Thank you so much for the clean and professional service. We couldn’t even tell that you had been to our home when we got home except for the spotless fireplaceI also appreciate that you were able to identify and replace the heat shield in my firebox

It would be great if more companies provided your level of service and expertise

I will continue to refer you to anyone in need of fireplace and chimney expertise or cleaning – Jeff, Cedar Falls

We have had Ashes Away clean our wood-burning system for many years, and feel fortunate to have had the ongoing maintenance.

Mr. Bergman has provided us with a service which is punctual, efficient, reliable, and of high value.

As a previous insurance agent, and after many years of working as a real estate appraiser, I am aware of the importance of fire prevention. In light of this, we rest assured knowing that the Bergmans are people of integrity and will continue to provide us a valuable service while keeping us safe with advice, vital repairs, and alterations as we need them.

I highly recommend Ashes Away Chimney Sweep. – Richard, Hazelton

Greg has been sweeping our chimney for a number of years. I would highly recommend him. He does a great job from top to bottom. He examines the fireplace inside and outside for damage or needed repairs. He sets up an appointment and is very punctual. When he leaves everything is clean and you would never have known he had been there. – Mike, Parkersburg
We have been a customer of Ashes Away for over twenty years. Kind of says it all, if you ask us. – Larry and Gloria, Cedar Falls
We have had them for several years clean the chimney and fireplace. They are very thorough and very friendly. They check everything inside and outside the house. They are so careful that I believe my living room is cleaner when they leave. – Anna, Waterloo

We offer our hearty recommendation for Ashes Away Chimney Sweep!They have been doing our chimney inspections, cleaning and stove insert repair annually since 1990. We have a kitchen wood stove and a living room fireplace insert that provide about 90% of our heating with wood. So it is very critical to us they work flawlessly through our Iowa heating season.

Greg Bergman has kept our chimneys clear and clean. He has repaired stove firebrick as needed but most importantly the Bergmans have kept us safe for more than 25 years.

The value of the service Ashes Away Chimney Sweep provides us and our family is absolutely the best to be found. – Wally and Noreen, Cedar Falls
