My name is James Hughes, known to customers as ‘James the Sweep’. I’ve swept chimneys on behalf of householders and business owners for the past two decades all over the South East of England. ‘This guy knows his stuff‘ – that’s what customer Rachel Powell said about my services.

I can count Hever Castle, The Knole estate and Adena fires as regular clients, among many others.
I sweep chimneys anywhere in Kent and Sussex including Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Sevenoaks, Crowborough, Hildenborough, Hadlow, Pembury, Paddock Wood, Maidstone, and Southborough. My main concern is to clean chimneys to help lessen the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and uncontrolled indoor fires.

Always Your Sweep,
What exactly does a chimney sweep do?
Many people think that a chimney sweep’s job is only that – sweeping chimneys. In fact, we offer several related skills and a lot of specialist knowledge, such as:
- Safety precautions for avoiding fire and carbon monoxide poisoning
- Choosing the most efficient type of wood to burn for longer which also saves money
- How to use your chimney or flue and help protect the environment at the same time
Sweeping a chimney properly and safely takes time and care, and only a professional can provide you with the certification that can validate your home insurance (check your insurance – in most homes with a working chimney, this is a strict requirement).
Here are just a few things I can do for you as a chimney sweep:-
- Chimney swept, vacuumed and certificates issued for household insurance
- Wood burning stoves and multi fuel stoves
- Jetmaster fires
- Aga flues
- Biomass boilers
- Birds nests removed
- Complete safety inspections
- Chimney pots, cowls and bird guards
- Free advice on chimney liners
- Colour CCTV chimney surveys
- Rodtech electric power sweeping
- HETAS registered engineer
I cover a massive range of areas, and I’m always happy to answer any queries that you have, big or small. So don’t be afraid to ask if you need some help and/or advice when it comes to your chimney or fire place. It’s what I love to do.
