General Safety

Clean chimneys don’t catch fire. Make sure you have your solid fuel appliance inspected and your chimney cleaned by a professional chimney sweep like John Read.

Your sweep may have other maintenance recommendations depending on how you use your fireplace or appliance.

Sweeping frequency:

  • Smokeless coals: At least once a year
  • Wood: Once a season when in use
  • Bitumous coal: Twice a year
  • Oil: Once a year
  • Gas: Once a year
