Our aim is to ensure that any Solid Fuel burnt in your home or workplace is done so safely and efficiently.  Regular cleaning of your chimney or flue and maintenance of the appliance is necessary to achieve that.  Stuart brings a reliable and friendly service backed up with the latest industry training and equipment to eliminate dust and mess.  Our chimney sweeping service operates from a dedicated Solid Fuel Centre showroom providing extensive knowledge of fuels, appliances, and contacts in the event of problems we can't resolve.

We seal your fireplace opening.  Clean your chimney using power rods.  A HEPA filtered industrial vacuum collects the soot.  After sweeping we put a smoke pellet in the opening to check the draw of the chimney.  A NACS certificate is then issued.  No mess, no fuss!

To Book a Sweep: Visit our contact page and phone the showroom or send us an email.  We'll check the diary, then give you a call back and arrange a date and time suitable to you.  Most sweeps are completed within a week.

Your Safety:  Your stove, flue system, and register/closure plates need to be professionally fitted by a HETAS registered installer or signed off by a Building Inspector.  The chimney or flue system needs to be swept on a regular basis to keep it clear and free from build up of soot or creosote.  This is for your safety, all solid fuels produce carbon monoxide which can and does kill many people in the UK each year.  Please be Carbon Monoxide Aware, check out these reference websites:  HETAS  ;  covictim.org  ;  HSE  ;  Carbon Monoxide Kills (global).

Disclaimers:

  • By law, ABoC are unable to dismantle flue pipes, or move stoves once they have been fitted and reserve the right to not sweep any DIY fitted appliances.
  • Your cowl needs to be securely fitted as the sweeping process may dislodge and knock it off the chimney pot.  Best endeavours will be made to replace but a suitable qualified person may be required to refit or supply and fit a new cowl.  Regardless of cost, a cowl falling off your chimney presents a serious risk to whatever or more importantly whoever it hits.
  • Sweeping is likely to be the process that will identify any flue liner damage.  The result of sweeping is the brush may tangle itself in the liner and unravel it.  There is no alternative but to pull the brush out and have your flue liner replaced.  Unfortunately, ABoC cannot be held responsible for identifying this problem.
  • Since October 2010 it became a requirement of UK Building Regulations to fit a Carbon Monoxide Detector whenever a stove is installed.  ABoC recommend that all appliances have an in-date CMD installed.  These can be provided off van for 21 inc VAT and fitted for a small charge.

 


ABoC are a NACS Approved Chimney Sweep

The National Association of Chimney Sweeps (NACS) formed in 1982 as a professional Trade Association, promoting high standards for the sweeping, inspection and maintenance of chimneys.  With over 500 Members, the NACS is recommended by all major fuel organisations, including the Solid Fuel Association, HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing & Approval Scheme), and OFTEC (Oil Firing Technical Association).  NACS Members work strictly to the NACS Code of Practice 1982 and Code of Conduct for the cleaning of chimneys. On completion of work, NACS Sweeps issue a Certificate of Chimney Sweeping and recommend when future cleaning is necessary.   Read more on the NACS website...
