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.
