About Owner Gary Pozzi

Gary and Laura Pozzi opened Pozzi Chimney Sweep, Inc., in 2011. Two years prior Gary had retired from his job of 27 years as a firefighter with the Aurora Fire Department. At the time, he had been named the Fire Marshal for Aurora, which is the second largest city in Illinois. Over the course of his career, Gary had also worked as a chimney sweep for a number of years. During the ’90s, the Pozzis even ran their own chimney sweep company, which also specialized in masonry restoration.

After retiring from the fire department Gary decided that he was not yet done protecting Illinois citizens from fire and that he wanted to re-open his chimney sweep business. Pozzi Chimney Sweep is a reflection of Gary’s passion for fire prevention. In his work as both a firefighter and a chimney inspector, Gary Pozzi witnessed the devastation caused by so many blazing house fires, and he wants to make sure that your chimney and dryer vent are safe so that you and your family will never have to know what a house fire is like. He is also certified as a dryer exhaust technician.

My fireplace smelled strange, and because I knew I hadn’t had it cleaned in forever, I looked for a service online and Gary’s came up. He came out and inspected the firebox and said that I needed a new chase cover on the chimney. He ordered me a stainless steel one that he had fabricated somewhere and brought it out later and installed it and did a real nice job. He called me a number of times and kept me informed about what he was doing … I hired the right guy.
