Here is a really nice photo of a family’s pet dogs enshrined in the thatch on the roof of their house. What a really nice idea I thought and a lovely tribute to their pets. I don’t know if you can recognize the breed of dogs from the photo, but they are a Boarder Terrier, Jack Russell and a West Highland Terrier. The house its self is tucked away and not that easy to find, so if you are casually driving through Ashdon and don’t know where it is, you will probably miss it all together. A shame, but I hope the photo will suffice? The customer has two wood-burning stoves in the property that require sweeping twice a year, a large Villager Stove and a large ‘Witches Hat’ style Woodwarm wood-burning 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.
