Chimney Sweeping FAQ’s

Why Do You Need Your Chimney Cleaned Regularly?

Chimneys need to allow a free passage for the gasses and fumes created by fire to escape your property. These gasses and fumes cannot only be dangerous but extremely unpleasant for you and your home. Each time your fireplace is used, soot will accumulate inside of the chimney. Over time this will build up and reduce the size of the flue, limiting the upwards draw of the smoke. This can lead to difficulty in the smoke escaping, meaning the threat of smoke inside your home, damaging health and interiors. In the case of a fire, an insurance company will likely request a certificate to prove you have maintained your chimney correctly. Rance and Broom provide this peace of mind to you.

What Does Chimney Sweeping Do?

Regular chimney sweeping will remove any build-up of soot, birds’ nests, cobwebs and anything else that could block the flue of your chimney. Using highly powerful yet precise chimney cleaning equipment, Rance and Broom will thoroughly clean the inside and outside of the chimney, leaving the chimney running efficiently and your fireplace in a tidy and clean condition.

Can I Clean My Chimney Myself?

Chimneys cannot be cleaned properly with just a household vacuum. The likely result will be a damaged vacuum and a messy living area as these vacuums are not designed to capture such an intense influx of such materials.  They will also only be able to clean the soot that falls from the chimney and not the build up from inside the flue that causes the blockages.  Often there are other items in the flue that will need to be removed carefully which can be dangerous and extremely messy if not handled with care.

How Often Do I Need to Get My Chimney Swept?

Once a year is often enough to have your chimney cleaned for most households who occasionally use their fireplace in the evening or regularly at weekends, with the supplied cleaning certificate being renewed yearly to demonstrate this care.
