Chimney Sweeping

Shuff & Co Ltd specialise in chimney sweeping to coincide with our solid fuel wood burning stove installations. We are also proud members of the National Association of Chimney Sweeps and are currently working towards master member qualifications putting us in a position that few other chimney sweeping companies are in.

The chimney sweep service offered seeks to prevent chimney fires and reduce the risk of dangerous fuel emissions being emitted into the environment. With chimney fires becoming a great concern in locations with older houses and being responsible for widespread damage to homes, regular chimney sweeps and maintenance are key to prevention.

With one of the most common causes of chimney fires being infrequent cleaning, regular chimney sweeps are required to ensure removal of any obstacles that may have lodged in the flue such as cobwebs, nests and loose brickwork and also most importantly to reducing the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Dependent on the fuel used chimneys should be swept accordingly: Smokeless- once a year, bitumous coal- twice a year, wood- quarterly when in use and gas and oil both once a year.
