Why and when should you have your chimney swept ?

The Solid Fuel Association recommends your chimney should be swept at least once a year, preferably before the start of each heating season, and more often if you burn bituminous coal or wood (SFA website 25.10.19) and you should check your policy as often it is a condition of your home insurance.

Chimney sweeping means a safer more efficient operation – prevention of chimney fires and improve efficiency in fuel consumption.
