Professional chimney sweep and consultant


Welcome to the website of Gary the Chimney Sweep!


I am an independent, experienced chimney sweep and I pride myself on offering a clean, reliable and honest service. If your chimney is ready for a routine sweep or if your chimney is causing you any difficulties - I have the expertise and experience to deal with the task. I am able to locate the cause and solve any chimney or fireplace issue effectively, from bird's nest removal to smoke leakages. I also carry out a smoke test at the end of each visit, to ensure the job's been done to the highest of standards that I strive to maintain.

Do I need a chimney sweep?


A poorly kept chimney can be hazardous to your health. Here are some of the many signs that your chimney is due a sweep:-


  • Your chimney is dropping soot or mortar into the fire place - this is a sign the chimney needs a sweep.
  • You suspect that there may be a bird's nest or other animals (e.g. squirrels) in your chimney.
  • Your fireplace is releasing smoke into the room.


You need a certificate for home insurance purposes, to show that your chimney is being maintained to an acceptable standard. As a qualified, professional chimney sweep, I will sweep and smoke test the chimney and issue a certificate for the household insurance after the work is completed.

The areas I work in are: Brighton, Hove, Hassocks, Lancing, Eastbourne, Portslade, Worthing, Arundel, Shoreham, Seaford, Horsham, Crawley, Hailsham, Lewes, Shoreham By Sea, Henfield, Billingshurst, Petworth, Hurstpierpoint, Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath,  Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Sevenoaks (click here for all areas covered).
