Established in 1978 with a vision to provide friendly, honest, and reliable service. It is this philosophy that has guided Stars Chimney Service for over 35 years. With rising fuel prices and high utility bills, Ron and Karen Starost saw the need for alternative sources of heat from wood fireplaces and stoves. Along with the increased use of fireplaces and wood stoves, came the need for keeping the chimneys cleaned and properly maintained. The company known then as The Chimney Sweep Company was the first in northeast Indiana to offer this service. Later the name was changed to Stars Chimney Service to reflect the Starost name and to encompass more than sweeping chimneys.
