Did you know that unswept chimneys are the main cause of Chimney Fires?
Chimney sweeps are essential to remove soot build up, one of the most common causes for chimney fires. Regular chimney sweeping also reduces the risk of chimney blockages, another leading cause for chimney fires. These blockages can be caused by debris deposited by birds and small pests. A bird guard can also be supplied and fitted to block birds nesting in your chimney.
It is recommended your chimney flue should be swept at least once a year, if not twice depending on the usage of your chimney. If you need advice on when to have your chimney swept don’t hesitate to give us a call.
We provide sweeping services for multiple appliances including open fires, log burners, multi fuel stoves and kitchen ranges. The service includes a full sweep of the flue and soot removal ensuring all of the soot is bagged and hoovered, leaving your property just as clean as before the service. We also provide a certificate for this service upon completion of the sweep for insurance purposes. All chimneys are swept following the National Association of Chimney Sweeps code of practice. Our NACS membership can be viewed below.
We can also supply and fit bird guards, cowls, caps and chimney pots. If you have past experience of birds nests in your chimney or a draft coming into your room we will be able to assist by supplying and fitting a cowl or bird guard to prevent these issues in the future.
CCTV inspections can be important when trying to detect an issue that cannot be seen from outside of the flue or may be difficult to see. A CCTV inspection can be used to view damage to the inside of the flue or blockages which may be causing issues such as a birds nest. If you are having issues with your chimney, a CCTV inspection could help to solve the issue. An in-depth survey with written details about your chimney is another service we also provide.
We can also supply and fit many parts including door rope, stove glass, fire grates and stove replacement parts. If you need further assistance please don’t hesitate to give us a call and we will assist you. Maintaining a stove correctly is very important to keep the stove functioning safely.
