When you use your stove you will find that over a period of time soot and tar deposits can begin to build up on the inside of the flue. This could become a fire hazard and should be removed by regularly sweeping the flue.

 

We advise that you use a qualified Chimney Sweep to check and sweep your flue. They will also be able to spot any potential problems with your stove or flue and advise accordingly.

The frequency of sweeping depends on the efficiency of your stove and the quality of the fuel used. As a guide the flue should be swept at least once a year if burning good quality wood and every 3 months if using solid fuel.

 

In general if you burn wet logs or poor quality wood your flue will need to be swept as often as every 3 months. If you are burning kiln dried logs, then once a year is usually enough.
