Meet your Wilkins Chimney Sweep

Matt Thomson

South Hams

Matt Thomson owns and manages the Wilkins operation in South Hams, Devon. He lives with his wife in Ivybridge, and brings a calm confidence to his work that stems from a previous career in the hustle and bustle of London.

Matt is a fully trained, HETAS Approved Sweep and a member of APICS (Association of Professional Independent Chimney Sweeps). He is Trading Standards Approved which means you can 'Buy with confidence'.

He offers a full range of chimney sweeping services, from open fires, Agas and woodburners to the fitting of cowls and caps and the diagnosis of chimney problems. He can also fit CO alarms and carry out CCTV surveys.  During the first 6 months of the year, Matt offers a patio and driveway cleaning service in addition to sweeping.

“Once upon a time I spent my days working and commuting in the centre of London, so the joy I get from bringing our friendly and professional service to an area as beautiful as South Hams is hard to beat! I’ve been trained by the very best in the business and I am absolutely determined to raise the bar on sweeping standards across the region.”

​Contact Matt to arrange a specific appointment at a time that suits you. Please include your name, phone number and postcode if you email him to avoid any delays in arranging your appointment.
