KEITH THE SWEEP HAS NOT RETIRED, and does not intend to do so for many years to come!
As most people know, Keith enjoys his job far too much to retire.
Keith set up Croyde Chimney Sweepers Association in 1979 as an exclusive organisation, all our members are reliable,
honest and fully insured. Our members covering the North Devon area include;
Keith the Sweep (01271 890544), Tarka Sweeps (01271 858354),
Exmoor Sweeps (01271 862872) and Pascal Olivier (01237 473457).
We have all had to clear up after bad sweeps and this is one of the main topics of conversation at our meetings!
Do make sure that anyone you employ to do work in your home is reliable and trustworthy, word of mouth goes a long way.
A good chimney sweep should be a member of a reliable chimney sweeps trade association (i.e. APICS, ICS, or NACS).
These organisations are there to train and increase the reliability of sweeps.
If you are unsure, do make enquiries about your sweep before you invite them into your home.
We would be happy to talk to you about any of our sweeps.
Solid fuel appliance installers must be HETAS registered to carry out this work, don't ever fall for "I'll do that for cash, no VAT"
as this will leave you, not only with a badly fitted stove, but also without a certificate or insurance,
this is not a job you want to pay to have done twice.
It is important that you install a Carbon Monoxide Alarm if you have an open fire or solid fuel stove.
Statistics show that many people suffer from the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning caused by badly fitted
and/or maintained stoves and chimneys.
(Follow Google links to the CO Awareness group and HETAS for further information)
