Advice from Humberside Fire and Rescue Service:
Although there are still some decent days of summer weather ahead (we hope!), it is never too early in the year to think about preparing your chimney for winter.
As part of Chimney Fire Safety Week 2021, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service aims to raise awareness of safe chimney use, including the importance of ensuring that chimneys are swept regularly, are clean and appropriate quality fuel is used.
Chimney sweeping is important. The function of sweeping the flue/chimney is to remove the deposits that build up when the burning of carbon based fuels occur. By sweeping the flue/chimney it ensures that there is a clear and safe passage for the safe exit of combustion products, which are caused by the burning process. This lessens the chances of the chimney catching fire.
Get a sweep booked in now before the usual rush when the weather turns and the dark evenings are upon us!
