In 1964, the movie “Mary Poppins” was released starring Julie Andrews in the title position in addition to Dick Van Dyke as the loveable chimney sweep “Bert”. The rooftop scenes with the pair singing “Chim Chim Cheree” actually painted a rosier picture than what real “sweeps” had to endure until the late 1780s. Chimneys were often too small for adults so children as young as six, usually orphans or those sold by parents, were the toil source for this sooty dangerous task, however some children were made apprentices under a “master sweep”. His obligations, aside from teaching the “trade”, were to deliver a bi-weekly bath, presumably on Saturday night, to allow the young workers to attend Monday services. They were also not supposed to send a kid into a chimney that was on fire. As dreary as their existence was, the chimney sweep in addition to the boy in addition to girl “climbers” can be considered early workers in the Heating in addition to Air Conditioning industry before the A/C area was invented in 1902 by Willis Carrier, but fireplace chimneys work by creating a draught of rising sizzling air that unattachs smoke in addition to gases from the building in addition to disperses them into the atmosphere, then many houses still have them in addition to aside from added warmth, they deliver that holiday feeling with the “yule log” gently burning as the weather outside turns frightful. I don’t suppose a remake of Mary Poppins based in modern days would work. An Heating in addition to Air Conditioning specialist in addition to a suburban babysitter singing a song titled “Duct Duct Duree” is simply not as beautiful as the magic that “Bert” in addition to “Mary” brought to the screen. A qualified Heating in addition to Air Conditioning specialist may, but, be able to refer you to a chimney cleaning repair that thankfully, will not involve a soot-covered kid shimmying up into your chimney.
