Meet The Chim-Cheroo Team

Don Rhine: Owner/Founder/Sweep

Don started Chim-Cheroo in 1988 after deciding that he wanted more for himself and his family than working in a local factory could provide. Educated at Ohio State University, Don relied on knowledge and hard work to get Chim-Cheroo off the ground and running. His business venture soon took off and began to flourish, which allowed him to begin to clean chimneys full-time.

Tom & Don Rhine

Today, over 29 years later, Chim-Cheroo is still flourishing, still growing, and still looking forward to the future. Don has been married to his wife Bonnie for 33 years and has three sons. Don has been a Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA)-certified sweep for over 25 years and is a member of the National Chimney Sweeping Guild (NCSG).

Tom Rhine: Owner/Mason/Sweep

Tom, Don’s son, is part owner of Chim-Cheroo and a CSIA-certified sweep. He has over 10 years of industry experience and has expanded Chim-Cheroo’s services to include chimney restoration and chimney rebuilds. Tom is an expert mason and the most trusted employee that our master sweep has ever trained. He is also a member of the Tri-Community Volunteer Fire Department in Greenwich and is always looking for ways to serve others.
