If you are a landlord there is a legal requirement, similar to annual gas safety checks, to have all chimneys swept and certified. According to 'Avon Fire & Rescue Service' there are on average 12,000 chimney fires every year! In the event of a chimney fire, most insurance companies will not pay out and the local council can choose to bill you for the expense of the fire services attending; unless you can provide valid and recognised certification that you have had the chimney swept by a professional.
Smokeless fuel, Oil and Gas (if the gas fire is designed to be swept) = Once a year.
Coal = twice a year.
Wood = every three months whilst in use.

“One of the main reasons a chimney catches fire is because of a build up of debris inside."
Top tips for preventing a chimney fire include:
• Don’t use flammable liquids like petrol or paraffin to light your fire. • Don’t burn paper or rubbish. • Don’t overload the fire with fuel. • Occasionally go into the loft when the fire is lit and check for any smoke coming out of cracks, defective brickwork or mortar joints.
