The Benefits of Having Your Chimney Swept

In the UK, chimneys and fireplaces can be found inside the majority of the homes as coal fuelled fires were necessary for all aspects of life. With modern technology and the introduction of electricity in the households, chimneys tend to be reserved for a winter heating effect only as we no longer require them for cooking and bathing. Regardless of this, the team here at Pearson Sweep have put together a list of benefits of having your chimney swept…

  • Having a clean chimney means that it will work much more efficiently in the long run compared to trying to use a dirty chimney. A chimney which hasn’t had all the build up inside removed means that all the smoke won’t be filtered out of your home, leaving some behind and thus causing a potential health risk.

 

  • As we mentioned briefly above, the main role of a chimney is to remove unwanted gases and smoke out of your home which are let off from the fuel you burn. Allowing creosote to build up on the walls very thickly can cause them to become flammable which poses the risk of a protentional chimney fire.

 

  • A clean chimney means that it will be very safe to use for much longer and its working life will be increased as a professional is more likely to spot any issues with your chimney before they become unsolvable.

Having you chimney swept should be done at least once a year at the minimum in order to ensure that the health of individuals and pets is looked after. Get in contact with the best chimney sweep Manchester to find out more information!
