As you may know, clearing Chimney Stacks can present myriad Sweeping Issues. Nesting poses particular problems, as living where we do, in such
'Breathtaking Countryside' nature holds the upper upper hand. In effect there are certain times when I'm not allowed to disrupt homes within chimneys.
I respect these rules as a countryside lover myself.
Contrary to public perception, July & August are the prime times to have your chimney swept. Condensation can lead to
Autumnal and Winter problems. I use high specification 'Rodtech' equipment to conduct one hour 'Power Sweeps' to ensure your chimney is 'Element Prepared', for the potential & unpredictable inclement weather that Cumbria (more than any other county) conjures up.
With this in mind, I operate a Summer Special 'Power Sweep' service Specifically to help prevent the problems a hard winter can cause.
Please call all me on 07763 145594 and I'll organise this for you.
Legend has it that King George 11, who's life was saved by a Chimney Sweep, invented the 'Lucky Aura' around my chosen profession. I do get asked to appear at Weddings to add to the "Special Occasion' , so YES, my wife OR I (she's also a Sweep) can appear for you in our regalia.
The cost is just £150 for two hours, slightly more if it's beyond a 20m radius. We're told that it adds a touch more colour and fun to such a wonderful day. Photographers love it.
"Thanks to ABC Chimney Sweep for making such a good job. No mess, No fuss and a very quick & professional job"

Bowness On Windermere
Welcome to my ABCChimneySweep Website. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Andrew Backhouse, I'm based in the very heartbeat of The South Lakes, in Windermere. I wasn't around when George Smart invented the first mechanical sweeper in 1803, (yes, it's true) BUT I am very firmly established here in Cumbra in one of the oldest, existing traditions. My experience stretches back many years.
Twenty Six years to be precise, including a lengthy apprenticeship.
The business has changed markedly down the years to where we are at now.
I pride myself on my professionalism and reliability. After all, I'm working in people's homes, many of which require a degree of high level workmanship.
Each and every one unique in it's own way, from Listed Buildings to Stunning Thatched Roof Cottages, and from Old Styled Houses to Licensed Premises the length and breadth of our wondrous county.
King George 11 knew a bit about Chimney Sweeps in the 17th Century. Legend has it old Georgie Boy was out riding his horse, when a big dog came into his path and petrified the poor King's hack. Of all the many people in the street, only ONE came to his rescue, YES you've guessed it!! Our HERO in black appeared from nowhere and saved the stricken monarch. Much Applause.
The King then declared (cos that's what King's do) that Chimney Sweeps were lucky. So much so that myself and other nationwide colleagues are in demand for weddings, much to my wife's chagrin 😂
