Chimney Sweep

Our aim is to ensure that any Solid Fuel burnt in your home or workplace is done so safely and efficiently.  Regular cleaning of your chimney or flue and maintenance of the appliance is necessary to achieve that.  Stuart brings a reliable and friendly service backed up with the latest industry training and equipment to eliminate dust and mess.  Our chimney sweeping service operates from a dedicated Solid Fuel Centre providing extensive knowledge of fuels, appliances, and contacts. 

From 2023, we are having to restrict our chimney sweeping service to Newcastle North/East and North Tyneside. Getting across to the West of Newcastle or South of the Tyne can add over 30 minutes to the journey making those sweeps unfeasible.

    How much will it cost?

    Pricing is dependant on your location; time of year; and whether ABOC have swept your chimney before.

    Our local area:

    • Newcastle City, East and North: NE1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 12
    • North Tyneside, all post codes:  NE25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30
    • Existing customers:  £65
    • Summer discount (May to July), less £10 = £55
    • First service charge, if ABOC have never swept before: add £20

        Adjacent to our local area incurs additional travel costs:

        • Summer discount (May to July), less £10 = £65
        • If ABOC have not swept your chimney before, we are unable to offer a service

        Outside of the areas above, we are no longer able to offer a chimney sweeping service.

        A standard sweep takes approximately one hour.  Chimneys that have not been swept within 3 years can take a bit longer.  Should we encounter any problems such as a birds nest or broken components:

        • If longer than one hour, add £12.50 per 15 minutes.
