I called this morning to schedule a cleaning when my stove started up so badly it wouldn't burn, expecting to see a technician next week some time, but when they found out that my wood stove was my primary source of heat, they said they'd be out in half an hour. My stove is running like new, and the two technicians made zero mess and were so friendly and polite. And to top it all off, they were great with my dogs and two-year-old son.
Prompt, thorough and efficient! Starting with the first email I received (within 30 minutes of my email request being sent) all the way to Chris the technician taking care of inspecting and cleaning - top notch guys!
You run your business like ALL business's should be - Thank you!
