Hi Hal


Thank you so much for installing my Morso Squirrel – I’m delighted with it!  And your service was absolutely first-rate: quick, efficient, tidy and helpful, and all at a very good price. I’d certainly recommend you to anyone who wanted a wood burning stove installed!

Best wishes

Hal recently installed a Morso Squirrel wood burning stove in our new home.  From the start of discussions through the site visit and the installation itself, Hal and his team did a superb job.  The standard of his work is of the highest order and satisfies all regulatory requirement.  Based on our experience we would have no hesitation in recommending “Swept Away” for an efficient, friendly, reliable and competitive service.

“Hal replaced my two open fires with two 5kw woodburners – the Morso squirrel and the Petit Fleur. One chimney had to be lined, one needed reconstruction and work removing bricks back to the original chimney depth- He spent two days here getting them both fitted , swept, chimney pots fitted and everything you’d expect. He also took extra time to move the dining room burner forward into a better position to maximise on heat output – for no extra cost – The house is much warmer with burners on as we can leave them on all day now – I’d certainly recommend Hal and Ben to anyone – Dan Baldwin – Cootham /nr Storrington 07/02/2013

Petit Fleur 5kwHi Hal,Just a little note to say a huge thanks for the great job you did installing the wood burner in Mike’s man cave. Thanks for the great advice on the size and type of stove, as well as on the best wood to use and maintenance going forward. Even bigger thanks still for coming and doing such a sterling, professional job of fitting it despite the heavy snow! The wood burner is keeping Mike warm and me happy: all I need to do now is get a bed in there and there’ll be no need for him to come into the house at all! 🙂

Very best wishes, Amanda Minty Brighton 25/02/2013

Hi Hal Thanks for the great work installing our two wood burners. Not only are we warm, but my wife sleeps well at night knowing that I haven’t just stuck a pipe up the old chimney and hoped for the best. Best regards,

Hello Hal

The log burner is going great, thank you. I have another one to fit through work. It’s in Horstead Keynes. Would you be ok to pop up and have a look for me? I would like to get something in the diary.

“Hi Hal, All is good with our flues, they are getting some exercise too in this cold snap. How about this for a testimonial?.

“Hal fitted a flue for my woodstove, I learnt he also swept chimneys. He now sweeps mine, those of my neighbours either side and we have interest from 2 others on our road, how come? Well he is prompt, thorough, knowledgeable and straightforward. Shame he doesn’t have a brother who fixes cars.”

Maybe its over the top but cut out the bits you don’t like. Cheers Have a good festive break. Cheers Mike”


“Great job thank you – installation of solid fuel fireplace. Quick, clean and very friendly, would definitely recommend and will be calling you again when the next sweep is due !”

“Hal Kaye put in a chimney liner for me under extremely difficult weather conditions. He did a very professional job, within time and quoted budget. An extremely helpful friendly and courteous man I can recommend him highly. I wish all tradesman were like him.

Range-stove-installationHal was great – he fitted a wood burning range Esse cooker and also a wood stove. He was superb and really helpful even when the Esse cooker had some manufacturing issues he helped us resolve the problem. Thanks Hal, and see you for sweeping in the new year.

Wood Burning Stove Installation October 2012Hi Hal A tricky job completed as estimated, with skill and professionalism. Our wood burner is now fully operational, draughts from a previously very large open chimney eliminated, and we are delighted with the result. Wish we’d known ages ago that the whole procedure would cause so little disruption and produce such good results. We would have no hesitation in recommending Swept Away.

Will this do, or do you want us to submit it via your website. Regards Richard
