Our chimney sweeping process

Dust sheets are laid to protect all carpets and flooring, the hearth is then covered and taped.

The brush and vacuum is then used to clean the flue and remaining soot is then cleaned away.

A "Smoke Evacuation Test" is then carried out to ensure that the appliance is running correctly.

An insurance recognised certificate is issued with every sweep.

Why have your chimney swept?

Over a period of time, soot builds up within your chimney or lining.

This causes a complete or partial blockage which reduces the draw and prevents the smoke from escaping out the top of the chimney.

This can lead to an inefficient fire or smoke entering into your room, or a fire starting in the chimney.

Causes and preventative measures

Burning unseasoned wood will produce a tar build up in your chimney which is difficult to remove and can cause chimney fires.

You must ensure your wood has moisture content less than 20%.
