Welcome to the website of Chimney Sweep North Devon
On this page we shall be posting important messages for you, so check it regularly.
GENERAL THOUGHTS FOR YOU . . .
It's THAT time of year again!
Once again we remind you that if birds are actively nesting, we will not sweep the chimney as there may well be eggs or even young in the nests ( see RSPB link)
NO BIRD GUARD/COWL ON YOUR CHIMNEY? It will be a waste of time any chimney sweep sweeping it if you are prone to birds nesting. As soon as the chimney is clear they just start again!! A meshed bird guard will stop this happening.A one off payment for a suitable cowl on your chimney is surely much better than not being able to use your fire for several weeks (birds can have two broods a year)?
Just for interest, we have been asked through one of the Associations to become CRB registered. This is in hand and we are awaiting the paperwork.
Still pretty busy, although as things are starting to quieten down we have decided to take some time off - so get us booked in a.s.a.p if need be.
Feedback from customers seems to suggest you all like the Chimney Sweeping website ( here June stands back & takes a bow!!). Very pleased about this as the whole site was intended to be informative and user friendly. If you have any suggestions (ie: maybe a section is too long winded) then email us & June will take a look.
A very Happy New Year to all our customers - may 2013 prove to be a warm and welcoming one!!
New Year greetings from us all at Chimney Sweep North Devon. We hope your Christmas was a relaxing time despite the terrible weather (funny how our minds 'fade' it all somehow).
For those who were flooded though, clearing up is still underway no doubt - our little stream came halfway up the rough ground behind us - first time in 18 years that's happened. Keep everything crossed for a drier 2013.
Work wise, we are STILL busy (although we did manage to get some time off over the Christmas). Things should be easing off a little towards the end of February so if you would like us to visit please give us a call or email.
Still very busy.Booking right into December now. Still regular customers only until after Christmas - sorry
Charges still the same - from £35
- We said we would be putting up our prices - as yet this hasn't happened. We will seriously have to address the issue next year, but in the current climate we figured why make life even more difficult for people?
- Heard of Power Sweeping?
It's basically a head attachment to certain types of rods operated by a drill inserted into the bottom rod. The head spins as it is inserted into the chimney
We have decided to remain with traditional methods at present.**
