Chimney sweep

Postby ipmcrete » Sat Nov 17, 2018 7:55 am

I had the phone number for a chimney sweep named Dragomir Dragoev (Drago). The number no longer works. Does anyone know how to contact him, or the phone number of another sweep?

I think that he went back to Bulgaria last year so probably doesn't use his Greek phone anymore

Not sure where you are based. I seem to recall seeing a flyer on a telegraph pole, just past the school in Kalives heading inland for a chimney sweep service.
(If you are still interested, I realise this is an old enquiry.)

I have 2 numbers but don't count on the names as being correct! 6974050547 (George) and 6977771975 (Jimmy).

Camino services definitely! Always very professional and absolutely no mess or dust after. Been using them for several years. They speak excellent English. George is the boss.

Being nosey here . How much does it cost to have your flue swept......I have had a set of chimney rods and brushes for at least 30 years I thought everyone had them .. Do I see a new career opportunity opening up ?.....

Do you have the vacuum as well? I think some of the chimneys George tackles are not that straightforward eg years of being blocked by bird's nests and goodness knows what. Would you be happy climbing about on rooves and unblocking from the top down? Maybe a new career but nothing is easy here :)

I think that the last time I had mine done it cost €50 but that included stripping and servicing the high-efficiency, built-in, closed wood burner

Do you have lots of different size brushes, Jeff. There are many different flue sizes here.

50 euros for a chimney sweep and a stove service sounds like a bargain .....and no I don't have loads of brushes ,just two a 6inch flue brush and a 12 inch for masonry chimneys ...I am however going off this as a career change ....
