When you call Alfred Poppins chimney sweeping not only do we just sweep the chimney we check that the fire is safe for you and your family.

Recently we have been attending jobs with installs that are unsafe and not fit for use. When this is the case we issue a warning notice.

When you choose someone to install your fire, stove or woodburner make sure they are fully trained and hetas registered so that the install complies with building doc J of the housing code.

If it is found not to comply and you have a chimney or house fire then your house insurance provider will not cover you.

If you look in our gallery pictures you will see some examples of fires that have had warning notices issued.
