Hatfield Peverel Essex

One of our recent jobs was conducted at Hatfield Paverel, a large urban village and civil parish at the centre of Essex. Our lovely customer wanted a new wood burner top fitting to a Savoy Elegance mk2 Franco Belge. In addition to this, we provided a full service to the stove. This service included a full sweep to ensure there was no build up soot or any blockages, all of which could be potential fires. Thankfully during this sweep we didn’t find anything concerning, just needed a good sweep to ensure its fully safe for when in use. Not only does this help prevent house fires, but having a regular chimney sweep can help protect the flue liners, therefore saving our customer money in the long run.

This job was completed without any issues, and with lovely feedback from our customer. We always ensure that any mess we make is fully cleaned up after we have done, and we protect furnishings.

Most people are unaware each year in England, approximately 40-50 deaths occur from carbon monoxide poisoning. Whilst many more are admitted to hospital suffering from carbon monoxide poising.  In addition to this, the Fire Rescue Services attended around 7,000 chimney fires each year. Many of these fires & deaths could potentially be avoided by having your chimneys and flues swept regularly by a qualified chimney sweep.


Chimneys should be swept regularly to remove the build up of soot, creosote and other debris. These are 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


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.

A lovely review from one our recent customers.

‘Evening Dave
Just to thank you for your work today.

Clearly the previous sweep had not put the internal top plate in the correct position which caused the draw problems and the lack of internal space.

Now that you have placed the parts in their proper position the stove is amazing in terms of both clean burning and heat production. We can now place reasonable size logs !

Well done for a proper job
