This September we envisage the start of a very busy season with the previous long drawn out winter and a cold wet summer saw us all using our stoves and open fires for a much longer period than normal.Even sweeping in august I had some customers still having the occasional fire!!!! If we have not visited you over the summer or have not received a reminder from us, then do get in touch now to book your sweep. We are already taking bookings for mid October!!!
If, as we hope, you will be using our services the next time you need a Sweep, please contact us as early as possible.
On our travels around Chudleigh, Newton abbot and Torquay It has come to our attention that a lot of people who have Stoves with liners are not getting them swept on a regular basis!!
What we are hearing from some clients is this: Because we paid out for a liner to be installed we didn’t think we needed to get it swept that often!! This is far from correct.
Any Reputable Stove Suppliers and installer, will and should, go through everything connected with the safe running and maintenance of your appliance. Unfortunately there are some out there, as within any organisation, who do not adhere to the strict Guidelines and Regulations set down by their governing bodies.
We recommend that for the occasional evening and weekend burn you have your appliance swept once a year and for heavier usage you have it swept at least twice a year. The burning of dry, seasoned wood is a must and we feel that under no circumstances should the burning of Coniferous wood be undertaken.
Buying stoves online is an ever more popular and in some cases cheaper proposition. But what we would say is before, wherever possible, visit a Stove Shop before you make an online purchase as sometimes people are very disappointed with what gets wheeled through their front door. In most Stove/ Fireplace shops you can actually see some of the stoves they have in burning. When there you will get a feel for the design of Stove you are thinking about buying. Size / Style / KWS etc. The Venting of Stoves is very important and is a legal requirement on stoves of 5 KWS and above. For further info please take time to look up building regulation J.
At ProSweep we do no supply or fit Stoves of any sort and you can be rest assured that any advice and information we give will be of a totally unbiased nature.
Hopefully we will see you soon.
