How long does it take to Sweep a Chimney?

It normally takes us between 40 minutes – 1 hour depending on what size, length and type of Chimney that you have and of course how dirty it is.ProSweep Trading Standards approved Chimney Sweep

Do you make a Mess?

No we don’t. On a Normal Sweep, we always try to leave the property at least as clean as when we arrived. We put down Sheets to Protect your Carpets / Floors. We also always screen off the front of the Fire when Sweeping and use a very Powerful Vacuum to stop any Soot escaping into the Room.

How Often should my Chimney be Swept?

As a Minimum, each Chimney should be Swept and checked at least once a Year and because of this we try and remind people when their Chimney is due for a Sweep.

This is backed up by the Fire Service, who specify that Chimneys should be Swept:

– At Least Once a Year When Using Smokeless Fuels

– At Least Once a Year When Using Bituminous Coal

– Every Three Months of Use When Using Wood, (Usually Twice a Year).
