Manchester Sweeps

Chimney Sweeping across the Manchester Region

Manchester Chimey SweepA full day chimney sweeping in Manchester this week. I carried out three chimney sweeps in Chorlton, two in Didsbury and one in Sale. One problem came about where a flexible liner had not been correctly fitted to the stove pipe. As no inspection hatch had been fitted it was impossible to fix the problem without removing the register plate.

We will always refer problems to a qualified HETAS fitter for you

I referred the problem to a HETAS fitter who sorted it out and ensured that the stove was working effectively and safely. Part of the problem with some installations is that they have been undertaken by someone who is not qualified or experienced. A common problem with many installations that are not lined is that no sweep hatch has been provided - making sweeping impossible.

We will always provide advice on any problem we encounter whilst sweeping chimneys in Manchester and refer to our HETAS colleagues to remedy an installation problem whenever necessary.

The Stockport Sweep

A busy month for Chimney Sweeping in the Stockport Area

Stockport Chimney SweepOctober has been a very busy month for chimney sweeping in the Stockport area. Some of the problems I have encountered with poorly fitted stoves include: Lack of soot hatch to remove debris from the register plate, lack of proper finishing and seals around pipe outlets, lack of the correct bird guard or cowl. All of these issues can lead to reduced efficiency at best and escape of poisonous gasses at worse. I always offer advice if  see a problem and can refer to a qualified HETAS fitter where necessary to refit an appliance or carry out other essential safety work. This month's chimney sweeping has taken me across the Stockport, Marple, and East Cheshire areas.

Our Marple Chimney Sweep Service is perfect when you need a Chimney Sweep in Stockport as the winter draws in.

Chimney sweeping in Mellor

Stockport Chimney Sweep busy in Mellor, New Mills and Marple this week

It is now getting busy and I have been out sweeping chimneys across the Mellor, New Mills and Marple areas this week. A couple of common issue arose: I swept the chimneys for a couple who have recently purchased a house in Marple. I did all four chimneys including 2 disused chimneys in the bedrooms.

You should have all chimneys swept when moving home for peace of mind

Stockport Chimney SweepOften when people move into a house they will only have the main flue swept but it is important to sweep all accessible chimneys when moving into a house - the reason being that damp can build up in a flue that is not correctly ventilated and also the chimney, although not in use, may still be full of soot or birds nest because it has not been swept before it was stopped being used (this may have been many years ago). Once these flues are swept I then advised the customer about proper ventilation and a cap for the chimneys not in use. When purchasing a house I would always advise the customer to arrange for all flues to be swept and a proper certificate prepared for their insurance.
