Have you booked in for a Chimney Sweep?
There is nothing more picturesque than having the family sit around the fire embracing the Christmas spirit. However, what many people forget to do during the build up to Christmas is to get their chimney sweep. Not only is it essential to have your chimney swept ready for the big man to slide down with all your presents, but it is also a safety requirement.
There are many individuals out there that believe they can clean their own chimney. However, this is not recommended by ES Sweeps nor most Fire Safety Institutes. An experienced chimney sweeper will ensure all debris and build up is thoroughly cleaned. They will also check for and remove birds’ nests, as this is a common problem with open fire chimneys.
Our dedicated team will not only clean your chimney, removing the soot and debris, but we will also inspect the infrastructure of your chimney for any hidden damage. A highly beneficial service for those who have had a chimney for several years. Not only does a regular chimney sweep help prevent house fires, it can also save you money in the long run. This is because most chimneys will have some sort of flue liner installed. A flue liner is the first line of defence against house fires and carbon monoxide poisoning. However, moisture can get trapped if the flue liner has a large build-up of soot and debris, corroding the liner. By having regular sweeps, you will increase the lifespan of your flue and ensure everyone in your house is safe from house fires and Carbon monoxide poisoning.
If you are looking for a team to come out and inspect and clean your chimney contact us. We work within the Essex and Suffolk area.
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.
