Pozzi Chimney Sweep, Inc. owner Gary Pozzi has seen the devastation of fire firsthand. During his 27 years of work as a firefighter as well as an arson investigator for the Aurora Fire Department, Pozzi witnessed hundreds of Illinois house fires. Many of these fires were preventable and originated in the home’s chimney or fireplace—the direct result of poor chimney maintenance. Pozzi opened this chimney sweep business so that he could continue to play an active role in safeguarding his community and to spread the message that many house fires are preventable with proper chimney maintenance and sweeping. Gary Pozzi has a degree from Waubonsee Community College in Fire Science and is also a Certified Master Chimney Technician. Additionally, our highly-trained chimney sweeps & vent technicians are also certified with the Chimney Safety Institute of America. We pride ourselves on top-quality work, fair rates, and great customer service.
