Welcome to the UK’s principal directory of highly trained master chimney sweeps registered in your local residential area
Findachimneysweep is the UK’s foremost directory of local master chimney sweeps available to residents and local businesses. Does your chimney need a professional inspection and sweeping? Is there a Jackdaw or other type of bird’s nest at the top of the chimney? Do you want advice about the use of your fire stove or open fire? It’s easy to find your local sweep in our search directory. All sweeps registered in the Findachimneysweep directory are members of the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps, the premier trade association in the chimney industry.
Your local sweep adheres to the professional aims of the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps. They must follow high industry standards promoted by the Guild and complete intensive training and mentoring courses for both new and existing members. Regular chimney sweeping deters the risk of deadly carbon monoxide poisoning and chimney fires. Guild sweeps are passionate about their work because sweeping protects the lives of customers. You can expect your sweep to inspect your chimney and give impartial advice, sweep the chimney with no mess, give helpful advice on safety, fuels and appliances – plus issue a certificate, which can be useful for household insurance.
The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps was formed more than 20 years ago and we work as a community, supporting each other. As a ‘not-for-profit’ trade association for professional chimney sweeps, we alert government authorities and the wider public about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. We also promote environmentally-friendly and safe use of indoor fires. Charity fundraising and promotion of these issues helps keep us all safer. We join other chimney trade associations in promoting the BurnRight campaign. The Guild also represents the entire chimney sweeping trade internationally at the European Federation of Chimney Sweeps.
