“We can respond to more customers than ever in a quicker timescale than ever before.”

Mr Soot Chimney Sweep is expanding its reach in both Cheshire and Lancashire, with the addition of new areas in both counties.

The company today announced it will be covering the SK9 postcode, which encompasses Wilmslow, Alderley Edge, Handforth and Styal.

In Lancashire, Mr Soot will be expanding into Leyland, Clayton-le-Woods and Farington, which come under the PR25 postcode area.

These announcements come hot on the heels of major expansion into Liverpool, Sefton and Widnes earlier this summer.

All together, it means Mr Soot Chimney Sweep is now covering more postcode areas than ever before.

Announcing the news, Mr Soot owner David said: “We’re delighted to be extending our reach in both Cheshire and Lancashire.

“We have always actively looked for opportunities to take the trusted Mr Soot brand into new parts of the region and beyond, and we cannot wait to fully serve the SK9 and PR25 areas.”

David believes that, as the busy season for chimney sweeping approaches, the team is perfectly positioned to keep up with demand. And he believes more areas could be added in the future.

“We keep everything under constant review. There are a number of areas which we don’t currently serve, but look very promising indeed.

“We are able to consider a number of growth opportunities because of the steps we’ve taken in 2021 to boost staff numbers.

“As we are now a multi-vehicle operation, we have more staff on hand to sweep, inspect and test more chimneys than we could do previously.

“Supporting them is an excellent, friendly bookings team and administrative staff who are on hand to take your appointment both on the telephone and online.

“This resolves a major bugbear for customers when it comes to dealing with tradespeople – that you can never seem to get hold of them or they don’t call back.

“You don’t get that problem with us. We have dedicated phonelines and offices across the North West, in Wigan, Manchester, Stockport and Liverpool.

“We also have a fully integrated online booking request system which is available 24/7.

“This dedication to all-round customer service means we continue to be one of the fastest growing chimney sweeping, testing and inspecting companies in the UK.”
