Born in Hallstatt, Austria…
Like hard work. His first classroom was his parent’s bakery, where he learned the secret to baking the perfect pastry. Perhaps Gustav would still be living in his little hometown, baking pastries for his friends and neighbors, had it not been for that fateful day, Christmas Eve, when the bakery’s chimney clogged – setting fire to the shop, and ruining all of his baked goods. Gustav’s customers were angry to hear that they would not be having Gustav’s famous pastries for Christmas, and they all demanded their money back. Gustav’s parents were forced to shut down their beloved business, and go into an early retirement. It was on this day that Gustav swore to learn the art of chimney sweeping, in hopes that he could save others from such a horrible disaster. After sailing to America to learn from the very best chimney sweeps around, Gustav started his own business and set forth to help those who were unaware of the dangers that lurked just up their chimneys.
Today Gustav’s tradition is carried on by the faithful, the few and the brave. High buildings, dirty soot, blowing snow, and hot chimneys are all in a days work for the chimney sweep of today.
This is the Midtown Chimney Sweeps Gustav.
