The build up of deposits depends on the construction and type of chimney, the quality of the fuel and how often the stove/fire is used.
We recommend regular chimney sweeping (at least once a year) as it is benefical to the efficiency of your stove/fire. Tar, soot and deposits in a chimney may reduce the draw. This will
make the stove run poorly as it will become more difficult to light and burn less efficiently. Most importantly, keeping your chimney clear reduces the risk of chimney fires.
Our stove maintenance service includes cleaning the stove, sweeping the chimney and a safety check ensuring the stove is functioning safely and efficiently.
