The primary reason for the sweeping of chimneys is to remove flammable creosote to aid in the prevention of chimney fires. These extremely fierce fires can be very dangerous and possibly lead to house fires and loss of life.
Secondary reasons for sweeping of flues are to ensure a clear passage way which the toxic exhaust gasses can escape through. Deaths through carbon monoxide poisoning have been well documented in the press and a major cause is a blocked flue way.
Regular sweeping of your chimney is essential to prevent the build up of creosote and soot and hence reduce the risk of chimney fire, soot falls and blockages.
Obstructions such as Bird Nests, Soot, Building Debris and even leaves and cobwebs can be removed. A smoke draw test will be performed on all chimneys after sweeping.
