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.

Chimney was swept and smoke-test completed. 

Ian was extremely courteous, diligent and ensured that the process was carried out with minimal mess or disruption. He explained the process and was very thorough.

I use Chimney Sweeps North East every year for my annual sweep. This was the regular, yearly visit from Ian.  Ian swept the chimney without creating any mess (not an easy task) and advised me on possible improvements to my system (flu liner etc). I cannot praise Ian highly enough. I have found him to be highly professional as well as being a thoroughly nice person. Highly recommended for anyone requiring his services.
