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 birds 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 just a few 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 birds' nest or other animals (e.g squirrels) in your chimney.
  • Your fireplace is releasing smoke into the room.

As you may already be aware, 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 house hold insurance on the day.

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).
