What's included in your Chimney Sweep?


Chimney Sweeps North East carry out a full power sweep, inspection of your chimney stack/pot as well as checking your stove/fire.


We also do a smoke check at the end of your sweep and provide you with a NACS certificate which can be required for insurance purposes. This details the work we have carried out and is proof that it has been swept correctly. This is all included in the price of your sweep.


My name is Ian Welford and I am a NACS and HETAS Approved Chimney Sweep based in Newcastle upon Tyne.


My customers are in and around the North East including Northumberland, Wearside and County Durham.


Customer service is my priority, having spent 30 years working as a service engineer.  I will never overbook you and leave you waiting for me to arrive.


However sometimes unforeseen problems may arise and whilst all precaustions are taken when making the booking to get there within the agreed time, I will make sure you are kept informed if I am running late.


  • Premium Chimney Sweep Service

  • Using the latest in modern technology to sweep your chimney or flue

  • Layers of protective sheeting laid down before work begins and floor runners used too

  • Professional vacuum used to control dust during the sweeping process

  • NACS Chimney Sweep Certificate issued for all work for insurance purposes


I am not your 'traditional' chimney sweep in the sense that I use brushes.  I use the latest Rodtech and Snaplok power chimney sweeping equipment which is safe for all types of flue and chimney, and gives a more thorough clean.


When I sweep your chimney I make sure the area around your fire or stove is covered with protective dust sheets during the sweeping process. I also use a vacuum whilst I sweep to minimise dust.

The only person I will ever use to sweep our chimney. A true gent and makes NO MESS! which are the reason we use Ian year after year. He attends to our needs and even wears his shoe covers blocks everything up and gets to work.


Thanks once again Ian and see you next year.

Ian provides five star service in customer care and sweeping our chimney.

Very clean workspace and no dust left behind! Very friendly and continuing the traditions of chimney sweeps making a wish as the brush was at the top of the chimney! Really enjoyed the whole experience

Fiona & Koo Setch - November 2018


Ian came to service and carry out some much needed maintenance on our multi fuel stove and also sweep two chimneys. He arrived promptly as agreed when we booked him a couple of months earlier. Ian was an absolute pleasure to deal with right throughout the process. He is a top bloke, very professional, clean and a good at what he does. He did not rush the job and the outcome is fantastic. He also didn’t over charge for work initially quoted over the telephone as certain aspects of the stove were actually alright and not in need of repair or replacing. He could have easily charged us more and I’d have been no wiser!! All in all a top, honest bloke who knows exactly what he is doing!! Would certainly recommend and know who to use in future.
