Why Sweep?

Why you should have your chimney swept

 

The primary reason for the sweeping of chimneys is to remove flammable soot and creosote to aid in the prevention of chimney fires. These extremely fierce fires can be very dangerous and possibly lead to house fires and loss of life.

Secondary reasons for sweeping of flues are to ensure a clear passage way which the toxic exhaust gasses can escape through. Deaths through carbon monoxide poisoning have been well documented in the press and a major cause is a blocked flue.

 

Last but not least it keeps your appliance operating safely and efficiently.
