Your Local Certified Master of Chimney Sweep


As an unregulated industry you may find that many chimney sweeps in your local area are in business with no training whatsoever - they may be unaware of the dangers involved, the advice they need to give you to keep you safe, and are potentially ill-equipped to identify problems that arise.

This is not the case with us, all of our team are fully trained and certified - they have passed a nationally recognised assessment that requires them to show an understanding of chimney cleaning, the dangers of soot, how to spot problems, building regulations, and much more. They have also passed a practical exam that involves cleaning several chimneys in real life situations, illustrating that they can not only clean the chimney properly but do so without leaving a mess in your home – enabling us to not only provide you with an expert service but any advice that you might need for the future upkeep of your chimney.

In the extremely unlikely event that something goes wrong you are always protected by choosing our chimney sweep services. Unfortunately, because of the lack of regulations, it’s not uncommon for chimney sweeps to have either inadequate insurance or none at all - we hear too many stories about people being left to pay for damage done by uninsured chimney sweeps. By choosing us you are guaranteed a safe service, all of our sweepers are required to provide us with copies of their insurance policies before coming on board and working for us.

Something to be aware of is, if you use a sweep who issues their own certificate it will unfortunately be rejected by insurance companies. Our industry standard sweeping certificates are widely recognised and accepted by all insurance companies.

You may be unaware that the chimney sweeping industry is currently unregulated, which makes it hard for chimney owners like yourself to find local, trustworthy providers. The problem is, unless you are an expert in the industry, how do you know the right questions to ask. After all, as our founder Bil Wight says “To obtain the right answer, you need to ask the right question!”

Accidentally choosing the wrong chimney sweep can be frustrating at best and downright dangerous at worst. By scouring the country for chimney sweeps making sure they meet our exacting standards, have the correct documentation, the best possible training and a can-do-attitude, we at Ablewight Chimney Services eliminate the stress and concerns traditionally associated.

As the founder of the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps, when choosing our services, you are guaranteed local certified chimney sweeps who; are certified and trained, have up to date insurances, are associated with industry bodies and can issue insurance valid certification. See full details above.
