    I had a great lad in when we moved into our place last year quick and he left the place spotless. I'll ask Mrs Ziedth tonight when I get home this evening who he was.

    Try Keogh's. They advertise in the Waterford today. A really tidy job for just 25 euro.

    There's a guy in Tramore who cleans chimneys and I can't find his number. His name is Tony Power. Does anyone have a contact number for him?

    -1000 For Keoghs ,

    He broke my stove (firebricks) as he never removed the top one before pulling some debris down ontop of them cracking them instantly, when I went to replace the firebrick we noticed the flue was still full of soot, and we had not even light a fire yet - when it was "cleaned" he charged but had never done a proper job!

    I fully believe this was because he was using the old style more rigid rods that were not up to the job, not the newer flexible nylon type than can bend around short bends in stove flues, when the fire was re cleaned we filled the ashpan twice with soot- there should have been nothing if the job was done right the 1st time considering no fires had been light between the two cleanings.

    Edit; extra info

    I tried ring him back two or three times, and he did not answer.

    Separately he asked to use the loo before he left, and in turn blocked our loo!

    Don't go anywhere near your man keogh. Same lad tried to con me mother out of a few quid when all she wanted was a chimney swept.

    Try Sean Cassidy, I found him very good to be honest

    I highly recommend Sean Cassidy. He is quick and clean. He is one of roughly 6 in the country to use a method called PowerSweep. Very reasonable with price. The best in the business.

    Just an update on this. Sean was around during the week. Took him about 15 - 20 minutes to clean the chimney, great job, left the fireplace spotless. Sound fella as well, would highly recommend him. €30 in all for an open fire.


  • Registered Users Posts: 54 ✭✭✭ LiamD1977


    Same experience with Sean, Sound fella very reasonable.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29 ✭✭✭ BonmahonHammers


    +1 Sean Cassidy
    Had him round today €30 for a cleaning left the place immaculate top job in half an hour


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,380 ✭✭✭ danjo-xx


    Is it €30 regardless of whether its a bungalow or a two story house.


  • Registered Users Posts: 81 ✭✭✭ moans3536


    have experience with both keoghs and sean cassidy...

    Keoghs lads arrived with a nelfix hoover, and all they did as far as i could see was hoover the inside of the stove, no brushes or anything and left a big mess. Could not wait for them to leave (all these lads were missing was cowbo hats).

    The year I got Sean Cassidy , lovely chap, did a great job and also gave me advise about a part that would benefit my stove, really know his stuff and left
    the place spotless.

    I'd say so, mine is 2 story. I have an open fire so dunno if it would be different for a stove.

    I just had Paul Hurley (087 9790952) clean my insert stove chimney this morning. We had the Keogh fella clean the chimney in September THIS YEAR and I happened to mention that he was very reasonable to a pal of mine and he said that the same fella WRECKED his stove when he "cleaned" it. So anyway we started lighting the stove and we weren't getting nearly the heat out of it that we got last year, so I bit the bullet and got Paul in on my friends recommendation. He took a sack of soot out of the stove and couldn't believe that the Keogh fella had only cleaned it a months worth of fires ago. Keogh is a DISGRACE and shouldn't be allowed to trade, I think he only did to my stove what he did to another posters - hoover the inside of it. Paul did a great job and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, he has invested in his trade and has all the equipment needed to do the job properly.
