Always Your Sweep,
What Exactly Does A Chimney Sweep Do?
Sounds like a bit of a silly question, but many 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:
- Safety precautions for avoiding fire and carbon monoxide poisoning
- Choosing the most efficient type of wood to burn for longer which also saves money
- How to use your chimney or flue and help protect the environment at the same time
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 I'm 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.
