Chimney Sweep in Tarleton, Lancashire

I entered the family business back in 1990, a business my late father Tommy Howard had started some 30 years earlier. Today the business has grown beyond belief, and as well as a being a Master Chimney Sweep, I am also HETAS approved and registered to work on all solid fuel appliances and flues.

In addition in 2006 I achieved the only nationally recognised qualification in my field of work, a CITB/CITY & GUILDS NVQ in Chimney Engineering, an award I am immensely proud of.

I have built up an enviable reputation of reliable and honest service, and treat every job with the same respect it deserves. I guarantee that you will not get a better chimney sweep, and am well known as “A Really Good Sweep”. Clean sheets, clean shoes, clean overalls and a clean vehicle. I promise you a clean service that’s second to none.
