Hello my name is Clay Lamb. I have owned and operated American Chimney since 1981. I first want to thank you for visiting our site. I trust we will provide you with enough information to solve your chimney and fireplace needs.
I got into this business because I was looking for a way to support my wife and three small children. To save money on fuel cost after buying a wood stove insert in the early 80′s I decide that I would start a part time chimney cleaning service. That was over 30 years and more than 80,000 service calls ago.
With the help and leadership on my son David we now operate 8 service trucks. David Lamb has been in this business for 16 years and is our operations manager in charge of the crews. We primarily provide chimney sweep services in Cincinnati, OH and northern Kentucky.
This site is meant to be an informational source only. Making repairs to your fireplace or chimney and climbing up on roof tops is best left to professionals. We hope that you will utilize these articles and videos to become better informed about the subject matter. To find a qualified sweep near you, we recommend searching on our Sweep Finder locator or going to www.ncsg.org to find a professional chimney sweep in your area.
