Our Early Days
Owner Dale Kelley decided to attend Black Magic Chimney Sweep School in Stowe, Vermont as a result of an advertisement he came across in Mother Earth News magazine. Finishing school, he became Maryland’s first certified chimney sweep, and started sweeping chimneys on the weekend with his wife, Rona. They remained a team until they started a family at which point Rona had to give up sweeping.
As Dale and Rona’s family grew, so did their small business. Over time, Dale began hiring other sweeps to accommodate their growth. Today, Magic Broom is one of the most highly regarded chimney sweeping businesses in Southern Maryland and remains in the family as Magic Broom is now mostly managed by Dale and Rona’s son, Josh.
