  • Why do you need to sweep your chimney?
    You might think that your chimney is the perfect place for a fire, however, chimney fires are dangerous. If your chimney has a blockage and smoke can’t escape, creosote can build up. This can cause chimney fires. A build-up of creosote is not only one of the leading causes of chimney fires across the globe, but it is also a health hazard. Creosote can cause respiratory issues, rashes, sensitivity to light and even cancer. Regular sweeping will remove any creosote, soot, cobwebs, bird nests and any other blockages, helping to keep your chimney fire free.
