other thing and have completely failed me in the end. This rings very true in the chimney sweeping business. What I've come across in this industry at times is very unethical to say the least! There are many companies out there that do not do what they say or imply. even worse many of them did terrible, if non-existent work to the customer’s chimneys, fireplaces, you name it!
Many of these companies still operate today and will continue to do so! Their advertising states one, if not several things, and they deliver on none. It is not right to say the least, however, they continue to get away with it for the system allows it.
I've run into way to many customers who have been taken by this fraud in the Chicagoland area. I've had to clean up other companies messes, seemingly more often than not, which costs the customer even more money, such a shame.
That is not to say that all chimney companies are bad or fraudulent. There are MANY companies that stick to a sound, ethical plan and deliver most every time. The moral of the story is you have to research any company, in every area, regardless of what their advertising states, whether certified, better business bureau accredited, etc.
The good news is that I am doing what I can to inform the public of this deplorable mess. As stated, not only in the Chimney Sweeping Industry, but across the business board period.
