    Cleaning the chimney

     

    1. Chimney sweeping is an efficient and clean process
    2. This means eliminating the build up of soot from coal, wood, oil and gas fire systems
    3. It means clearing obstructions such as birds and animals nest, leaves and building debris, even cobwebs etc
    4. To help protect you and your home, ensure the chimney is brush swept at least twice yearly

    We recommend that chimneys using the following fuels are cleaned...

     

    1. Smokeless fuels - at least once a year
    2. Bituminous coal - at least twice a year
    3. Wood - a minimum of once or twice a year depending on usage.
    4. Oil - once a year
    5. Gas - once a year

    Moisture meters can be supplied to measure the moisture content within the wood. (Moisture levels should be less than 20% to avoid damage to your chimney.
