What Exactly Does A Chimney Sweep Do?


Sounds like a bit of a silly question, but a lot of people think that a chimney sweep's job is only that - sweeping chimneys, when in fact, we actually offer several skills and a lot of specialist knowledge, such as:

Sweeping a chimney properly and safely takes time and care, and only a professional can provide you with the certification that can validate your home insurance (check your insurance – in most homes with a working chimney, this is a strict requirement).


Here are just a few things I can do for you as a chimney sweep:-


  • Chimney swept, vacuumed and certificates issued for household insurance

  • Wood burning stoves and multi fuel stoves

  • Jetmaster fires
  • Aga flues
  • Birds nests removed
  • Complete safety inspections
  • Chimney pots, cowls and bird guards
  • Free advice on chimney liners
  • Colour CCTV chimney surveys
  • Electric power sweeping
  • HETAS registered engineer

I cover a massive range of areas, and am always happy to answer any queries that you have, big or small, so don't be afraid to ask if you need some help and/or advice when it comes to your chimney or fire place. It's what I love to do!
