Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to sweep my chimney?
In order to prevent potential hazards such as house fires and keep your family safe, your chimney needs to be regularly inspected and cleaned to remove debris that can build up during use. Animals such as birds can nest in the chimney and cobwebs can continuously build up causing smoke to leave the chimney slower. Sooty and Sweeps provides an inspection in order to find any potential risks or hazards, as well as highlighting any structural problems that could allow smoke to escape through cracks into your home.
How often should I have a chimney sweep?
Sooty and Sweeps recommends sweeping your chimney once a year when burning smokeless fuels, and twice a year when burning wood or bituminous coal.
What is involved when sweeping a chimney?
Sweeping a chimney yourself requires a lot of patience and time as well as the right tools. If you decide to clean it yourself make sure to have plenty of sheets to protect your carpet or furniture from soot/debris, as well as the correct vacuum and brush. If you cannot see up the chimney even after a thorough sweep, it is best to hire a professional chimney sweeper. When maintaining your own chimney it is a good idea to buy a DIY manual, for structural damage again it would be best to call out a professional.
Does Chimney sweeping make a mess?
Chimney sweeping can be a very messy job dependent on how the engineers take the time to set up. Our expert chimney sweepers have years of knowledge and experience so they know how to clean a chimney with minimal fuss. A good chimney sweep business will place sheets around the entire room, on the furniture, around the fireplace, and then screening off the fireplace to prepare it for the chimney sweep. The soot and debris that then falls down the chimney will fall behind the screen, once the chimney sweep is finished we simply remove the screen and vacuum up the soot and debris. Job done with minimal mess and stress.
