Frequently Asked Questions

Will it make a mess?

We use clean sheets that go in front of the fireplace and then have a dust sheet that covers the fireplace with a hoover attachment that slips through the dust sheet preventing any dust getting passed. We always respects peoples homes ensuring we leave them as we find them. However this said, there is a potential risk of a soot fall, mostly with open fires that haven't been swept properly or in a while.

 

How often does my chimney need sweeping?

 

It is recommended that your chimney is swept at least once a year. This will prevent the build up of soot and reduce the risk of a chimney fire.

 

 

Are your sweepers trained?

 

Yes, all our sweepers are fully trained and insured. This means our service is the very best and carried out by trained professionals. We issue a completion report for every job we complete.

Will you need to access the roof?

 

No, everything we do is carried out at the base of your chimney breast. We use extendable poles to ensure our brushes reach right to the top of the chimney.

 

If I have an upstairs chimney in the same location will they both be cleaned with the one sweep?

In all cases the chimney is separate meaning it will require a seperate sweep.

Do I still need a chimney sweep if I have a stove?

Although stoves are usually more efficient, they still produce soot. The flue can still become clogged with soot especially during winter periods, this leads to a slower burn and increased chance of smoke entering the property and soot coming down! We recommend that you have your stoves swept and inspected annually.
