How much will a chimney sweep cost you? The simple answer is that it depends on the work required.Unlined flues, large inglenooks, nest removal, badly tarred and neglected flues usually require additional and different work to get them safe to use again and are more expensive.
You wouldn't expect a great service on your car if you were quoted a fixed price without it being looked at first, well the same thing applies here. If you are given a fixed price, regardless then you are likely to get a service matched to the price as opposed to the need; buyer beware.
It takes on average 45-60 mins for an annual sweep and clean up so you should allow for this in your timing.
You will be issued with a certificate of sweeping covering each appliance for insurance purposes and warranty issues with stoves and liners, also for when you sell or rent the property.
We also operate a reminder service to help you maintain the frequency of your sweeping. We will contact you at the relevant interval ( depending on your appliance and use) usually by email or text giving you time to make a booking.
Please note that we also send out a text reminder the day before your appointment to your mobile phone. Should you cancel at this point or we are unable to get an answer at the property at the booked time a late cancellation fee will be levied if we are unable to fill the vacant appointment slot.

As a guide the majority of the standard annual sweeps we do cost £60.
Please note that if we arrive and your appliance is in a dangerous condition or cannot be swept due to, for example, poor installation, a flat rate of £60 is charged, if additional work is required (such as CCTV work, dismantling an installation etc) then additional fees may be incurred. We may, at our discretion, offer a discount on a return sweep once the issues have been rectified. Every now and again we recommend stove owners book a full clean and refurbishment to bring the appliance back to an as new condition.
