Yes, it is that busy time of year again; I have been working six full days a week now since the beginning of August. The seasons have Cleary turned from Summer into autumn, the leaves are turn brown and gold dropping from the trees and we have already had the first autumn gales. It won’t be long now before winter and the burning season, so everyone is now thinking about getting their stoves and open fires ready. So I thought it would be a good idea to have a little bit of summer and to look at this interesting picture of three thatched hares; two boxing and one watching. Or is that spectator a rabbit. Or as the old baldness/wig joke goes, ‘from a distance they all look like hares (hairs)!
My name is Paddy McKeown, I am a retired police officer (Detective Sergeant – Metropolitan Police), turned chimney sweep. I have completed training with ‘The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps’, and Rod Tech UK (Power Sweeping).
I have built up a wealth of practical knowledge and experience, and have invested in a range of sweeping equipment including CCTV equipment to examine and record the interior condition of flues/chimneys and so can diagnose and advise on all sorts of chimney problems and carry out minor repairs if necessary.
I sweep cleanly and efficiently all open fire places, as well as wood-burning stoves, Aga’s, Rayburn’s Alpha’s, Parkray’s, Baxi’s, inglenooks and biomass boilers.
Put simply, I offer an inclusive sweeping package that will guarantee your safety whilst you get the best out of your appliance or open fire.
