Will I need to get my chimney swept?

Unlike other companies we will sweep your chimney on installation day so you won’t need to ring around to find a chimney sweep with an available appointment at the last minute.

We will also quote you for geniune parts made from stainless steel and not mild steel that only lasts half as long. We will advise you as to the best fuels to use and how to get the most from your burner.

We also will book clear dates into our diary when we will arrive. Unlike other companies who will take your deposit and then tell you installation will take place in the next three weeks, and may not be able to arrive on a convenient day for you and make you wait longer.

It’s hard to tell how long an installation is going to take. It’s not always straight forward, especially when it’s raining, snowy or icy. Unlike some companies we won’t charge you extra labour if we have to return to complete the work quoted for.

Many people appreciate the way that we work, all of the testimonials on our website and all of our reviews on yell.com are genuine.

Need a good chimney sweep?

Our sister company Cleansweep Vac Services has been in the business for over 25 years and can bring a wealth of experience and expertise to your chimney and fireplace. They will provide you with a certificate for your insurance company to say that the chimney has been swept to industry standards and for small fee can provide a HETAS certificate for you as they are now HETAS approved.

You can book a chimney sweep online at http://www.chimneysweep.info/book-chimney-sweep or over the phone on 01462 671555. Please note that you have to book in the sweep as a HETAS sweep as HETAS certificates cannot be supplied retrospectively.

How often should I sweep my chimney?

Sweeping, Chimney Maintenance and repair, servicing of woodburners, fireplace installation and cowling fitting in the Hitchin area and surrounding villages. Take a look at the areas covered.

A chimney sweep can take anywhere from 20 mins (well looked after burners, burning at the correct temperature and burning good quality fuel) to 60 mins (large open fires burning high volumes of fuel). If you have a birds nest it could literally take hours to clear, so fitting a bird guard could be wise if you notice flocks settling on your roof.

Flexible times to suit you. Appointments available from 7:30am to 6:30pm during the week and between 10am and 4pm at the weekend.
