Why have your chimney swept?

Regular professional chimney sweeping and maintenance is highly recommended when using gas and solid fuel appliances. Regular sweeping and maintenance will avoid potential fire risks and dangers associated with using these appliances such as harmful gasses escaping from the chimney.

The British Flue & Chimney manufacturers association suggests:
“As a guide all flues should be swept before and during the heating season, and ideally at the end of the heating season to prevent tar and soot deposits having a corrosive effect on the chimney and appliance during the dormant period.”

As Professional Chimney Sweeps, we prevent the build up of soot and other blockages which minimises the risk of chimney fires and the risk of dangerous fume emissions escaping into your home. Clean chimneys also aid the efficient burning of your fuel and appliance helping create a cleaner environment.

How often should I have my chimney swept?

Below is a guide to how often you should have your chimney professionally swept depending which fuel you use throughout the burning season; this is the period in which you start and finish using your fire/stove e.g. October through to March:

Wood
Twice a year (1 sweep mid season and 1 at the end ready for the next year)

Oil
Once a year

Smokeless Coal
Once a year

Gas
Once a year (chimneys can become blocked by thick spiders’ webs and nests)
