Sweeping Frequency

I will clean your chimney in a clean and efficient manner, causing very little disruption to you and your home. Below I have listed the minimum frequencies as recommended by the guild, and upon visiting I can advise further depending on your particular circumstances.

  • Smokeless coals:              At least once a year
  • Wood:                               Every quarter when in use
  • Bituminous coal:               Twice a year
  • Oil:                                    Once a year
  • Gas:                                  Once a year

Looking after your chimney

Remember clean chimneys are much less likely to catch fire. UK statistics show that there are thousands of chimney fires every year.  This is mainly due to infrequent sweeping, burning of unseasoned wood and smouldering fires left overnight.
