Why sweep your chimney?

 Whether you use an open fireplace or  a wood-burner or multi-fuel stove, regular sweeping is vital to remove soot and blockages that could be a real danger to your family and your home.  Severn Sweeps, chimney sweeps in Gloucestershire can help. 

A clean chimney prevents fires and allows deadly combustion gases to be safely vented through the chimney.  Regular sweeping in line with the advised timescales will help to prevent the build up of creosote and tar in the flue that could ultimately be difficult and expensive to remove.

Clean chimneys burn more efficiently, saving you money and helping to protect the environment.

Regular cleaning is essential for both brick chimneys and fully lined flues.

How often should your chimney be swept?

  • Smokeless Coals: Once a year
  • Wood: Twice a year when in use
