The time has come to think about booking the chimney sweep.
But.....it's got me thinking having watched the guy give the flue it's first sweep earlier in the year which took all of 5 mins of actual sweeping and 'looked' a doddle compared to when he had to sweep the original chimney. This cost £45.
I know you get piece of mind and a piece of paper that would keep the house insurance people happy but I'm thinking is it worth buying a brush and rods for around the same sort of money and therefore saving dosh in the long run?
If so what size brush for 150mm flue, 6" or 7" and any recommended rods? The outlet pipe from the stove is a swan neck so a double kink.
Worth thinking about it or leave it to the pros?
