Bournemouth Chimney Sweep visits the most magical place in Dorset

Bournemouth Chimney Sweep Jim Chim-in-ey gets to visit some super amazing places on his sweeping travels around Dorset. 

One of the highlights of the year is his annual chimney sweep visit to the magical Sculpture by the Lake in Dorchester.


What is sculpture by the lake?
Surrounded by 26 acres of Dorset countryside Sculpture by the Lakes is an idyllic hub for art lovers and collectors that has been crafted by renowned sculptor Simon Gudgeon and his wonderful wife, Monique.

The Dorset Chimney Sweep's Video from Sculpture by the Lake

Here is a fun little video of Jim Chim-in-ey's trailer ride by Sam who is one of the friendliest and helpful grounds keepers you'll meet 😊

This is an exciting ride between the The Island and the River Keepers Hut which both can be hired out for the day. If you fancy having your own private area with a woodburner installed to keep you cozy as you take in the views relaxing by the lake visit - https://www.sculpturebythelakes.co.uk/hire


In total I sweep six woodburners with two of the stoves in their Gallery Cafe which exhibits some of Simon's smaller pieces of art. This is a great place to grab yourself a cuppa and a cheeky homemade cake while enjoying the warmth of a wood fire.

It's worth mentioning that all the staff I met on my travels at Sculpture by the lake were absolutely wonderful, making my visit an enjoyable one. It's great to be invited to sweep for such a warm and welcoming team.

Christchurch Chimney Sweeps view on legislation, wood burners and pollution

Are you worried about legislation, wood burners and pollution?

I think it's all down to education . . . Wood Storage, moisture content and an efficient stoves is key. I think it can only be a good thing if some customers with poor burning habits are encouraged to change their burning habits and I am all for new legislation that may helps promote positive burning.

If a customer is burning unseasoned wood with an in-efficient wood burner it can create a build up of poor quality soot within the chimney’s flue which in turn can cause a fire risk issues for the customer while also potentially having a negative effect on the environment.

Wood Chop chimney sweep
Axe - Wood Cutting
If that customer acquired a Defra stove with 85% efficiency and only purchased and burned fully seasoned wood that was below 20% moisture level. Then they drastically reduce the risk of a chimney fire and they also drastically reduce the stoves emissions.

Looking for chimney sweep advice for good burning practice?
visit my advice and guidance page where I have written a ton of information about firewood and stove efficiency -  https://www.jimchimney.co/p/advice.html

Poole Chimney Sweep Interview with Homes with Love Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch - Part One

What do you do day-today as a chimney sweep in poole?

The CCTV investigation side of chimney sweeping can be interesting when your trying to work out an issue. One job I remember. . . I had a gas fire where the builders built the new roof over the flu which pushed all the fumes into the loft bedrooms, that CCTV could have saved the customers life from CO poisoning.

There is also the bird removal side to chimney sweeping. I've got a new found love for pigeons from this job, removing a live pigeon that's stuck in a chimney is super rewarding and they are pretty tame birds, they will happily sit on your hand while you move them to a better position. [ I’ve spent up to to 2 hours to get alive birds out and thankfully have managed ]

Its a physical job too. I get a beach ready body during chimney sweep season. It’s just a shame that the season is September - February - so I lose it all just in time for the summer.

I think it’s a rewarding job being a chimney sweep, at the end of your day you get to help keep safe homes, prevent chimney fires and meet the lovely people of Dorset on the way. That's pretty cool.

Is there a tradition to chimney sweeping?

In traditional side of chimney sweeps are known as being one of the luckiest trades people in the world. People want to shake your hand quite a lot, especially the older generation who remember the tradition.

We get invited to weddings thanks to a century old fable about how a chimney sweep saved the king. Having a chimney sweep at your weddings is an old tradition that happened a lot for my mum's era as their parents were the ones who were booking the chimney sweeps. Sadly it's a little forgotten tradition but it’s something I get invited to about once a year. It's usually paid for by the mother of the bride. We crash the wedding and bring good luck to the marriage by stealing a kiss from the bride and shaking hands with the groom and offer a small gift.

