Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What should I do to prepare for the chimney sweep?
A. In most cases, you will need to leave an area in front of the fireplace (about 2 metres square) to give the sweep enough room to work. Hot ash should always be removed the night before.

Q. How do I know if my chimney needs sweeping?

A. 1. If you find soot is falling on to the fireplace
2. There is a strong smell of soot in the room
3. If you have just moved homes and would like to use your fireplace
4. If you think you have birds or squirrels nesting in your flue.
