The sheets, which comes in five varieties and a range of sizes, protect the sweeper and the room from debris, allowing them to do “a cleaner and more professional job”, Mr Lashman said.

“There has never been a product like this in the entire history of chimney sweeping and I have high hopes that Sweepmate can become a true friend of chimney sweeps and liners in countries where traditional coal and peat fires and stoves are still widely used,” the entrepreneur said.

The US could prove a lucrative market, he added, as wood-burning stoves remain commonplace.
