How often should a chimney be swept?

That is depends on how frequently you use your fire and what fuel you’re burning. However, the following is a useful guide:

  • Wood – at least twice a year
  • Smokeless fuels – at least once a year
  • Bituminous coal – at least twice a year
  • Oil and gas – once a year

Do I need to have my gas/oil flues swept?

Yes, you do. Although burning these fuels does not normally deposit soot there are numerous other problems which can affect chimney function and sweeping can solve or identify these.
