SOME OF MY CUSTOMERS TESTIMONIALS

Simon Dale

"“Ian is a lovely guy who is reliable, friendly, courteous, and extremely knowledgable. He has always been willing to spend time explaining things – including, when he really isn’t obliged to, looking at the wood burner itself (a beast of a multi-fuel burner which fires the central heating for the whole house) and trying to get at the root of the problem (burning not burning well, kicking out smoke, efficiency), taking time to explain about the best methods of burning, mutli-fuels, different log types. He’s a star, knows his stuff, and you can rely on him. Very highly recommended.”"

Peter Page

“Without doubt the most reliable and professional chimney sweep I have encountered. He is prompt and can be relied upon to do a thorough and detailed job. Nothing is too much trouble and he is also very good company. Cannot speak too highly of him.”

Alistair Campbell

“We have used Ian for a number of years. He always turns up on time and does a brilliant job. He not only sweeps my chimney but also checks everything out to make sure my wood burning stove is good for another year. He also advised me on CO2 alarms, advise which I have now taken. And he leaves the place clean and tidy, you’d never know he had been! Recommended.”

Kirsty Bushrod

“Ian is a great guy providing a brilliant service. He really knows how to sweep my difficult rayburn chimney. He’s prompt and efficient. Would highly recommend him.”

Richard Oliver

“Ian has been servicing our chimneys for the past 4 years. During that time we have been very impressed with his professionalism. Any problems have been pointed out to us and dealt with as quickly as possible. We feel he has provided us with service over and beyond that which one might normally expect. Good luck for the future.”

Rach Baker

“Ian has been servicing our chimney for the past few years and does a fantastic job. Very tidy in his work, leaving us not only with a clean and safe chimney but a log burner that looks as good as new. Ian has always provided a friendly and reliable service and it’s a pleasure to know him.”

Kathrine Butler

“Ian first called by appointment a year ago to advise as to our wood burner. He could have easily ‘sold’ us a new stove but told us it was a good one and only needed servicing. We were impressed with the work he did-he is meticulous , and very pleasantly surprised as to the account . Having established trust and discovered Ian had been an engineer of some years standing we asked him about other issues related to the efficiency, given the stove was surrounded by a largo brick canopy He went away, thought about the problem of heat dispersal and advised the removal of the canopy , which the local builder then undertook .. Ian returned to put in place a chimney of his design The result is we have found a stove that is totally different in that it heats the room and most of the house . we have found a chimney sweep par excellence . 100% recommended”

Nigel Southwood

“We own a 400+ year old thatched cottage so it is essential that our chimneys are swept on a regular basis by a qualified chimney sweep and that the work is certified. Ian does an excellent, professional job and is very clean and tidy – you really would not know that he had been. All that and he is a thoroughly nice chap to boot.”

Steven Reeves

“We have a farmhouse and two holiday cottages with 5 different chimneys to service in total. Ian could not have been more professional, polite and helpful. He initially assessed the situation of each then went to great lengths to protect all flooring / furniture / equipment prior to commencing any work. Each chimney and appliance was cleaned, serviced, tweaked and sorted in turn. There were what I would consider extra little service requirements here and there which Ian made light of and fixed along the way. Nothing was too much trouble ! It is certainly a fact of life that there are some people who you invite into your home to undertake a job and they “gel” with you … my wife and I felt totally happy to have Ian in our space and would have no hesitation recommending him and his expertise to anyone. We even look forward to his return !! Thanks Ian .. we feel lucky to have found you !!”

Andrew Bray

“Ian has been cleaning our two chimneys for 4 years and I would highly recommend him. He does an excellent, professional job and is a very pleasant person to have come into your house. He issues a certificate to confirm that your chimney has been swept professionally which is good for insurance purposes. Ian is very practical and knowledgeable and I think could turn his hand to most jobs.”

Wendy

“Ian, swept our chimney last summer, he gave a very good service right from us contacting him and booking a suitable day and time. he did a very thorough job and made no mess, he left everything clean and tidy. I would recommend Ian.”
