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.

Clean Your Chimney Regularly And Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Another main reason for regular cleaning is to make sure the passage to the outside world is clear and unblocked. This means the toxic gases that can build up when you have a fire lit, escape without hindrance. Carbon monoxide poisoning has been in the news quite often lately and one of the causes is a blocked flue way. Many foreign bodies can obstruct a chimney including, soot, debris from the building, bird nests, organic matter 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.


Our professional chimney sweep services include:

  • Chimney Sweeping - clearing soot, ash and any other flammable material.
  • Chimney Capping - cap the top of the unused chimney, helps with energy efficiency.
  • Safety Surveys - check out your chimney for any problems - good for insurance purposes.

How often should a chimney be cleaned, depends on what it is used for:

  • Coal (Biannually)

  • Wood Burning (Quarterly)
  • Oil (Annually)

It is prudent for insurance purposes to have your chimney swept regularly and documented with a certificate.


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.
