Chimney Cleaning Wellington
A clean chimney is a safe chimney. If you have a chimney fire, your insurance company may ask to see proof of when it was last cleaned as part of their insurance assessment.
We recommend getting your chimney cleaned annually. Cleaning the chimney removes blockages, soot build-up and creosote (which can ignite in your chimney and cause a fire) and keeps it working efficiently.
We typically take around 30 minutes to do a chimney clean. We cover your floor while we’re working and make sure everything is spic and span before we leave.
Frequently asked questions
What’s the best time of year to clean my chimney?
Chimneys can be cleaned at any time of year, but the best time is in spring once you’ve finished using your fire over the winter so you’re all set to go for next year. The busiest time of year for chimney cleaning is in the autumn.
Do I need to be home?
No, but we will need to arrange access to the property prior to our arrival and get you to secure your pets.
Can I use my chimney before a sweep?
You can use your chimney the night before, but please do not use on the day of the sweep before we get there.
Do you need to get on the roof to clean the chimney?
No, we sweep up and then back down the chimney, starting from the firebox.
Will I get a report outlining what you’ve done?
Yes you will. We provide a comprehensive checksheet of the work we’ve completed.
What wood should I burn?
You should always burn only well-seasoned (i.e. completely dry) untreated wood.
