Our Services

It’s essential to have your chimney swept and inspected regularly. This is to check for any problems, such as soot, bird nests and any other blockages, which could be affecting the health of your chimney and to allow the free passage of dangerous combustion gases.

The sweeping process ensures that there isn’t a risk of dangerous gas emissions in your home, such as carbon monoxide. It also helps to put a stop to chimney fires by reducing the amount of flammable creosote. Chimney sweeping will also increase the efficiency of some appliances.

Our Safety Certificates are complementary with any Fireplace Service and Chimney Sweep we conduct.

  • Use well-seasoned firewood to avoid excessive soot build up

Why do I need to have my chimney swept?

Chimneys need to allow the free passage of dangerous combustion gases. Regular sweeping will remove soot, bird nests and any other blockages. It also removes creosote, which will help to prevent dangerous chimney fires. Chimney sweeping will also increase the efficiency of some appliances.

How often does my chimney need sweeping?

Frequency will depend on a number of factors which include the type of fuel used, appliance, duration of use, moisture content of wood fuel, and the type of chimney you have. As a rule of thumb we do advise getting your chimney cleaned at least once a year, but a Central Sweeps technician will be able to advise you on the sweeping frequency during the appointment.

Will having my chimney swept make a mess?

Central Sweeps technicians are very mindful and conscious of making as little mess as possible, and are trained in the prevention of dust escaping during sweeping. However, there are exceptional circumstances e.g. if a chimney may be blocked with a birds nest, which makes it difficult to guarantee that no mess will be made.

I have birds coming down my flue. How do I stop that?

Central Sweeps can supply and install a suitable bird guard for your chimney. Check out our flue parts.
