Dust sheets are used to protect the flooring and nearby by furnishings. Your fireplace or wood burner is sheeted up to stop soot escaping whilst sweeping. After sweeping a smoke pellet is lit to check safe evacuation of flue combustion gases & a certificate of sweeping is issued. This is likely to be required to comply with your home insurance.

Why should I have my chimney cleaned?
Products of combustion require a free passage from the chimney. Birds nests soot/ creosote and blockages are mitigated by regular maintenance. Preventing a potential carbon monoxide build up. Chimney fires are prevented when flammable materials are removed from the flue. The efficiency of an appliances can be increased too. Soot removal from flexible flue liners is just as important as standard masonry chimneys too. Gas and oil appliances need to be maintained as the flues can get bunged up with pet hair and fluff.
