Here is another make/model of stove I’m not familiar with, in fact I’d not seen one of these Clarke stoves before. However, looking on the internet they do seem to manufacture a number of different models; the Regal, the Majestic, the Pembroke, the Eton, the Cottager, the Beaulieu, the Blakeney, the Buckingham, the Wentworth, the Barrel, the Carlton, the Thames, the Junior Victoria and the Chesterford to name a few. Quite an extensive collection of what are mostly traditional or retro stoves in their appearance. The model that I have swept is the Carlton II and is perhaps one of their more contemporary looking stoves out of their entire range. Having said all this the customer has not been impressed with the stoves performance and described its operation as poor and its heat output as inadequate. He is thinking of changing it for a Dean Forge Dartmoor 5 Multi-Fuel Stove.
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.
