Chimney Sweeping

A clean chimney is essential to the continuing efficient and safe operation of all solid fuel heating and cooking appliances. A regular sweep ensures any deposits or debris are removed, drastically reducing the risk of chimney fire and carbon monoxide poisoning. A clear chimney will also improve the burning efficiency of the appliance.

HETAS and Sweep Safe advise having your chimney swept at least twice a year when burning wood or bituminous house coal and at least once a year when burning smokeless fuels.

The best times to have your chimney swept are in the summer or before the start of the burning season. If your stove or fireplace is used heavily the chimney should be swept again after the main peak of the burning season, usually around January-February.

Moved Home & Not Sure?

If you have recently moved into a home with a chimney it is important to have it swept and inspected prior to lighting up for the first time.

This can be done with specialist camera equipment and allows a visual check for creosote build-up, nesting material/vermin and the general condition of the flue.

How Does Chimney Sweeping Work?

Danny uses the latest power sweeping technology and dust control methods to guarantee a thorough clean. He works to the highest standard and will ensure your home is left just as it was when he arrived. Clean dust sheets are used to protect the area and fireplace openings are sealed to avoid any harmful particles entering the room. Your appliance will be tested and an insurance-approved certificate issued for your records. Failure to provide a recent certificate can invalidate home insurance in the event of a claim and can often hold up the sale of your home.

Danny will advise on specific sweeping requirements tailored for your appliance type and frequency of use. He can also analyse the fuel, soot deposits and condition of the chimney. This will allow him to provide valuable guidance on improved burning efficiency and ease of use.