We are also one of the only trades that gets to wear a top hat. I choose to wear a dead-mans hat, it's a little shorter than the traditional top hat. This traditionally is seen as a sign of respect to the customers of class.In short, I get to wear a top hat because King George II made a decree that chimney sweep are lucky and should be treated with the highest of respect.

Christchurch Chimney Sweep Interview with Homes with Love Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch - Part One

How did you get into chimney sweeping?

Family friend was giving up the trade and my Aunt convinced me to go on a few jobs with him, I’m really glad I did. . . I took to it quickly and just fell in love with the job.

I was warned by James that when you get into sweeping chimneys all you do is look at chimney stacks, pots & cowls . . . even on holiday. I thought he was joking. . . .but that’s what I do. You can actually tell a lot about a what’s installed and what's being burned in a property just by looking up at the chimney stack.

What do you love about being a chimney sweep?

The social side is super important to me, you get to meet some lovely, interesting people.

Sooty & Sweep
I've swept for John the famous puppeteer of Sooty & Sweep over in Kinson, Bournemouth - He gave me a great pin badge and was kind enough to give me a photo opportunity with me and the genuine puppets of Sooty & Sweep.

Bournemouth Chimney Sweep in Kinson with Sooty and Sweep 01
Bournemouth Chimney Sweep in Kinson with Sooty and Sweep
Animals in Wool
Another time I was sweeping an open fire in Wool, Dorset and there was a cat that had just had a litter of kittens who had to be kept in a box while i was sweeping. While I’m sweeping I was then randomly asked if i liked snakes and next thing I know im posing for a photo with a big snake wrapped around my neck.

Lucky I Love Dogs
You have got to love dogs as a chimney sweep, as a guess ⅓  fire owners seem to have dogs. I sweep for a lady in Branksome who has a wonderful Great Dane and as I was sweeping her room I had to be welcomed in and was told to ignore her at first . . . which is pretty hard when shes jumping up at you and she’s 5ft tall.
After each sweep I shake my sheets out between each fire outside in the garden. The Great Dane was always interested in what i was doing and on the 3rd time. . . Out comes this great dane galloping over with her blanket and she starts shaking her blanket just like me, that was a cool moment.

Have you seen any great houses?

I see a wide variety of properties as a sweep, some modern some extremely old, some with beautiful views across Sandbanks and some big stately homes in rural Dorset to Lady’s & Lords.

I get to see some cool fires too.
Some so big you can walk into them and some with an open back so you can light one fire for two separate rooms. The most unique i sweep is a fireplace that's designed as an actual mouth with teeth.

Dorset Chimney Sweep Rescues Bird from Chimney

💀🐦 Bird saved from horrible death: This fella got himself stuck at the bottom of a bricked up fireplace and the pigeon was too big to squeeze through the fires throat. He was gently offered a lift to the top of the chimney stack on a modified brush with a sponge platform, CCTV and a lot of patience. After a little rest on the chimney pot and a big shake off to remove the soot and dust. He flew away safe and sound thanks to the customers quick reactions to call in a chimney sweep. ⏳🔥🎩

Chimney Sweeping - Dorset BBC Radio Solent live with Jim Chim-in-ey

If you missed Jim Chim-in-ey talking about being a Dorset chimney sweep live at 7:50am on BBC Radio Solent.
You can watch the video below.



Talking to our Dorset life guest today and well Jim the Dorset Chimney Sweep is on the phone to talk to us.

Intro
Jim good morning I need your sign up on something, I want to do something a little bit cheesy, I guess this happens all the time whenever anybody talks about your life and stuff. Can i play Chim Chim-in-ey [Music] Dorset life time, I think it's only fair when you get a chimney-sweep on the show to play you know this from Mary Poppins and Dorset Life's guest today is who you've heard from it's Jim Chim-in-ey not his real name, after having had the nickname JC for years when this 31 year old took over a chimney sweeping business three years ago it seemed fitting for him to change his name. Jim lovely to have you on. 

Give me some give me a check on hows things are in the chimney sweeping world in the 21st century? 
Yeah it's going really well the wood burners has really helped thanks to the fashion of wood burners coming into homes has really helped to keep the business alive.

Your young, your 31 so how does one become a chimney sweep when they're in their late twenties?
I inherited the business from a feller named James and he is a family friend in my auntie, that is the person who knows knows the friend and she convinced me to go on a few jobs with him and I went went on a few jobs and I loved it.

