How The Chimney Sweeping Process Works

Step One

The appliance is sealed to help prevent soot from escaping out into the room. Here, a foam seal is being inserted into the stove.

Step Two

Using a power drill and highly flexible rods, the power brushing begins.

Step 3

Power brushing removes much more of the soot deposits from the chimney than manual brushing, but is not suitable in every case.

Step 4

When the chimney has been swept, the soot is then removed from the appliance both manually…

Step 5

…and with a high pressure vacuum cleaner.  Any remaining soot deposits around the appliance are also removed with the vacuum.


a smoke evacuation test is carried out to ensure the chimney is free from any blockages. And an external check to confirm smoke is flowing freely.
