It is recommended by the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps , HETAS and the Fire Service that you get your solid fuel open fire, oil /gas fire, or multifuel stove's chimney / flue swept at least once a year.
If you have just moved in to a new house you should arrange a chimney sweep before you use the fire.
How often should you sweep your chimney? Read our simple guide.
Whether you burn oil, gas, wood, coal or biomass, your chimney needs regular cleaning in order to burn efficiently and economically. It is crucial to avoid the build up of soot and creosote, seen here in the photos, that can cause a dangerous and costly chimney fire and lethal carbon monoxide poisoning.
Make sure that you are burning seasoned wood, that has dried out for a minimum of 1 year and note that different types of trees take even longer to dry out. For more information check out the frequently asked questions on our sister site GTD Installations Ltd
It is important to get your chimney swept at least once a year if you regularly use your fire, and more often if you are a regular user. If you are unsure when the chimney was least swept; be safe and call an experienced sweep straight away.
We have been sweeping chimneys since 1991 and will supply you with a certficate of sweeping along with your receipt. HETAS certificates are also offered.
It doesn't matter if you have a woodburner, multifuel stove, a kitchen range, oil, gas or open fire or have a twin-wall flue rather than a chimney, it still needs to be regularly swept.

"Efficient, professional, local & friendly service" - Hayley in Herts
It's Autumn and so time to get ready for the colder months. Get your chimney or flexible liner cleaned out and have your log burner checked over for any maintainance that it might need. An efficient stove burns less wood and produces less harmful gases so it's worth keeping it in tip-top condition. Don't worry about the birds nesting until March - no need for fitting a cowl until the weather improves.
If you are thinking of upgrading your old log burner then our sister company GTD Installations Ltd, may be able to help you. Visit https://logburnerinstallation.uk/ for more information.
