It is essential that your chimney sweep is trained, certified, fully insured and knows about health and safety issues relating to all kinds of chimneys, fireplaces or flues. This should give you peace of mind, knowing that your family are protected from harmful fumes and your building is safeguarded from chimney fires. Therefore on completion of all Chimneys that are swept by Flaming Brilliant an industry recognized certificate is issued, you must have this as proof should you have cause to claim through your insurance for a chimney related incident, this will show that you have maintained your appliance within the recommended timescales.

 

A growing number of insurance companies are including clauses about open fires or stoves in the small print of their policies. These clauses invalidate the insurance liability if the chimney or flue has not been swept and a chimney fire causes damage or a claim is made. For this and reasons of safety it is important to use the services of a qualified Guild Registered Chimney Sweep who will issue a valid certificate which can be presented to the insurance company in the case of a claim for any kind of damage.

 

Chimneys need to allow free passage of dangerous combustion gasses. Regular cleaning will remove soot and creosote, helping prevent dangerous chimney fires. Cleaning will increase the efficiency of some appliances. Bird nests, cobwebs and other blockages will be removed.

 

The sweeping frequencies below are for guidance. Frequency will depend on a number of factors including: Type of fuel, appliance used, duration of use, moisture content of wood fuel, type of chimney. Your Guild sweep will be able to advise on sweeping frequency during the appointment, the sweeping frequencies below are for guidance.
