Chimney Sweeping

We provide chimney sweeping services in Nelson, Lancashire and the surrounding areas.


Chimney Sweeping Service

In order to maintain safe functionality of any fuel burning appliance, regular sweeping must be carried out, whether burning wood, coal, gas, oil, smokeless fuel, peat or any other fuel. Depending on what fuel you burn, the time between sweeps can vary. As a guide, your chimney should be swept on a quarterley basis when in use. Along with soot removal, regular chimney sweeping provides piece of mind by assuring no blockages or part blockages are obstructing the chimney such as vermin nests and cobwebs – as well as ensuring adequate draw and ventilation. Also, smoke testing the chimney should also be undertaken, making sure no nasty fumes make it anywhere they shouldn’t. We are HETAS registered and cover Nelson, Lancashire and the surrounding areas.

Sweeping Certificates

You can rest assured you are hiring a company that will get the job done professionally with Pendle Heritage Stoves. Also, many insurance companies require a sweeping certificate for your insurance to remain valid. We provide insurance approved sweeping certificates after each sweep and are HETAS registered, which may also be required for maintaining a stove, liner or chimney system warranty. In addition, if you don’t already get your chimney professionally swept regularly, you increase the risk of dangerous fumes, such as carbon monoxide, and house and chimney fires. For more information for how frequently you should get your chimney swept, please contact us for more information.
