The chimney has been a part of family life since the early Romans first realized that it was better to live in a nice, fire-warmed home than
in a chilly one. They needed a way to funnel off the smoke the fires caused. Centuries later, in medieval times, fireplaces were invented to heat
individual rooms and provide a safe place for indoor cooking. Folks soon learned that fireplaces and their chimneys needed a cleaning once in a
while. A house full of soot and fumes isn't healthy. And so, chimney sweeping developed into a necessary profession. And a good one.
People liked having the chimney sweep pay a visit. He brought clean, fresh air back to the home. He became a sign of good health and prosperity. Pickwick & Poppins is a familiar name in the field of air cleaning throughout the Delaware Valley. The firm has been in existence for 30 years, and has grown from a small chimney cleaning operation to a company which provides a variety of services such as duct and chimney cleaning, soot removal, chimney relining, chimney repairs and dryer vent cleaning.
