Getting your chimney swept is an important part of chimney maintenance, especially if burning wood because of the soot and tar that can accumulate inside the chimney flue Failing to sweep chimneys can cause dangerous situations such as carbon monoxide if fumes from burnt fuel can't escape or soot build up inside the flue catching fire resulting in chimney fires. Industrial and domestic chimney sweeping in Cheshunt can be completed using either flexible rods and brushes or vacuum cleaners, often fitted with industrial filters to keep small particles of soot contained in the vacuum chamber.
