Business Spotlight: Dirty Bristles Chimney Sweep, Inc.

A chimney can be one of the most used and popular features of a Maine home, but often overlooked when it comes to safety and regular maintenance. That’s where Dirty Bristles Chimney Sweeps can share their expertise giving homeowners peace of mind and preventing dangerous fires.

of debris and burning flawlessly.
Based in Bridgton, Dirty Bristles services all locations in the Lakes Region of Maine and surrounding areas and has been in business for more than a decade. A family operated business, company employees believe that chimney inspections are just as important as chimney cleanings and can help ensure that chimneys are in good condition and ready to use.

Along with sweeping chimneys and offering chimney safety inspections, the Dirty Bristles team installs and properly maintains all brands of gas, wood or pellet stoves and fireplaces.

“We install Class A chimney systems and stainless-steel liner systems,” said Deb St. Cyr of Dirty Bristles Chimney Sweep, Inc. “We also install chimney caps and top dampers.”

Other services available include removal of clogs or blockages, diagnostic testing to resolve problems, installation of replacement parts, real estate inspections of chimneys and stoves, camera inspections, and wood, gas, or pellet stove cleanings.

Working efficiently and cleaning up thoroughly afterward, Dirty Bristles provides exceptional customer service, fair and affordable pricing and convenient scheduling for appointments.

“We always answer the phone and return all calls,” St. Cyr said. “Everything we do is for the benefit of our customers. Our mission is to help people keep their homes safer.”

Technicians Jeff St. Cyr and Ethan St. Cyr bring with them over 15 years of certified chimney experience. Having been trained through the Chimney Safety Institute of America, Certified Chimney Professionals, National Fire Institute, and a wide variety of factory specific trainings for hearth specialty items, gives them the opportunity to offer the best range of services to the homeowner.

“Jeff will explain each step to take should your chimney require further work,” St. Cyr said. “We are serious about your safety. We care about homeowner's safety. We see a lot of homes that need services, and they go ignored for years. If you are building a fire inside your home, please take the time to service those areas properly. We have really noticed a deficit here in Maine in proper chimney inspections/services with new homes being bought and sold. We continue to work building relationships with local realtors in the area getting these things accomplished before sales are finished instead of going in after a sale and sharing bad news with a new homeowner. Maine recognizes the national NFPA 211 code, which states that a Level II inspection of all chimneys be a part of every real estate transfer." It is listed on the purchase and sale list of inspections to have, and listed on the home inspection report, however many are overlooked and not done."

According to St. Cyr, the quality of services provided by Dirty Bristles speak for themselves.

“We will never leave your home with debris or creosote,” she said. “We use everything available in this field to properly clean and service your stoves and chimneys. Our reviews on our website and through square have been really great feedback.”

A sampling of those reviews include:

“We just had our first visit from DB yesterday and wanted you to know how very, very pleased we were with your service. Your crew was on time, courteous, considerate, efficient, professional and thorough. We couldn’t have asked for more. You guys are the best!” Bonnie

“Thanks for servicing my wood stove last Friday. The service was just what I wanted, the technicians explained everything and provided me the peace of mind knowing the stove is ready to face the upcoming winter. I look forward to doing business with you in the future, it’s nice to know we have honest and a reliable company available.” Charlie
