Since Chief Sweep’s Chimney Service inception over twenty seven years ago, we have become a leader in our industry, serving over 2,000 customers in the Santa Barbara County. We believe in treating the customer as if they’re one of the family, which is why we have repeat customers year after year. Being a family owned business allows us to treat our customers with care, and showing every customer how important they are to us. The company consists of Richard Lauritson as Founder, Cathy Lauritson as Co- Founder, Ashley Bramsen as Owner, Scott Bramsen as our certified technician, and Cody Lauritson as our Intern. We would like to introduce Scott Bramsen (Ashley's husband) as our newest certified chimney technician, with six years of chimney and fireplace experience. Scott has worked for the fire service for five years and is currently in pursuit of his associate’s degree in fire technology. Another key to our success is Richard’s qualifications. He has worked for the fire department for twenty-six years. Richard graduated in 1980 with an automotive technology certification and in 2004 graduated with a fire technology certification. Richard has taken continuing education courses in fire safety throughout his career as well as obtaining other certifications. Richard is also a licensed general contractor as well as a state certified fire investigator. Ashley is a certified chimney technician, with fourteen years of chimney and fireplace experience. Ashley is currently in pursuit of her associate’s degree in business and accounting. Richard has personally mentored Ashley, Scott and Cody to be the finest chimney technicians with customer care excellence. Chief Sweep is a family owned business and we are proud of our excellence in customer service and our devotion and commitment to our customers.
