The Family Business

How We Got Here.

My father, Ray Brosius, started our family chimney sweeping business as B.A. Zoot Sooter in 1982. Being educated at home off and on throughout grade school and high school, we had regular opportunities to learn the art and science of chimney sweeping as well as the importance of excellence in customer service.

While pursuing higher education in Pennsylvania, I had the opportunity to work with a chimney professional to pay for college and graduate school.

It could be said that I Always Swept through school.

    Ashes To Success

    A Return To Florida.


    Always A Sweep experienced and certified team

    Upon returning to Florida, I joined my father and brother for a few years while they worked together as Ashes and Embers Chimney Service. After both moved on, leaving a gap in the chimney professional world, my wife and I decided to go back to sweep in 2017. Since both businesses had been closed, it seemed opportune to borrow a line from one of the old bumper stickers on my Dad’s truck- not the one that read “Don’t make an ash of yourself, have your chimney cleaned by a professional” but the sticker that reminded people that they could “call us day or night, we are Always A Sweep.”

    Our family has been serving Marion and Surrounding counties for over 35 years, and we look forward to serving you.

    Super Fast Response


    Super fast response, came out within a couple hours of my initial call. The tech was very professional, efficient, and clean. They even provided me with before and after photos of inside the dryer vent. Highly recommend!

    These Folks Are Exceptional


    These folks are exceptional, they came to repair our gas fireplace when others wouldn't. Mike consulted the mfr, inspected the vent pipes then repaired, cleaned and adjusted the burner, showed and explained it all, I highly recommend them.
