From his base in Dorchester, Rob sweeps chimneys in all sorts of properties across Dorset, Devon & South Somerset. These include thatched cottages, houses, stately homes, bungalows, flats, hotels, guesthouses, restaurants, cafes & even some offices. Not only is Rob registered with HETAS for sweeping & installing, he also operates under the strict guidelines of The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps.
The Guild is the UK body for ensuring rigorous standards for both chimney sweeps and their customers. The strict guidelines set by The Guild & HETAS mean that Rob is required to adhere to tough safety standards. His equipment, knowledge and expertise allow him to fully assess the safety of your chimney and determine whether it is safe to use (or not!).
Once your chimney has been fully inspected & swept, a smoke test is required. Providing your chimney passes, you will be issued with a safety certificate which you can then use (if needed) for insurance purposes. Both HETAS & The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps recommend annual sweeping and inspection. Without regular cleaning, soot can build up within the flue - a major cause of chimney fires.
The soot from your open fire or stove can also lead to damage; cracks and holes, which if left, can reduce the extraction capabilities of your chimney, allowing potential hazardous gases and fumes to enter into your home.
The Chimney Keepers are based in Dorchester, Dorset. Since 2003, the business has been owned and operated by Master Sweep Robert Erskine. Rob delivers a friendly, professional service across Dorset, East Devon & South Somerset. Registered with The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps, traditional brushes and sweeping equipment are used to ensure your chimney is clean and safe to use.
