Frequently Asked Questions
When is the best time to sweep my chimney?
April/May is the best time.
There are a number of reasons for this amongst which are;
As the fire has had fairly recent use the soot is still dry and can be removed easier. It is always a good idea, if there is a delay between the last fire and the sweep calling, to have a small last fire a day before the sweep’s call, ensuring dry soot and a good job. Damp soot is more likely to be turned into mud and stick in the flue, eventually falling off when you light up next time perhaps leaving you with the impression that the sweep did not do a good job!
Damp soot left in the chimney for the summer months does no good to the structure of the chimney. Older flues with brick/cement etc. will start to rot as soot plus moisture produces an acid, which attacks the inside of the flue. Even the more modern stainless steel flues are susceptible to rotting from damp soot. Get it cleared out.
How often should I get my chimney swept?
As an APICS member I encourage having your chimney swept at least twice a year (3 months within use) when burning wood or bituminous house coal and at least once a year when burning smokeless fuels.
I've just moved into a house with a fire place, should I get it checked?
Yes you should definitely have it checked and swept as it will most likely have a birds nest or will be in need of a sweep to prevent the a chimney fire.
