Why do I need my flue/chimney swept and how often?
first reason is safety!
We highly recommend annual sweeps and
inspections to clear soot and creosote which causes blockages, removal of
birdnests and check for any repairs/replacement parts that are
necessary to use your fire cleanly and efficiently.
We recommend that
you have this done yearly (sometimes more often depending on usage).
The best time is at the beginning of the year or at the end of the
season as between the months of March to August there is a huge demand
to have chimneys swept and inspected.
Avoid the rush and be prepared.
Most Insurance Companies now require you to have your chimney/flue serviced annually by a trained professional.
the current Work Safe Regulations Health & Safety Act a harness
and/or edge protection or scaffolding must be used for safe roof access.
Our policy is to sweep chimneys/flues internally (from the bottom up)
whenever possible to reduce the risk of personal injury and minimise the
costs to our clients.
If however, we are unable to clean your flue from the bottom up then we will advise of the additional charges necessary for safe roof access.
payment is required onsite once the job is completed.
only be by prior arrangement with our office.
A GST Receipt will be issued on payment.
you need to change your scheduled booking please let us know at least
24 hours beforehand.
Changes or cancellations made on the day may incur
charges if we are unable to fill your space.
A call-out fee of $30 + gst will be charged if you are not home for a scheduled appointment (travel costs will also be charged if you are located out of town).
Be prepared and arrange for your chimney/flue swept and inspected early in the year to avoid the mad winter rush. You will then be all set to enjoy the warmth and have your fireplace ready to heat your home for the cooler months.
sure you have working smoke alarms installed throughout your house.
If you have a chimney fire damper your firebox down via the air controller then dial 111.
