Our History

Michael McFarland founded Chimney Doctors in 1997. Originally named Air Pro LLC, Michael had a passion for the chimney sweeping industry. Steve Trumble began working for Michael in 2004. Then, in 2010 Steve purchased the company after the unexpected passing of Michael McFarland. Steve began doing business as Chimney Doctors, and since that day he strives to grow the company into a well-respected and honest company.

The vision for Chimney Doctors is to become the leading chimney, hearth, and educational service provider in North America. Our goal is to provide quality, transparent service, up to date educational resources, and peace of mind to homeowners, contractors, and the real estate industry.
