Chimney Sweeping London | FAQ

“I have just moved to London and I have a working fireplace. Does it need cleaning?”
We highly recommend you arrange for your chimney to be swept when first moving into a new property, as a chimney fire is not the best of housewarming and can be costly to repair.

“Why do I need my chimney cleaned/swept?”
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, as well as ensuring birds nests, cobwebs, and other potential blockages are out of the way.

“Embers are a member of the Guild of Master Sweeps. What does this mean? Is it important?”
Absolutely. Guild sweeps undertake an extensive training and assessment process. Training is based around the most comprehensive training manual in the UK. With this in mind, we are fully insured and equipped to deal with a range of situations, fittings, and services, and should always be able to provide you with top notch satisfactory service.

Put Mary Poppins style mayhem out of your mind! Our London chimney sweeps are trained in top quality servicing for your chimney, and have tried and tested techniques to ensure that minimal (of any) dust escapes dirtying your home.
