Grogg’s Home Services acquires Keeling Chimney Service
Grogg’s Home Services is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Keeling Chimney Service – a local, family-owned partnership that has been servicing the Mid-Ohio Valley area for eight years. This acquisition took place in November 2018 and goes into effect immediately.
Keeling Chimney specializes in the maintenance and restoration of chimneys and fireplaces in residential and industrial buildings. Your chimney is an important ventilation system that allows smoke, toxins and dangerous fumes to escape the home.
The purchase of a chimney cleaning company aligns with Grogg’s Home Services’ goal of providing top-notch customer service for your entire home. With more than 25,000 chimney fires per year occurring in the United States causing over 125 million dollars in damage, chimney cleaning should not be overlooked. Grogg’s is proud to begin offering this service to improve the overall safety and air quality of our customers’ homes.
“Partnering with Keeling Chimney Service just made sense for us,” said Tim Hanlon, co-owner of Grogg’s Home Services. “We were already committed to ensuring our customers’ homes are heated safely and efficiently, so chimney safety is just a good fit. The bottom line is if you have a safe heat source and water heater, a clean dryer vent and a well-maintained and inspected chimney, you will drastically reduce the chance of suffering a life changing house fire. We can now help our customers with all those services. Plus, we also have the capability to inspect and repair home wiring, and we all know that electrical fires are another leading cause of structure fires.”
Additionally, Grogg’s is happy to announce that Jim Keeling, owner and operator of Keeling Chimney Service, will be joining our team. Aside from Keeling Chimney, Jim has served the area proudly as a Parkersburg fire fighter. He states, “Having been a firefighter for the last 18 years, I’ve seen numerous chimney and dryer-related fires, so I know first-hand the devastating outcome of neglecting your chimneys, flues, fireplaces and vents.”
Grogg’s Home Services is a local, family-owned and operated business, specializing in HVAC services, electrical, plumbing, windows, and more. Having been in business for 49 years, Grogg’s is now one of the largest and most successful HVAC companies in the state. However, faithful to their humble beginnings, they guarantee the same unmatched customer care that they have always provided their customers.
