How did you get started in the trade and when was it?
As a serving firefighter in west Yorkshire I noticed we were going to more and more chimney fires so I decided to become a chimney sweep and up the standard of sweeping by giving customers a professional competitive service. That was back in 2003 and I have not looked back.

What is your favourite part of the job?
When I get a call to a problem chimney that other sweeps couldn’t sort out and we manage to rectify the problem.

The fact I’m in the fire service, I’m local and known by lots of people and that know my work is all done to a high standard, and that they won’t be over charged.
