How to sweep a chimney

One of the dirtiest D.i.y. jobs you can undertake is cleaning your chimney flue. That is why most people will employ a professional chimney sweep to do the job for them. However, you can do it yourself if you know what you’re doing and save yourself a bit of money.

A regular clean will ensure that your chimney will stay clean and efficient, but chimneys that are old and haven’t been cleaned in a long time can contain a huge amount of soot, so in these cases we recommend you get a professional in to do the job.
