CRLA are supporting Chimney Fire Safety Week.

Take this opportunity as a prompt to book your chimney sweep and make sure to keep the Certificate from the sweep in a safe place – just in case you need it.

Advice from the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps is  that some insurance companies will no longer pay out for chimney fire damage unless the flue has been swept and maintained by a professional chimney sweep who can issue a valid certificate of sweeping recognised by the insurance companies themselves.
Also, if the fire brigade is called out due to a chimney fire and it is proven that the chimney has not been maintained the local council can bill you for the call out.
