Chimney Safety

It is crucial to ensure proper maintenance of your chimney when burning any kind of fuel, be it coal or wood. In the UK, there are approximately 7000 chimney fires every year, most of which can be prevented. Regular inspection and cleaning of chimneys play a significant role in fire prevention.

Many people often wonder how often their chimneys should be swept. The frequency depends on usage, but it is generally recommended to have your chimney swept at least once a year.

However, if you are burning wood, it is advisable to have it swept up to four times a year. For those using smokeless fuels, sweeping at least once a year is recommended. Proper chimney maintenance is essential for the safety and well-being of your home.
