Ideally you should have a sweep before you start using your stove or fire for the winter. For more information and advice on chimney sweeping visit the HETAS website.

Prepare for SK Chimney Sweep - There are a few things that you can do to prepare, prior to a chimney sweeping:

Ensure the space around the fire is as clear as possible for Sam to work. For example, remove any nearby furniture or valuables from the fireplace area.

Please note that a hot chimney can not be swept, however you can light a fire the night before a sweep (just let it go out naturally). Boilers, Agas and Rayburns must be turned off or put out at least 24 hours before any sweeping appointment.

Please empty the ash from the fire and remove any logs still there- now you see why its better to let the fire go out the night before.

Make an electrical socket available for use - the equipment used has a good length lead so a socket about 3m away is fine.

A clear route to the fireplace from the outside is a big help.

The average chimney takes about 30 minutes to clean, it can take longer depending on the chimney’s condition, when it was last swept and If there are any blockages such as birds nests.
