Chimney Sweep and Stove service in St Austell, Cornwall

At Charlestown Woodburners And Fires, we offer all customers new or old an extremely professional and affordable chimney sweep service across St Austell, Newquay, Truro and Cornwall area. It doesn’t matter what the size or shape of your chimney is, our skilled and friendly team will take care of it quickly and efficiently.

After we have finished cleaning your chimney, you will have a chimney that is working to keep your home warm and safe.

Birds tend to love chimneys because they are warm, safe and secure. But this doesn’t mean they should be nesting there. Bird’s nests can cause a lot of trouble and issues for your chimney, and they can also cause a lot of mess. Charlestown Woodburners And Fires recommend a yearly check-up for all chimneys. Please also bear in mind that it’s vital to get your chimney regularly swept to keep within your wood-burning stoves warranty.

Smoke Test

It is really important that your chimney is inspected to see if it is drawing clear, and as soon as we have swept,/ cleaned it, our team will include a free smoke test giving you peace of mind knowing it is clear and safe.

The smoke test must only be carried out by trained professionals. Usually, something is burnt at the base of the chimney to establish some kind of a draw on the flue. Alternatively, other specialised equipment may be used to simulate a draw for the flue to bring.

After all, works have been carried out; you will issue you with a certificate. This includes notification of our public insurance, which insures against £2 million.

We feel it is crucial to present absolute transparency to our customers. That is why we will show you the certificate and give you a copy of notification that the work has been finished. Our chimney sweep service is very popular, and recommend all clients have this done on a regular basis. Keeping your chimney clean is an act of responsibility especially if you have a family or young children.

Smokeless coals: At least once a year (Often believed to not need cleaning)

A First Class job… Our hearth and new Fire have been completed today and we are more than happy with the end result. The Fitters were pleasant and easy to work with, nothing was too much bother and NOTHING was rushed. Time, care and expertise taken to ensure a cracking job. Also the showroom staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and again, nothing was too much trouble. A big thank you to everyone, especially the lovely Tracey, great customer skills and a happy smile…. something you don’t always see now-a-days. We would highly recommend Charlestown Woodburners & Fires to anyone.
