Chimney Sweep University

Want to be a chimney sweep?

Wondering where to apply or go to school to get the physical training that you need to run a small, medium or large chimney sweeping operation?
Midtown Chimney Sweeps has over 3 decades of experience and is an international leader in chimney sweep education. A for-profit business that educates people with no previous experience in chimney cleaning, chimney inspection and chimney repair and turns them into top notch service and repair technicians in weeks.

We love to train. We love to teach, and education is not a destination but a journey for our our founder Byron Schramm and for all the training staff here at Midtown Chimney Sweeps Franchising home office.

Our initial training is two weeks long and includes dozens of chimney sweeping jobs, dryer vent jobs, gas fireplace diagnosis and repair and light maintenance and repair of chimneys and vents.

Some of the Midtown training topics covered are:

  • Ladder set up and securing to ground and house
  • Harness safety on the roof
  • Selection, use and care of the most commonly used fireplace cleaning  tools and equipment
  • Selection, use and care of commonly used chimney inspection tools including live scan video cameras
  • Chimney and fireplace inspection using the NFPA 211
    • hearth and connector pipe clearances
    • appliance clearances
    • interior flue inspection process
    • cap, crown and chase inspection
    • attic clearances and inspection
    • smoke chamber and firebox inspection
  • Proper documentation of your inspection
  • Dryer vent tool selection, use, and care

    • cleaning horizontal dryer vents
    • codes and clearances
  • Gas fireplace annual service
  • Gas fireplace diagnosis and repair
    • thermocouple diagnosis
    • thermopile diagnosis
    • pilot assembly function
    • monometer readings of gas pressure
  • Set fair pricing, and our suggested start up list
  • Dress for success- use our uniforms and online print store
  • Market to the right demographic- use our proven and changing methods
  • Grow an online digital footprint in your area- follow our system
  • Correctly do paperwork and track invoices and quotes
  • Only pay for marketing that works- use our source tracker
  • Go deep in your community not wide- operate within a known territory

All three elements are needed to train a successful small business person in 21st Century North America:

  • the Technician
  • the Manager
  • the Entrepreneur

Why pay for a chimney sweep education and bother going through a certification process like that of Midtown Chimney Sweeps? In the words of Michael Gerber, because not everyone is a entrepreneur. Usually technicians start businesses. But what is needed is more than a technician to operate a safe and enduring business. You need to develop your Manager side, and your Entrepreneur side. We all have these three key components to a successful business, but when you try to start a small business in North America today, either in Canada or the United States of America, you will see the layers of bureaucracy that exist.

So come to a chimney sweep university that will prepare you to do your best in a new occupation. Come to the University that knows fireplaces, chimneys and vents!

    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!!

  • Customer Testimonials

    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.
