Getting your Chimney Swept regularly is important when keeping yourself, your family and your home safe. Essex and Suffolk Sweeps recommend that the more you use your chimney the more it’s cleaned, especially if you are burning wood. Most people are unaware of the potential dangers caused if you don’t get your chimney swept. The most common being fires caused by the build up of soot. According to research, 40-50 deaths occur every year in the UK due to Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Many more individuals are admitted to hospital. Whilst, the Fire Services are called out to around 7,000 Chimney fires every year, this causing a severe strain on their time and resources.

Have you had your chimney swept in the last twelve months?
If not, it’s even more important now as the soot will have built up over the burning season.
Chimneys should be swept regularly to remove the build up of soot, creosote and other debris. This is deposited from the fuel you are burning on your stove or in your fires. It is this build up which could potentially cause a chimney fire. How often your chimney should be swept is dependent on what fuel you are burning.
- Smokeless coals: At least once a year.
- Wood: Once a season when in use.
- Bitumous coal: Twice a year.
- Oil: Once a year.
- Gas: Once a year.
The majority of insurance companies require chimneys and flues to be swept as part of the insurance terms and conditions. Many insurance companies will also not pay for a claim where intervals between sweeps have been observed and documented by certification. Be assured that once your chimney or flue has been swept you should be issued with a Chimney Safety Certificate which is recognised by all leading insurance companies. As a Guild member sweep you will receive this certificate from Essex & Suffolk Sweeps on completion of works along with a smoke draw test which we perform on all chimneys at no additional charge.
All work undertaken will be carried out by a certified and fully insured member of the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps.
