How often should you have your chimney or flue swept?

A lot depends on the type of fuel you are burning.  See the list below:


Smokeless coals: At least once a year


Wood: Once a season when in use


Bitumous [house] coal: Twice a year


Oil: Once a year


Gas: Once a year


Do you have a wood burner?

Many people incorrectly assume that wood burning stoves with a flue or chimney liner do not need to be swept.

This could prove to be a costly mistake.

For safety and efficiency, regular sweeping is essential to remove deposits from the flue that can build up and cause a serious problem.
