Santa Knows Which Cities Have the Cleanest Chimneys This Christmas, According to

New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Philadelphia Top List (December 23, 2011)

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/23/11 -- It's Christmas weekend and while many are wrapping gifts or doing last-minute shopping drills, here at we were asked by Santa Claus to give him some smack on which cities have the cleanest chimneys. Hey look, we agree with Santa (or as we know him, 'Claus' or just Kris), anything to avoid unnecessary carcinogens, second-hand ash, black dust -- we're behind that. Anyway, Santa comes to for the chimney stats, he's in a rush, he's looking at a huge busy season (also, a whopping dry-cleaning bill), but he also knows because we get hundreds of thousands of people online asking us to match them with local vendors like plumbers, roofers, and -- you guessed it -- chimney cleaners, we also know which cities have the cleanest chimneys (or at least, trying their hardest). Santa said we could share some of it so here it is based on thousands of requests we received over the past 90-days, nationwide:

  • Not surprisingly New York and Chicago, and surprisingly, Atlanta had the most chimney cleaning requests

  • A smaller city in a cold climate, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Los Angeles rounded out the top 5

  • San Francisco, San Diego, along with Seattle-Tacoma, Philadelphia and Birmingham rounded out the top ten

  • On a special note, Pittsburgh really got excited about Santa comin' to town, with a 500% increase in chimney cleaning requests during October/November (compared to New York which saw a 200% increase)
