Does Your Chimney

  Need Sweeping?

Lovely people and brilliant service, they take pride in what they do. Newly moved into our house and the first sweep we have ever had done. The sweep was carried out tentatively and methodically with all soot disposed of efficiently - the fuel burner and surround was left spotless. The fuel burner had clearly been neglected by previous owner and the Northwest Chimney Sweep gave some great advice on looking after the stove and safety tips for when in use. An extensive certificate was provided after the sweep for insurance purposes. I would highly recommend and will certainly be using their services every year for my annual sweep - 10/10  Nathan, Clayton le Moors 26/9/2020

Superb service
Hi. Just a short note to thank you for what is always a brilliant service and again this year. You fixed several things you didn't need to and provided some advice on how to get the fires started more reliably. We've now had two fires this year and they work so much better than last year. This is excellent service and doesn't go unnoticed or unappreciated. Thank you again!

Regular sweeping is vital to remove blockages and soot.

A clean chimney burns more efficiently, which will save you money, as well as helping preserve the environment.

By having a clean chimney it will prevents chimney fires and deadly combustion gases are safely vented through the chimney.

All operational chimneys need to be swept at least once per year. 

The NACS Recommends: 

  • Smokeless fuels to be swept at least once per year.
  • Bitumous coal to be swept at least twice per year.
  • Seasoned Wood to be swept four times per year when in use.
  • Oil or Gas to be swept at least once per year.

The fumes given off by all fuels are potentially dangerous, if smoke spills out of a fire place or you can see, smell or taste fumes, or a carbon monoxide alarm is triggered you should:

  • Open all windows and doors to ventilate the room and vacate the room including pets.
  • Let the fire go out.
  • Do Not operated any electrical appliances
  • Do Not re-light the fire until the problem has been investigated fully by a competent person.
