Company info

John set up his chimney sweeping business in 1998.
He passed the NACS Training Course in Staffordshire the same year and followed with the HETAS Training Course in 2002.
He was the NACS Regional Officer for Kent from 2007 to 2014 whereby duties involved vetting new sweeps and investigating complaints against established companies.
John has also been a full-time fire-fighter since 1990. He began his career with Surrey Fire and Rescue Service before transferring nearer to home in 1998.
We have been sweeping chimneys in Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks and surrounding villages for over 16 years. During that time John also held the position of regional officer for Kent for the National Association of Chimney Sweeps (NACS).

  • A friendly personal service from a family company.
  • As well as sweeping chimneys for 16 years, John has also worked for the emergency services for 25 years and as a result has a unique insight into chimney fires and their causes as well as incidents associated with Carbon Monoxide.
  • Providing everything is okay, a NACS/HETAS certificate is issued as standard for every chimney swept.
  • NACS qualified and insured.
  • We are very happy to answer any queries you have during our visit.
