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.

Many thanks to Ian who cleared the chimney for the first time in years. Would happily recommend NE Chimney Sweeps to anyone who needs their chimney attending to. Perfect, professional service, and a good conversation was had too. Full marks from me.

Simon Taylor, January 2018


Excellent, efficient and very clean service from Ian. Huge thanks and fully recommended. Will be using him anually from now on!

Karen Oxley, December 2017


Cannot recommend Ian highly enough. Had our chimney cleaned for the first time today, so had never been visited by a chimney sweep before and didn’t know what to expect. I’m so pleased we found Ian, he’s prompt, friendly, knows his stuff and you would never know he’d called (ie he’s very clean and tidy when working).

If you need a chimney sweep you need Ian in your contacts.
