Excellent review by Rita Holt

My request for a chimney inspection as contingency for buying a house was accepted and delivered the very same day. Luckily, a crew was already to be in my town! Jeff Peterson was most obliging and kind in his response to my immediate need. An expensive problem found during the house inspection turned out to be non-existent! What a happy surprise! I will keep them in mind when I need my next sweep.

Excellent review by Dwight Madison

On a Saturday afternoon my fireplace caught fire in the flue. After I put the fire out with an extinguisher. I called Potomac Services and asked if they could come out and inspect for damages. They arrived quickly and inspected and gave me a fair evaluation. Knowing we had to replace our outdated fireplace we relied on their expertise to acquire and install a new gas fireplace.They did so quickly and efficiently. All of their employees were respectful and hard working. I would like to personally thank: The owner Jeff Peterson, Technician Casey Brown, and his assistant Riley along with Office Manager Brian. They brought warmth and safety to my house. Thank You!

This time Potomac Services came out to repair the masonry work on my 75 year old chimney. They did an amazing job as always. I can't say enough good things about Potomac Services. Last year they cleaned my ducts and dryer vent and repaired the inside of both of my chimneys. Highest recommendation possible. You will not be disappointed!

Excellent review by Troy Lowery, via Google

Absolutely AWESOME Service!They are PROFESSIONAL, POLITE, KNOWLEDGEABLE, and CERTIFIED EXPERTS! The entire staff is absolutely WONDERFUL! Background on my situation: We are selling our house. During the home inspection, rust and small holes were found inside the chimney, which deemed it unsafe for use. In a panic, we contacted a chimney vendor (a quick recommendation by a realtor), who said that it would be a total demo and rebuild for approx. $10,500. Well, in the middle of trying to sell our house, that’s not very good news. Not a lot of time and not enough money to fix this unforeseen issue. So, we desperately needed a second opinion. I called Potomac Services, who sent out a crew on the SAME DAY to actually put a video camera down the chimney to properly diagnose the problem and identi...

Air Duct Cleaning Scams & How to Avoid Them

Recently WIJL News in DC ran a story on air duct cleaning scams. It's sad there are companies out there giving our industry a bad reputation. Know this... if you see a deal that says you can get your air duct cleaned for $89, run! According to the National Air Duct Cleaning Association, the average cost for air duct cleaning for a single family home will run between $400-$1000, depending on your home.

Rest assured, we are the good guy, offering upfront, fair pricing for quality service.

Ducts cleaning for $49 or $69 a for a whole house cleaning, no way! Read the fine print and start asking questions. Check this article to help from being scammed.

Why Clean Your Air Ducts?

On average, people spend about 90% of their time indoors. Indoor air contains 3-5 times more contaminants than outdoor air. If your air system is dirty, you are breathing unhealthy air that can make you and your loved ones sick.

Why Clean Your Air Ducts? Imagine that your heating and cooling air system is the lungs of your home. It breathes air in and out. The air flows through the entire air system and living space – recirculating as many as 5-7 times per day. Whether its from normal everyday activity or a home renova...

Potomac Services is a full service chimney sweep company providing service in the Northern Virginia, Maryland and DC Metro area. We strive to provide exceptional service to our customers. In order to achieve this, we are committed to providing our technicians with the best training, experience, and equipment to perform our work. As a part of this, we are huge advocates of the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) educational/certification programs. Recently, we hosted a local CSIA Successful Chimney Sweep and Certified Dryer Vent class and exam in Herndon Virginia. As the result, we are proud to say that seven individuals successfully passed the SCS and CDET exam - five from Potomac Services, one from Winston Chimney, and one from Clean Sweep. Richard Rua's instruction was instrumental to the success of this class. He did an amazing job educating seasoned chimney sweeps, as well those who have only recently joined the profession. This truly demonstrates excellent team work between the CSIA organization, Richard, Potomac Services and the newly certified CSIA SCS and CDET certified chimney sweeps. Thanks and congratulations to all.
