Milwaukee Chimney Sweeps Serving Our Nation’s Capitol

In 1993, President Bill Clinton spoke with congress about reducing the federal deficit. Jeff Schmittinger, owner of the highly regarded Wisconsin Chimney Technicians, was so moved he placed a call to Washington D.C. volunteering his expert chimney cleaning services. A year and a half of security clearances and Secret Service interviews later, Jeff was given the honor of becoming the lead chimney sweep for the White House.

For the last 18 years, the Wisconsin Chimney Technicians and a few lucky chimney sweeps from around the country have been providing bi-annual chimney sweep services to each of the White House’s 35 chimneys at no cost to taxpayers. When the Wisconsin Chimney Technicians head to The White House, Jeff replaces half his eight person chimney cleaning operation with local Wisconsin chimney sweeps and nominees from the National Chimney Sweeping Guild. The lucky chimney sweep nominees are chosen for their contributions to their communities as well as the chimney cleaning industry.

Milwaukee chimney sweeps clean White House chimneys.

The Wisconsin Chimney Technicians and the National Chimney Sweeping Guild nominees pay their own fare to the White House as well as all their accommodations and are not compensated with any monetary value. All the sweeps who have shared this experience feel the honor of performing this service is more than enough compensation. Being chosen as a chimney cleaner for the White House carries a high level of prestige, comparable to a musician performing at Carnegie Hall.  

Besides performing White House chimney cleaning services with a level of quality and professionalism befitting our nation’s capitol, the Wisconsin Chimney Technicians consistently perform unmatched Waukesha chimney repair and Milwaukee chimney sweep services throughout Southeastern Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Chimney Technicians bestow the same attention to detail and dedication to providing the highest quality service for each and every customer.
