Don’t forget to get your chimney swept before Autumn!
Summer is still here and everyone is trying their best to get a bit of a holiday before the seasons change.
We all know what it means when the wind picks up and suddenly brown leaves are scuttling down our street. We look out the window and see that the nearby trees have lost their sunny summer aura. There’s something fresh but also vulnerable about the surroundings of nature at this time.
Autumn is coming! The time of brown leaves and hibernating badgers and splashy puddles (popular with kids) as the skies open for rainfall. It’s a colder time too – and that’s the way it’s going to be apart from the odd sunny day here and there, for the next six months.
Don’t be dismayed though – colder weather and that depressive hue of grey skies are beaten back by the fierce golden flames of your indoor fire! That’s right, we can still reminisce over the joys of summer by relaxing in front of the cheerful woodburner or open fire. Of course, don’t forget that your chimney needs a proper sweep to make it ready for the colder season ahead.
Please don’t fret if you live in Kent or East Sussex – it’s easy to arrange a chimney sweep with James the Sweep, the master sweep for Tunbridge Wells.
Just call James and make an appointment at your convenience. Don’t risk chimney fires or carbon monoxide poisoning. Get your chimney swept so that you can enjoy safe fires indoors throughout the Autumn, and into the winter. In fact, regular sweeping ensures you can use your fire all-year round!
‘The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter, and is about as ample at one season as at another. It is well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness.’ (Henry David Thoreau).
Phone this number: 07587 134 589. You will be able to ask James any questions about your indoor fire and book a chimney sweeping appointment.
James is a member of the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps and he has been sweeping chimneys in the wider Tunbridge Wells area for the past 20 years.
