“Dear PoP,

I’m wondering if any of your readers have recommendations on a chimney sweep. We’ve never used ours, and I don’t know whether it’s been kept up or not (renting, and the landlord didn’t have it checked when she bought the house a few years ago). So I need someone to tell us if it’s in okay shape, but we’d rather not spend a ton of money — we’re not going to pay to have it fixed if that’s what needs to happen.”

Crap, I used somebody good a couple of years ago but have no idea who it was. Dang. By the by, how often should one have their chimney swept? Any good recs?
