Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to sweep my chimney?
The number one reason to sweep your chimney is to ensure your family and house is safe, a dirty chimney with obstructions and structural problems is considered a massive potential hazard, and we want to minimise any risks that can cause house fires. Your chimney should be regularly inspected to ensure that there is no debris, cobwebs or structural issues present, if there is debris and cobwebs you can clean those with a brush; structural issues such as cracks or broken flue lining should be looked at by a professional chimney sweeper.
How often should I have a chimney sweep?
Here at Sooty and Sweeps we recommend sweeping your chimney at least once a year if burning smokeless fuels, if burning wood or bituminous coal we recommend twice a year.
What is involved when sweeping a chimney?
Although performing a chimney sweep sounds like an easy task, is it by all means a lot harder. If you are going to sweep a chimney yourself it requires that right preparation, lots of patience and enough time to complete the process. When cleaning a chimney a lot of debris and soot can get on you/your carpet or furniture, we recommend using plenty of sheets to protect your items, a vacuum that is able to handle large amounts of soot and small debris, and the correct brush to rake the soot off the sides. After completing the sweep, if you look up your chimney and cannot see much, it may be blocked and we don’t recommend trying to fix this yourself as you could damage the structure of the chimney. Calling a professional chimney sweeper is preferable as we can perform inspections using advanced equipment.
Does Chimney sweeping make a mess?
Depending on how often you use your stove or fireplace, chimney sweeping can be a very messy job. Sooty and Sweeps professional chimney sweepers have the years of knowledge and experience that enables us to sweep chimneys leaving minimal mess at a quick and effortless pace. Any good chimney sweep business will ensure that the room is prepared beforehand by placing special sheets around all of your carpet, on top of furniture, around the fireplace, and finally below the chimney itself. We will then apply a screen to the fireplace when preparing to do the chimney sweep, this screen stops soot and debris from falling into the room and traps it behind it, making it easy for our chimney sweepers to vacuum the dirt left behind. Easy, quick and stress free!
