Why do I need my chimney swept?


To minimise potential health risks

If you don’t ensure that your chimney is properly swept and maintained, you could suffer from several serious health conditions as a result. It is vital to remove any blockages or obstructions to make sure that any toxic fumes can escape safely and freely from your chimney.

To reduce fire risk

A main reason to have your chimney swept is to reduce the likelihood of a chimney fire happening. Debris and blockages are a fire hazard if they build up in the flue of your chimney and if left unattended, a fire could occur on your property, leading to financial and emotional damage.

To avoid smoke damage to your property and belongings

Over time, soot and debris will collect in your chimney if it isn’t cleaned out regularly. If enough soot collects, it could block your chimney’s flue which could send smoke, soot, and other debris back into your room. If you have your chimney regularly swept, the likelihood of this happening will reduce, meaning that your property and belongings are protected against any damage.

To meet insurance policy criteria

You’ll likely seek compensation if a fire should occur on your property, however, some insurance companies won’t make payments unless your chimney flue has been properly maintained and cleaned by a fully-certified chimney sweep who can issue a valid certificate of sweeping. In the event of a fire, you may seek an insurance pay-out for any damage that your property suffers.
