Clean sweep alert

Does your home have a chimney?

If it does, it’s important to make sure you and your loved ones stay safe as well as warm! 
One of the ways you can do this is by signing up for our CLEAN SWEEP alert, when we’ll send you a handy email reminder each year, helping you to remember to have your chimney swept and inspected – so it’s safer to use.


Why do I need my chimney swept and checked regularly?

Dirty chimneys can cause fire, endangering life and property. Regularly sweeping and inspecting of chimneys can help prevent blockages, tar build up which can catch alight, smoke leaks, ventilation problems and more. 
If you use an open fire, a wood/log burning stove, Aga or other ‘real flame’ appliance, regular sweeping and checking can help protect your chimneys and your family
You’ll find more information and useful tips on our chimneys and open fires page 

Let’s make a CLEAN SWEEP! 

Sign up now for our free Clean Sweep email alert for home or business ... it’s safe and only takes a few seconds. Look forward to receiving your personal email reminder each summer, giving you plenty of time to have your chimney swept and inspected, ready for the winter months when most chimney fires occur.
