Do I Need a Chimney Sweep?

If you have a functioning chimney and fireplace or stove, you will need to get your chimney swept regularly to avoid a chimney fire, heat loss and loss of functionality. A poorly kept chimney can also be hazardous to your health. Here are just a few of many signs that your chimney is due a sweep:

* Your chimney has suddenly started emitting smoke.

* You suspect that there may be a birds' nest or other animals (e.g squirrels) in your chimney.

* Your fireplace is releasing smoke into the room.

As you may already be aware, you need a certificate for home insurance purposes to show that your chimney is being maintained to an acceptable standard. As I am a qualified professional, each chimney sweep I carry out comes with one of these certificates.

If you have any queries about chimney sweeping, or if you would like to book, the best way to get in touch with me is by telephone. By calling up on 01273 617098, 01323 879046, 01892 829038, or 07825 163864, you can speak with my helpful operator Michelle. Michelle mans the phones from Monday to Saturday and will be more than happy to discuss the services I offer and take bookings.

The second best way to get hold of me is by email. The email address is a [email protected]. I check my emails as regularly as possible and aim to get back to you as quickly as I can.

You can also fill out an enquiry form from the website to ask questions to and let me know of anything you'd like to see featured in the site's pages (e.g any information about maintaining your chimney that isn't already on here that you'd like more of).
