At Leonard & Sons, we’ve been serving the Chicagoland area since 1966. We believe that being in business this long is directly related to our relationships with our customers. Our longevity in the chimney sweeping business has given us the opportunity to learn about all that Northwest Chicagoland area and the people that live here and we want to show you why each town in our service area is so close to our hearts.
