When we find ourselves in May we turn our thoughts to two things…summer prices (coming soon in a separate blog post) and the need to call on the local chimney sweep. If you have an open fire or burn solid fuel in your multifuel stove then this is something you too should be thinking about it. Although we did consider a fire tonight (isn’t it a bit chilly?) recently our fireplace has seen little action! This is the perfect time to give your chimney some TLC.
So why should you get your chimney swept? Quite simply for safety! Sadly there are many chimney fires each year caused by unswept chimneys. If you burn wood you are at a greater risk.
So as responsible solid fuel burners the call has been made, the appointment booked. In a few weeks we will blog on the visit from the sweep!Share post
