Winter has found its way to Stockport this week
Winter is getting under way after a short late warm spell. Now is a great time to get your chimney swept in time for the winter. I have swept a few chimneys in Stockport this week where a poorly fitted stove has caused problems with access. In two chimneys there was no means of accessing the flue to clean the deposits off the plate and on one occasion the chimney could not be swept at all.
A professional chimney sweep can alert you to hidden dangers!
A poorly fitted stove may not only be dangerous but can be very expensive as it usually has to be completely refitted. If there is a fire in your property caused by a faulty or poorly fitted appliance you may not be covered by insurance!
