Why Does Your Chimney Needs To Be Swept Regularly?

The build up of soot within a chimney over time will restrict the flow of smoke causing dangerous chemicals such as Carbon Monoxide and dust to enter the room.

A build up of Soot is also a fire hazard as the chimney can catch fire causing the property to be at risk of structual damage, a fire in the chimney can reach temperatures hot enough to cause damage to floorboards and chimney pots.

Get chimneys swept and Fit an audible Carbon Monoxide alarm

Fuel-burning appliances need a consistent supply of air in order for complete combustion to occur and for the appliance to work correctly. If you are burning solid fuel as a minimum you will need your chimney swept at least once a year but please see our recomendations below regarding the fuel you are using.

If you have not already got a carbon monoxide alarm fitted then fit one now, they act only as a second line defence to keeping your chimney and flues clear but provide a quick early audible alarm to any problems that may arise between cleans such as blockages caused by birds etc.
