Sussex Eco Solutions, based in sussex,  offer fully qualified sweeping and wood burning stove servicing.  It is highly recommended that you sweep your stove and chimney, whether it is an open fire or housing a metal flue, at least once a year, or twice a year if you use it more often.

Due to the nature of wood burning stoves, smoke and residue can linger around the chimney, especially if you slumber the stove- with little air going through.  As a result, regular slumbering can cause the flue to become blocked in extreme cases.

Sussex Eco Solutions are a NACS (National Association of Chimney Sweeps) qualified members.  Our sweep is highly trained, along with being a fully qualified HETAS engineer.  We opt to power sweep a chimney with the Rodtech system. NACS-Member-logo-1

When power sweeping the brush head through centrifugal force expands to suite the flue you are sweeping it also centres itself, therefore you do not require a vast range of brushes. Because it is not a traditional brush there is no surface tension being created in the sweeping process as the head adjusts to fit the flue. You adjust the force of the sweeping action by increasing the speed of the drill this has the effect of stiffening the brushing action. So if you are doing an older style chimney then you would use a low speed however if you are doing a heavily built up clay / steel flue then you can up the speed giving you an unbelievable cleaning action. Also the action of sweeping clockwise positions the head to the right hand side when sweeping a larger type chimney likewise reverse the drill and you then sweep the left side. In short you clean chimneys more effectively causing less strain on the structure of the flue and making lighter work for yourself.

After the chimney has been cleaned, a NACS certificate is issued along with any recommendations that has become apparent during the sweep.
