Qualified, experienced, professional chimney sweep

Who We Are

PH Olivier is a family run chimney sweep business, established in 2010 by husband and wife team, Pascal Olivier and Razale Scott Olivier.

PascalPascal, who hails from France, started his working life as a deckhand, mastering sea survival and endurance skills. Travelling perilous high seas, he progressed to working as a fishing vessel skipper. A career move into the construction industry allowed Pascal to develop skills in property maintenance and repairs, including masonry, painting, roofing, concrete, tiling and heavy equipment operation. Project management served Pascal well when he undertook his own property renovation.

Relocating to North Devon, Pascal commenced working for an accomplished HETAS engineer. Through this role he acquired expert knowledge in the chimney sweeping industry, becoming proficient at chimney sweeping and advanced fault finding.

Demonstrating assiduousness alongside awareness in health, safety and regulation compliance, Pascal undertook rigorous training through HETAS and APICS and qualified as a professional chimney sweep in July 2010. Pascal has an avid interest in gardening and relishes water activities such as angling.

RazRazale returned to her roots in North Devon in 2007 after living overseas. Having worked primarily in the hospitality industry and customer services, Razale knows the true value of customers where problem solving, empathy and communication are key traits.

Completing a BTEC diploma in Customer Service in 2015 gave Razale new impetus. Efficient business management, organisation, marketing, administration and budgeting skills served her well in founding PH Olivier Chimney Sweep. In 2018, Razale graduated with a distinction in Music Performance (FdA), where singing is her passion. She constantly expands on her skillsets in planning and scheduling, teamwork and collaboration to host fundraising events for local charities alongside voluntary work with Tarka Radio, Hospital Radio for North Devon.