What was he was the appeal? What did you what did you fall in love with quite so quickly?
Well I really liked the social side I love popping to people's houses and  having a chat and getting to know lots of interesting people.

When the James who was running the business before you Jim Chim-in-ey took over, did he pass the business on with any kind of a warning because I guess it's very easy from the outside to assume that chimney sweeping has quieten down over recent years.
He said there was just enough work out there just to tick on by and which was quite nice and I looked at the accounts and it turned out pretty good for myself so it's just just enough to survive which is what I wanted.

Is the job any different from what it would have been a hundred years ago? I guess you're not sending you know seven-year-olds up the chimney anymore but presumably its back breaking hard work is there any labor-saving devices? 
The biggest things happened in the chimney sweeping world is something called power sweeping which is attaching special chimney sweeping rods to drill and that's spinning for you so that when you get stuck on a bend and things like that it works a lot better. When I first started it was manual sweeping then ,you end up with a beach body in the winter, and you lose it just in-time for when the summer season hits. So power sweeping has definitely helped.

That's definitely interesting, we live in a house that is central heating but where my folks live in South Wales, my dad who's sixty nine now, he will still sweep the chimney and it's one of those jobs whenever he does it just the old-fashioned manual way then he'll come out with the creek in his neck and a sore back and I say why? Just get somebody in to do it
There is a lot more to it then you think, its about getting the rod sizes correct and making sure you get in a good clean, that is what we do.

You touched on there Jim that obviously the busy time it is ridiculous we're talking to a chimney sweep on a day like today, looking out my window blue skies and sunshine. Does anyone get there chimney swept in the summer is there any sense in that?
A few people do, but most people wait until September or February those are sort of our peak times either at the beginning of the season or at the end. If I swept it  mid summer and the customer is unfortunate enough to get a bird's nest afterwards, they would have to get it swept again to get rid of the nest before September, so a lot of people get its swept after the bird season.

So a bit quieter now, a chance you to take a break before things step up again, although there's every chance over the summer you might get a a wedding booking tell me a bit about this . . . you've had three over three years? 
Sweeps are famous for being being lucky, basically we saved king George II and he decreed and said that chimney sweeps we're lucky and he invited as sweep to his daughter's wedding and I'm from then we get invited. It was  our parents sort of era and their parents were the ones who bought us for the wedding and we turn up and we crash the wedding, steal the kiss from the bride and things like that.

How often have you done that?
I've done three of them so whats that. . . about once a year I get probably two phone calls.T

These aren't people that you know? You're just turning up to strangers weddings?
I found out about it because people were ringing me up asking if I do chimney sweep weddings in Dorset

Well there you go. Jim Chim-in-ey available to sweep chimneys and turn up at weddings.
Before we let you disappear is it is it true that you once swept sweeps chimney? Sweep of Sooty and sweep?
Yeah the property of John the puppeteer of Sooty & Sweep and I went in his house and the house is full of Sooty and Sweep and he was kind enough to let me take a photo.

Do I need an air vent installed with my fire or wood burner?

Why do I need an air-vent installed?

All heating appliances such as open fires, stoves and wood-burners produce heat from the combustion of carbon based fuels. Gas, oil and solid fuels like coal and wood require enough oxygen to complete combustion triangle below. The heat also enables the chimney flue to function properly, removing the combusted product safely from the property via the chimney as smoke.
Fire Triangle 02
The Fire Triangle (Combustion Triangle).
Open-fires and wood burning stoves draw their combustion air from within the room and are required by Building Regulations to have a permanently open vent installed to provide air from the outside of the property.

Without this ventilation there is real danger that the fire triangle of combustion will be incomplete, this can lead to a high amount of carbon monoxide being produced and reduce the efficiency of your chimney flues up-draught. This can be a deadly combination that can cause emissions of poisonous gases to the room. Which in the worst case scenario can result in sickness and ultimately death to the occupants.

Carbon monoxide is a poison.
Carbon monoxide is a poison.

Vent Overview:

Regular maintenance, inspections & CO alarms throughout the property is advised and customers should always install an air vent and take active precautions to support the safe and continued use of the appliance.

Want to know what size air vent to install?
