We have been on the approval list for The National Trust and  Wigan Metro Borough Council for over 30 years and also have a good working relationship with other Councils such as Blackpool Coastal Housing and Lancashire County Council. We also work for builders, hotels and commercial – the list goes on!

We are accredited within the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS), we are also members of Construction line. 


Being a founder member of the National Association of Chimney Sweeps and recommended by the NACS and HETAS, we offer an extremely high quality service to both private and commercial clients, which we believe is second to none.


Chimneys should only be swept by professional sweeps as there are many specific requirements needed for different types of appliances i.e. making sure that enough ventilation is coming into the room before gas fires or solid fuel fires are fitted.

Chimneys must be swept regularly to ensure the following problems do not occur, i.e. spiders webs, birds nests, deterioration of midfeathers, ensuring the gases escape correctly, etc.


Above is a photo of just one of the alarming terminals which was found in one of our customers homes, blocked with SPIDERS WEBS which could have caused fatalities in the home had we not been called out to clean/check the terminal. In this particular case we actually replaced the terminal.


Always ring for a professional sweep and when moving house always ask when the chimneys were last swept.


We do our utmost to accommodate special requirements and we take great care to ensure that we leave the building as clean as we found it.

Smile !!
Smiling is infectious –
you can catch it like the flu
when someone smiled at me today
I started smiling too.
I went around a corner
And someone saw my grin.
Then he smiled and I realised
I’d passed it on to him.

I thought a lot about the smile
And realised it’s true worth.
A single smile like mine
Could travel around the earth.

So if you feel a smile begin,
Don’t leave it undetected.
Let’s start an epidemic quick
And get the world infected !!
