Your safety and my safety is important, I have a family member who is vulnerable so I have taken a few extra steps to ensure that I can minimise the risk whilst still providing the top chimmey sweep service.

Disposable gloves at all times. (I double glove as standard when sweeping)

My chimney sweep face masks will be worn troughout my visit. (Standard practice when sweeping but I will now have it on throughout my visit)

No more coffee. Sadly as it's impossible to drink without removing the mask (Thank you for the offer but I regretfully will have to decline )

I will be politely requesting a 2 metre distance and that you sit in a different room throughout the visit.

Before attending the property, I will be asking if customers households have Coronavirus, are self-isolating or have any signs of symptoms as per UK Government guidelines.

Your friendly Dorset chimney sweep, asking for a little support.

Hello,
Jim Chim-in-ey here.
Your friendly chimney sweep, asking for a little support.

Many of you know me as your friendly chimney sweep by day, but by night I supliment my income by DJing across a few small pubs in the area, all of which have had the rugs pulled from under them.

Due to COVID-19 both my chimney sweep business has rapidly slowed and my DJ work has been wiped out.
This is a polite request to help this sole trader survive the storm.

How can you help?

CHIMNEY'S STILL NEED SWEEPING

WORD OF MOUTH
Could you recommend this chimney sweep to a friend or family?

ALREADY HAD YOUR CHIMNEY SWEPT?
You can buy your next 20/21 season chimney sweep in advance at this year's price + get a 5% discount.
Call for more info.

GAS FIRES NEED SWEEPING TOO
It is recommended that a gas fire is swept to remove dust & cobwebs which can cause dangerous blockages

Full service and individual repairs available.
{Link to chimney services and prices.}

STOP ANY DRAUGHTS
I install draught excluders. Installing a chimney balloon or sponge in disused stack can help keep the heat in your property. Balloons can also be installed in live chimneys to stop the draught while they are out of use for the summer.

SHARE THIS POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA, GROUPS OR ANYWHERE YOU THINK MIGHT HELP.

KEEP SAFE
Have you got a carbon monoxide alarm between 1& 3 meters of every burning appliance in the home?
Gas fires, gas cookers, boilers, Woodburners open-fires?

Is your carbon monoxide alarm out of date? (they usually last 5-7 years before the whole alarm needs to be replaced)
You can purchase your alarm from me for
£30.00 or £45.00 including installation.

I WANT TO DONATE
Firstly, THANK YOU, that is very kind of you. I'd like to thank you for even the thought of this.
