Chimney Sweep in Sutton

That might be the reason why our local chimney sweep Steve feels so happy living and working here.

Chimney sweep in Sutton

Steve joined the Stova Team in 2018 after having worked as a Gas Engineer for 15 years, he is now living the joyful live of a chimney sweep. “As I live in Wallington, so only about 3 miles away from the Carshalton office, I am cycling to work every day despite the weather. This way I keep fit and also do my bit for the environment. What I enjoy most is meeting so many different people every day. Some days we don’t only do residential properties, we also have many local schools, pubs and restaurants where we work in. It feels great to sit in a local Italian restaurant at the weekend and tell my family about the chimney of the wood fired pizza oven, that I have swept only days ago.” he says.

Next to Sutton is Carshalton, where the main office of Stova Chimney Services is based. All the locals here don’t call us to book their annual appointment, they come and visit our stove showroom to book it personally. It makes us proud to be part of the local community.
