Marple Chimney Sweep working on the doorstep this week
Winter is on the way and many Marple people are getting their chimneys swept in time for the cold weather. It's vital that flues are swept regularly to prevent build up of tar and soot and so increase the danger of a chimney fire or poisoning from fume inhalation.
Woodburners and Multifuel Stoves need their flues sweeping too
I overheard someone say that they did not need to sweep their chimney as it had a wood burner with a liner. This a common view but it's wrong! All flues need to be swept whether it's an open fire or stove.

Stockport Chimney Sweep on home ground today
Chimney sweeping in and around Stockport today. At one house I swept a chimney prior to the installation of a gas fire - I filled 2 bin bags with soot! Often when replacing an appliance people forget to have the chimney swept. This can result in debris continually falling onto the appliance and, in extreme cases, can lead to the blocking of the gas vent resulting in the potential for carbon monoxide poisoning.
Carbon Monoxide poisoning is one of the serious risks of not sweeping a chimney
It always advisable to have your chimney swept whenever you replace an appliance, as well as for routine cleaning. Our Marple Chimney Sweep Service is perfect when you need a Chimney Sweep in Stockport and its surroundings.
Busy time as a Cheshire Chimney Sweep this week
It's a quiet time for chimney sweeping but I carried out a dozen sweeps in and around Cheshire this week. Many people start looking to make modifications and repairs to their property at this time of year. If you are thinking of installing a stove or open fire place - now is a good time to do it. A sealed (or pressure) smoke test is recommended to ensure that the flue is sound (this takes place after the chimney has been swept).

We have our New Mills Chimney Sweep hat on today!
Chimney Sweeping in New Mills today and visiting customers who also take a delivery of logs and coal at the same time. New Mills is not a smoke controlled area so House coal for open fires is fine. However, many customers are not aware that you should not use house coal in your multi fuel stove - smokeless coal only for these appliances.
