Why should I have a chimney sweep?

The purpose of a our chimney sweep; is to remove soot, blockages and built-up creosote from your chimney liner, firebox, smoke chamber and damper. Creosote deposit build up can also reduce the draw of the fireplace and reduce efficiency costing you time and money as you use more of both to fuel your fire.

How often should I have a chimney a sweep?

While it depends on usage, generally your chimney, fireplace and vents should be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances; giving you the opportunity to clean, maintain and repair areas that need attention. If you have your chimney serviced by Brown’s Chimney’s you’ll be part of our handy annual call-back service to remind you when it’s time to service your fireplace, vents and chimney next year.

What type of fireplaces and chimneys do you clean and service?

At Brown’s Chimney’s we clean all types of all wood and coal burners, ranges, log burners, open fires and boilers. Plus as part of our cleaning services we can inspect and provide a safety report on log burner fires; and repair and maintain any areas that need attention in your open fire brick cavity.

When should I book in for a chimney sweep?

We’re pleased to assist you with your chimney cleaning needs year-round but as a guide; right after you’ve finished burning for the season give us a call to schedule your cleaning service. If soot remains in the chimney during the summer months the acidic creosote eats away at the chimney and creates an odour. Odour is mostly created with a mixture of moisture and creosote. A pro-tip: Autumn is our busiest season so make sure you book your service early to beat the rush when the cold temperatures strike!
