When The Original Chimney Sweep first opened in 1976, founder Dennis Arseneau could be found gracing rooftops and sweeping away soot while dressed to the nines in a top hat and tails. Today, he's
retired the Dick Van Dyke number and lets his service record speak for itself. Over the course of 30 years, the Arseneau family has reaped more than 56,000 loyal customers across southern Massachusetts and Rhode Island thanks to Dennis's detail-oriented approach to service, which includes offering free estimates and keeping homes free of sootprints. Beyond inspecting flues of all shapes and sizes, his team can inspect and clean dryer vents, oil- and gas-burning appliances, and carbon monoxide detectors, and even offers a selection of fireplace accessories, such as screens, grates, and kindling made from handwritten love letters.
