Management Team

  • Midtownsweeps.com CEO Byron Schramm, best chimney franchise in US

    Byron Schramm - Entrepreneur

    Midtown Chimney Sweeps Franchising traces its history to Byron Schramm and a family story in Lancaster, CA. From a farming and construction-oriented family that has lived in the Antelope Valley, CA, for five generations, Byron Schramm holds a bachelors degree from The Master's College in Santa Clarita, CA in biology and mathematics. An entrepreneur at heart, he started three businesses before the age of 18 and filed for a provisional US Patent on one invention at the age of 21. He currently holds another provisional utility patent on a smart phone application for the hearth industry, a solo license in sailplane aircraft and two classifications of CA and CO contractor licenses. A world traveler since his youth, Byron has spent considerable time visiting Alaska, Syria, Denmark, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, and has visited Switzerland twice- on a budget with a backpack. But not to worry Byron has feet of clay and has failed in several ways too. Take the downturn in the US economy in 2007 for example. In April 2007, Byron shifted his attention from the real estate and construction market toward the hearth industry and incorporated the name Midtown Sweeps from a second generation hearth business before him. The new business concept sprang to life with the integration of technology, systems, uniforms, and other best practices. Due to his love of travel, people, and business, Byron has learned that the hearth industry is ripe and ready to receive quality customer service. Knowing that the Midtown Sweeps Dealer Service Network is now a successful reality, coupled with the fact that local Dealers often suffer unpleasant turnover rates, means a blue-ocean strategy has been uncovered in a new market. Byron is a key member of the management team.

    Had them come to do a chimney sweep and dryer vent clean for a condo I just purchased. They were efficient and amazingly helpful, performing the chimney sweep efficiently and going way above and beyond on the dryer vent clean! They found a bird's nest that had been lodged in the dryer vents and was a possible fire hazard - and took care of it and cleaned everything perfectly. I will definitely use them again for future annual chimney sweeps and would highly recommend the to anyone around! Thank you so much!

    Tikar was really professional, punctual and got straight to work. He answered all of my questions and gave me some helpful info about the wood burning stove since I've never used one before. Thank you, Tikar!

    I've used these guys twice and had an excellent experience both time. Scheduling is easy and communication with the company is very professional. They were very conscientious about putting down drop cloths and keeping everything clean. And they went way above and beyond providing excellent service. I had bought a remote for our propane fireplace a year before and never installed it for myself. When Midtown installed it and it didn't work right away, they personally took it back the place from whom I'd made the purchase to troubleshoot before returning to complete the installation. And spent a ton of extra time on the return trip because they discovered a gasket on that fireplace needed to be replaced and they did it right then and there. I can't say enough good things about these guys!

    The Midtown Chimney Sweep's representative that came to my home was very professional, knowledgable, and helpful! He answered all the questions I had and helped me fix a gas fireplace I had been having problems with for years! Best experience I've had with a chimney sweep service in years! I will be using this company again!

    Great customer service and really helpful!!

    My experience with Midtown Sweeps was primarily through their employee, Jason Allen, who was polite, efficient and knowledgeable. The top of one of my fireplace chimneys had blown off during a major windstorm which is common in Evergreen. I also had a problem with a woodpecker getting in the chimney and wood-pecking on it at all times of the day and night. Jason efficiently climbed on the roof and replaced the chimney top and we had a fun discussion about woodpeckers. If Jason represents Midtown Sweeps as a typical employee, then I recommend the company at a high level and would recommend the company to anyone who needs chimney support.

    Glen was terrific. He got here on time, was curtious and cleaned up after himself both inside and out. Price was fair. I'd recommend Midtown without hesitation.
