Chimneys need to allow free passage of dangerous combustion gasses; a clean chimney is vital for these gasses to evacuate quickly and freely.
Regular cleaning removes soot and helps prevent dangerous chimney fires. Cleaning improves the efficiency of some appliances, saving you money on fuel.

An insurance recognised certificate is issued with every sweep, this will log the details of the appliance/ flue and any recommended remedial work will be noted.
