Preparation guide from Milborrow Chimney Sweeps

Your chimney sweep will lay a heavy duty tarpaulin sheet in front of your fireplace and use specially manufactured sweep’s soot cloths to shield the fireplace and retain the soot behind. We will be using state of the art equipment designed specifically for the job in hand and all our sweeps carry a vast variety of power cleaners, brushes, rods and scrapers to deal with all sizes of chimney flues and blockages.
If you have any questions, worries or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

How to prepare for your chimney sweep:
  • Remove all items from the mantel piece and hearth
  • Remove any un-burnt fuel
  • Cover soft furnishings
  • Remove valuable items from the room
  • Lay newspaper or old sheets from the door to the fireplace for the sweeps to walk on
  • If you see the brush emerge from your chimney pot, make a wish
