Did you know that in the UK there are thousands of avoidable chimney fires every year. Being a fire fighter as well as a chimney sweep, I have been called out to many of these over the 20 plus years I have been in service. Between April 2018 and March 2019 there were 4,300 recorded chimney fires across England, Wales, and Scotland.

Why do we need to sweep our chimneys and flues?

Regularly cleaning your chimney is an important part of keeping your home safe for the winter months. That’s because as you use your fireplace to burn wood for warmth (or just for seasonal atmosphere), a highly flammable carbon based, tar-like substance called creosote begins to build up on the inside of your chimney walls.

Without cleaning your chimney regularly, you will begin to experience a slowdown in wood burning. Fires will be more reluctant to start, and they will not burn with as much vigor as before. But the main reason to clean a chimney is to avoid a chimney fire.

A chimney sweep helps to remove debris that has accumulated on the sides of a chimney. When the wood burns, it emits a variety of compounds throughout the combustion process. These byproducts are responsible for the black soot on the interior of your chimney.

When is the best time to have your chimney swept?

It is recommended that chimneys should be 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 just before the start of the heating season and after your stove has not been used over a prolonged period.

We will clean your chimney with the help of modern equipment and will do our upmost to ensure that no mess is left behind for you to clean!
