Mr Soot Chimney Sweep’s expansion into Liverpool, Sefton and Widnes has got off to a flying start.
Bookings and enquiries have been coming in for the team since their announcement last weekend.
Mr Soot owner David said: “It’s taken us all completely by surprise. When you expand into any new area, you expect it to be quite slow at first.
“But the enquires came in from the off. Just 30 minutes after we made our announcement, we had our first enquiry.
“Both in terms of domestic and commercial, the response has been really positive.”
Since last Monday, the Mr Soot team has also been inundated with well-wishers from across their current, loyal customer base and friends in the solid fuel industry at large.
Moves are now afoot to boost resources even further to keep up with demand, as the busy sweeping approaches.
“It’s been pretty much a whirlwind since the beginning of the year,” continued David.
“We’ve put an extra vehicle on the road and also taken on both sweeping staff and boosted back office resources.
“We now have a presence in four key locations – Manchester, Liverpool, Wigan and Stockport – and dedicated phone lines for each area.
“Our growth plans continue to develop though. We’re not resting on our laurels – there is plenty more planned.
“We’re at our best when we have set goals in mind. So it’s definitely a case of ‘watch this space!’
