Chimneys / Liners should be swept at least once a year for safety and in compliance with your house or business insurance.


Having your Chimneys / Liners swept may seem like an unnecessary expense but we are also checking for any leaking that causes dangerous gases to re-enter the home or business.


If you are a landlord it is a legal requirement for you to have the chimneys / Liners in your rental property swept and certified at least once a year. 


Whether you have an open fire, an AGA, Rayburn, wood burner or multi fuel stove, chimney sweeping isn't the dusty, dirty job it once was. With the right chimney sweepers and the right equipment, your chimney will be clean, without making the rest of your house a mess.

Preparing for your sweep

  • It is important that you check the Safety Warning Tap above to see if you have any of these and let me know before i turn up as these will have to be removed before sweeping the chimney as ladders are not carried all the time.
  • It is important that you allow at least 12 hours for your chimney or appliance to cool before we arrive.
  • Please remove all ornament from the mantel piece and hearth before our visit.
  • There is no need to cover any floorings or furniture as we use specialist industry covers.
  • We use a special industrial vacuum cleaner to catch and remove the falling soot, so we will need approximately a 1.5 metres space in front of the fireplace for the equipment.
  • Please allow around 1 hour for us to carry out chimney sweeping service.
  • Please also see our T&Cs Tap above.

The Institute of Chimney Sweeps are working alongside the Kent Fire and Rescue Services to help reduce the number of Chimney Fires in the County.
