Rachel Brooks, ABR, GRI, Realtor® (Parks Properties) – Nashville, TN
Tommy Nelms with Sweeps and Ladders has been a valuable asset to my clients as they have bought and sold real estate. During the inspection period of a transaction Tommy has given his expert assessment of the condition and safety of fireplaces and chimneys.

Because of Tommy’s experience as both a fire fighter and as a Nationally Certified Chimney Sweep, he can discuss the potential hazardous conditions, available solutions, and maintenance recommendations for fireplaces whether traditional masonry fireplaces, pre-fab, vented or ventless inserts.

The peace of mind he brings has not only been instrumental in preventing future problems but has been helpful to educate everyone on fire safety and prevention in the home.

I highly recommend Tommy Nelms for advice, inspections, cleaning and repairs to chimneys, fireplaces, and dryer vents in your home.

Susan Kelton (Pilkerton Realtors) – Brentwood, TN

Tommy at Sweeps and Ladders has done work for us personally and for several of my clients. Without fail, his thoroughness, integrity, & satisfaction guarantee has excelled! Tommy is a knowledgeable professional who cares about the job he has to perform – whether checking the dryer vent system or the chinking and lining in the chimney. He is always on the lookout for how to make those areas as safe and fireproof as possible. We are highly impressed with his timeliness and clean-up after the job is complete, as well as his follow up. Tommy is the best!

Carlos Cooper – Oxford Property Management, SOS University – Nashville, TN
As a real estate investor and entrepreneur it’s vitally important for me to find vendors that I can trust and never have to babysit. Sweep and Ladders, led by owner Tommy Nelms, is the best and last chimney company I will ever need.

Their integrity is beyond compare (did he tell you he’s a veteran firefighter?) and the level of service and projection completion is fantastic.

Thanks to Tommy and Sweeps and Ladders. I highly recommend them to any potential customers.

David Broadhurst – Franklin, TN

Libby and I were more than pleased with your work on our house. You were responsive and always followed work with a request for review and putting your proposal and the final results together for us. Your consideration and attitude are very hard to find in contractors. On time and budget [or under] are terrific calling cards. Thank you again for your professional effort.

Ellen Taylor – Spring Hill, TN
