Chimney Sweeping

You should have your chimney swept at least once a year, more often if you use it regularly. We can sweep your chimney, from an open fire or wood burner, whether it is lined or unlined.

We are also able to sweep a range of other appliances such as Aga's & Rayburn's.

We are happy to discuss your individual requirements prior to arranging a visit.

Cre-Away Treatment

Cre-Away can be used to modify third-degree creosote by converting it into a more brittle state that has a different expansion/contraction rate than the flue it is attached to.

During heating and cooling cycles, the treated creosote loses its adhesive properties so it can be more easily removed. Creosote and soot build-up in fireplaces or wood stove chimneys can be a fire hazard if it is not properly cleaned and maintained.

All chimneys should be inspected and/or cleaned annually by a qualified chimney sweep.

Cowl Fitting

Protecting the top of the chimney is an important part of ensuring your chimney is in good working order, and well protected.

Having a correctly fitted cowl will prevent damp coming down the chimney when it rains and also prevent birds from accessing your chimney and building a nest.

If you need more than a cowl, we are able to repair or replace chimney stacks and pots, get in touch for an indiviual quote.

Luke did a brilliant job of cleaning the chimney and the wood burner without any dirt or dust in the room. You won’t find a better sweep! Wood burner looks like new too 😊

Luke came out today, did a great job of sweeping our log burner. Left the room sootless. Great service at a very fair price.

Luke did a great job sweeping our chimney today. He was friendly, did a great job, super tidy and provided some really useful information and advice on helping our wood burner burn more efficiently. I'll definitely be in touch with Sooty Brushes next year!
