1st Choice Residential

The DFW leaders in gas Fireplace and BBQ Cleaning services.

A number of years ago, an idea came to me as I was sitting in a Business Network International Meeting at Timmeron Country Club in Southlake, Texas. I was looking out the window at all the gorgeous homes surrounding the golf course when, out of nowhere, the CHIMNEYS just POPPED out at me and I noticed them on all the roofs.  The thought came to me, “Someone has to clean those chimneys!”  I believe it was the Lord Jesus Christ speaking directly to my heart.  I immediately started the company out of blind obedience, from my garage, and the rest is history!  ~Jeff Baldwin

After First Choice Chimney came Texas Grill Masters, the premier BBQ Grill cleaning and repair company based out of the same area. After cultivating these businesses and building a great clientele, Jeff came up with the idea of First Choice Residential, an all-encompassing one-stop-shop for any homeowner and their fireplace repair & cleaning needs for the household. From bbq grill services to dryer vent services, we have you covered, and all under one roof.

First Choice Residential is a proud, veteran-owned local business, led by Jeff Baldwin who served 7 years in the Navy Seabees.
