­­After taking over a 30 year old traditional chimney service company operated by a career firefighter in 2001, Stephen Calnan, himself a retired career firefighter and paramedic, realized ­that rapidly changing technologies, outdated and deteriorating systems and code requirements were revolutio­nizing the industry. Chimney Sweeping Etc. LLC was then established and quickly became a state and local leader in obtaining continuous advanced training and certifications to meet consumer demands and needs. We are a mix of the long tradition of sweeps and the new age of science and technology.

Chimney Sweeping Etc. is an active member of the National Chimney Sweep Guild, The Chimney Safety Institute of America, State and local Chamber of Commerce and we are one of the four original founding members of the Maine Association of Chimney Service Professionals.

We pride ourselves in developing honest long lasting customer relations, some we have had for decades. We stand by our customers and our service by keeping up to date with the ever changing business and industry climate. We utilize the best equipment, products, training and technologies available to provide our clients with the best reliable and high value service and products we can provide and at a reasonable price. We insure great service by viewing our customers as fellow consumers and treat them like we would like to be treated… with honesty and integrity.

Our customer base consists largely of the average home owner, the real estate market, insurance companies, the building trade, masons, investigatory agencies and the HVAC industry. We provide our customers with sweeping, inspections, investigations, consulting, new manufactured chimney construction, chimney lining, related hardware installations, small masonry repair projects, vent and appliance installations and in 2008 we are adding a new department to service cleaning and maintaining dryer vent ducts, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning vent and duct cleaning.
