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.
