Why a Summer Sweep is a Good Idea

Sweep up a chimney outside

When it comes to getting their chimney swept, many people wait until the autumn and winter months before arranging an appointment but consider the following benefits of getting it done in the summer:


I’m generally less busy in the summer months, which means it’ll be easier to book an appointment that’s convenient for you. Leaving it until the autumn will mean you’ll have to wait longer, which can be frustrating and may lead to you settling for second best!

Avoid bad smells

Creosote and other debris can accumulate in chimneys that are not swept regularly, which can lead to unpleasant odours. This may be more noticeable in warmer weather, so having a summer sweep can help get rid these bad smells before they become an issue.

Identify problems

A summer sweep will help to spot any problems and allow you time to get them resolved before you need to use your fire or stove and avoid leaving you without your heating source when you really need it.

So you see, there are advantages to having a sweep in the summer!
