Use A Chimney`s Sweep Services For Safety Purposes

House fires can be prevented if you have an active chimney, by having a professional sweeper coming and cleaning it for you on a regular basis. The fireplace can be a fire hazard and you need the flammable material that can build up inside the chimney removed.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Can Kill

Regular cleaning helps make sure the chimney passage is clear and unblocked. This means the toxic gases that can build up when you have a fire, escape without any problem. Carbon monoxide poisoning has been in the news quite and one of the causes is a blocked chimney passage. Many foreign bodies can obstruct a chimney including, soot, debris from the building, bird nests, plant material e.g. branches and leafs etc. A smoke draw test needs to be performed on all the chimneys in question to make sure there is proper ventilation.

Chimney Sweeping History In London

Around the 1200s the fireplace changed from being in the centre of the house to the inside wall, as we see today. They started off large and only heating one room and then progressed in the next few hundred years to the other rooms.

Building regulations were put after the Great Fire Of London and chimneys became more narrow and this was when the use of chimney boys came into play, as the Master Sweep would be too big to go up one to clean them. This practice thankfully was eventually abolished in 1875 and boys have never been used since.
