I recently swept this rather attractive Contemporary Stove at an address in Wimbish Green. The stove was positioned in a very contemporary setting so went very well with the large open space room. Unusually and rather trickily, I had to undo two bolts in order to drop the baffle pales in order to access the flue. Fortunately, both bolts undid rather easily and I was able to sweep the flue without any issues. The only material that I was able to extract from the chimney was a quantity of very fine soot, which told me that both stove and chimney were working very efficiently together and burning as much of the fuel as possible. I’m not sure what make or model of stove it actually is, there were no names on the casting and a search of the internet was unhelpful; if anyone out there can enlighten me I would be grateful for the information.
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.
