Having your chimney swept regularly is important. The reason for sweeping the flue/chimney is to remove the soot deposits that build up when the burning of carbon based fuels occur. By sweeping the flue/chimney we ensure there is a clear and safe passage for the exit of combustion products caused by the burning process. This lessens the chance of a chimney catching fire. The most common cause of chimney fires is infrequent sweeping. In order for your appliance to draw efficiently it is essential that you do not allow soot or ash to build up where it can block the flow of smoke and other products of combustion such as carbon monoxide.It is now recommended that a carbon monoxide alarm should be fitted in each room that has an appliance as all fuels contain carbon – including oil, gas, wood, charcoal, coal and smokeless fuel.
Guidelines from the Solid Fuel Association and The National Association of Chimney Sweeps state that chimneys should be swept according to the type of fuel used:Smokeless fuels; at least once a yearBituminous coal; at least twice a yearWood; quarterly when in useOil; once a yearGas; once a yearSweeping will also ensure the removal of obstructions that may have built up inside the flue such as Nests, Cobwebs,Loose Lining (old brickwork/Lime mortar). All of which could prevent the chimney from drawing properly.We are always willing to help and advise you on the safe use of your appliance if you are unsure.
