Hi, I'm looking for a chimney sweep. I heard that Log on Tommy is a good that also gives a certificate on completion? Does anyone know of him or some other person I could contact? 

I have a old log burner that needs doing. I live above Las Pocicas 

Thanks 

Mal

I bought my own brush & rods, very reasonable.

I’m not saying I’m as good as a professional, but I can sweep my chimney as often as I like, and when I like

Thanks for the reply. Something I need to consider,  I'm also thinking of the insurance which someone told me can have an impact on the policy if your unfortunate to have a chimney fire.

Thank

Hi Mal, in the 20+ years I’ve been here, I never heard of a log burner chimney fire!

My friend is an insurance agent in Albox, whilst in town this morning told him what you’d been told about insurance, “nonsense” he said, and he told me that the only ‘chimney fire claim’ he’d heard about was not a metal chimney, but a brick one in an old house, and the claim was successful

Chimney fires are very common. I don't have figures for Spain but over 2500 a year in the UK. It doesn't matter if it is an old brick Chimney or a steel prefabricated flue, it's the excess soot that catches fire, not the material that the flue is made of. It is possible to sweep your own Chimney. I don't know about insurance in Spain but I do know insurance companies worldwide will try and get out of paying a claim if possible. My advice is try your best to get a professional sweep.

I think mine came from Long's, but I think most good ferreterias will have them.
