43 years of Quality Chimney Care!

August West Chimney has been cleaning and maintaining chimneys since 1973, when our founder (Tom Risch) developed the tools and methods that have since been internationally adopted by the industry and are considered today to be standard chimney cleaning techniques. We are an owner operated company, run by the Burns family (Dave Burns Sr. and now also Dave Burns Jr.) since 1982 - with enormous amounts of help during the past 15 years from Sondra Roberts, Will Rodriguez, and Steve Ash. A company is only as good as its people. We are very proud of our little company...
