Hello, I am Steve White, a fully accredited and HETAS Approved Chimney Sweep. I am also the director of Sweep Chief Ltd providing comprehensive chimney sweeping services for all solid fuel fires and stoves/burners and provide a minor maintenance service relating to such appliances.
I began the business in 2018 after retiring from the Police service as a Chief Inspector after completing 32 years’ service. I continue to live by and operate my company within the values of integrity, professionalism, fairness, and respect and am committed to delivering a professional, dependable, and honest service to my clients. It is therefore hugely rewarding to have been awarded for the second year running a 2020 business excellence award from Three Best Rated as a top chimney sweep in Poole as can be seen in my image gallery.
I currently conduct traditional manual and more modern technique rotary power sweeping of all solid fuel fires and multi fuel burners. I use the Snap Lok system of power sweeping. I am proud to be the “Chimney Detective” in searching for and finding issues that may affect safety and protect from chimney fires and carbon monoxide poisoning. I can advise on and provide solutions regarding maintenance issues relating to your appliance including provision of bird cowls, carbon monoxide alarms and flue temperature gauges to ensure burners are at their most efficient. I can also conduct CCTV inspections of flues and linings.
I take pride, in line with the National Association of Chimney Sweeps, of complying with their code of conduct and representing the association in my work. I have full public liability insurance and issue the necessary certification after each sweep.
