Is your stove due a sweep and service?

It is important that you keep your chimney swept and your wood burner maintained. Chimney fires can be very dramatic, and carbon monoxide poisoning from blocked chimneys is very dangerous. HETAS recommends twice a season when burning wood, and once when burning solid fuel. In practise it depends on how often and how hot you burn your fuel, and also fuel quality and how efficient your appliance is.

It is best to get your chimney swept at the end of the burning season in spring, this ensures that the soot isn't sat in the chimney all year causing corrosion, and it gives us more time to source spare parts if needs be. Unless you don't have a bird guard on top, then we will need to sweep after September before you start using it incase birds have nested. 

Our services.

Spare Parts

We can supply and fit all the spare parts your stove needs to stay in top condition. Including door ropes, firebricks, baffles, and glass. We can also supply paint and consider full refurbs on a case by case basis. We also stock thermometers to keep you burning efficiently.

Birds Nest Removal

We take a very careful approach to birds nest removal, they can be very messy if the correct preparation is not done. This will likely take longer than a normal sweep and we will check with our camera that we have removed it all. Chimneys that are blocked with nest are a huge Carbon Monoxide and fire risk.


Every one of our customers will get a certificate at the end of the appointment detailing what has been done and any areas that need to be improved. Landlords will get a slightly different safety certificate for their records.

Camera Inspections

We use the latest camera technology to investigate and identify any suspected issues with your chimney. This is especially important on older and unlined chimneys.

Smoke Testing

We perform a smoke evacuation check after every sweep. If we suspect the chimney is no longer in sound condition and we aren't sure after a camera survey, we will do a full smoke test where we block the top and bottom and see where our white smoke escapes.

Bird Guards

We offer replacement and new bird guards for a variety of different chimney terminations to ensure they cant get into the chimney and nest. Better bird guards also stop rain getting into the chimney, and you can get specialised ones to combat downdraughts.
