The Clean Sweep AA Crew - Crofton MD

About the Founder

Chuck Roydhouse leads our company with a prime example of what to look for when looking for a chimney sweep. Not only has he lived in Anne Arundel County his whole life, he is a retired county firefighter. With a lifelong commitment to keeping people safe, he has gone through all the hoops to acquire as much certification as possible, making him an expert on all things related to chimney and fire safety. He has an incredible list of qualifications, starting with a degree in Fire Science from Shepherd University. He is a graduate of the National Chimney Sweep Training School. He is a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) Certified Chimney Technician, with advanced certification in Chimney Diagnosis and Documentation, Inspection and Report Writing, Chimney Physics, and Masonry Repair for Chimney Professionals. He is also a Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician.

About our technicians

With a CEO as educated as ours, we have to keep up! We are all required to be CSIA Certified Chimney Technicians and Dryer Exhaust Technicians , which requires renewal and retesting every three years on chimney and dryer systems and safety. Some chimney companies in Maryland don’t make it a priority to employ only CSIA Certified Chimney Technicians, but that is all your going to get with us! We also love continuing our education on Chimney Physics, Masonry, and Inspection and Report Writing. We even have our own training center where specialists train us so that we may better inform our clients.

We want to help, and we want to not only figure out the problem that you might be having with your chimney or dryer system, but also discuss solutions that work best for you. Contact us today to schedule your chimney sweep and inspection. We make your chimney healthy!
