London Chimney Sweeps for over 56 years since 1964
Residents of London that are now looking for a Chimney Sweep have many reasons for contacting us. Winter is now on the way and the onset of the colder winter months mean more home owners will be thinking of lighting their fires again. No doubt your stove or fireplace has probably stood empty for most of the year, and so for many this requires preparing the stove or fireplace for use again. Having us stop by to clean the flue and make sure everything is in working order will help to keep your family safe, and ensure a hazard free season. There are several steps that need to be addressed before the fireplace or stove is put into operation for the season.
Summer Chimney & Flue Maintainence
During the off season the fireplace is seldom used. They are often neglected and left vacant during the warmer months of summer. These long periods of dormancy create opportunities for problems to arise. The chimney lining in a London residence may need to be clean, repaired or completely replaced. This an essential internal component of the fireplace system, if there are cracks or leaks present it could create hot spots and problems in other areas of the house. The same can be said about a stove lining in a London home as these heating units serve the same purpose of providing heat to the rest of the house.
Local London Family Firm
Hiring a chimney sweep from the London area will ensure that all the fixtures and features of the heating unit for the establishment are in proper working order and ready for use when the cold weather hits. There are other problems that can arise from leaving the components of the heating device unattended throughout the warmer months. Small animals can build nests that will block the flue. Blockages of this nature can be extremely hazardous. Depending on the material used in the nesting construction fires can erupt rather quickly and cause further damage to the house. Smoke damage can result from a backed up flue causing hazardous and harmful fumes to re-enter the house. If small animals are trapped and die the smell can also seep back into the residence and be difficult to remove.
In older homes where the chimney has been excessively damaged but still intact enough to serve some purpose it may be necessary to hire us as stove fitting specialists in the London area to assist with correcting the problems. Many fireplaces and chimneys are easy to refit with a stove insert. This can often times be a cost effective solution to an aging apparatus such as a chimney. Rather than repair or replace the existing features a resident may elect to install a stove that will fit within the existing structure without needing very much in the form of alteration or modification. Stoves represent the latest in technological advances that are capable of converting an existing fireplace into a more cost efficient heating solution. Several people around the world have already considered and opted for using a conversion kit to have a stove installed in their residence. They will lower the heating bill for the house on an annual basis.

Here’s what our happy customers had to say about our services:
A big thank you to Dole chimney services for fixing my chimney with a new liner, my fire looks fantastic!
I had M.Dole chimney sweeps come and sweep my chimney a few weeks back, very satisfied, great care was taken while performing the sweep, very clean and tidy, no mess left behind! The team was very helpful with any questions or doubts I had or if my chimney was to fail what my options what be, such as getting my flue lined. Luckily enough my chimney passed (determined by the smoke test they also perform). I was also given a certificate to ensure my fire is safe to use for insurance purposes. very satisfied would recommend to all. 5*
Mike Dole did an amazing job for us, he opened up our blocked off fireplace, cleaned & swept the chimney, and then fitted a new Gas fire and lovely stone fireplace. He was recommended to us as someone who is reliable and honest and does a good job. I have to say he was even better than that, as they didn’t get a speck of dirt anywhere and they worked so hard and so fast I was really impressed. I strongly recommend Mike if you need your chimney swept or flue sorted or any fireplace work done.
very happy excellent service provided
Mike Dole and his team swept six chimneys in our Grade II Listed building in EC2 today. A very professional service, excellent job done, would highly recommend.
I have been have trouble for years and smoking the neighbours out but Mike came round to fix the problem with no fuss or mess. Very clean worker, polite and very reliable. Thank you very much
We had M.Dole Chimney Sweeps in today and I am happy to recommend them. The cost of sweeping, testing, assessing and certifying 3 chimneys was £180 (normally £70 per chimney, but discounted to £60 for more than one). M.Dole, the boss, has been in the trade since 1952 and appeared with a fully certificated technician together with an apprentice. The latter has been in position only 4 months and has another 8 months to go before his first accreditation and another 2 year before becoming fully qualified. I have to confess a hankering for such enterprises together with with lack of flannel. Mr Dole was careful and cautious and supervised throughout. Their agreed tasks were: 1. Sweep our 3 chimneys 2. Assess the condition of the flues 3. Test the up-draught 4. Test the design of the flues 5. Carbon monoxide test with smoke kit The team were on site for about 90 minutes. The sweeping process was relatively dust free and the team were careful to restrict this to a minimum. I was invited to view the tell tale site of the brush exiting from each chimney pot (traditionally considered to be a sort of feng shui sign of good fortune). The smoke test involved placing a non hazardous smoke bomb at the base of the chimney and examining how the smoke emitted from the pots. They were looking for smoke coming from more than one chimney: an indicator of breakdown of structural integrity. Fortunately all our chimneys passed the various tests and were issued separate certificates. Insurance companies look to distance themselves from claims when faced with fire damage if chimneys were involved using the “get out” concept of contributory negligence. M.Dole also undertake repair works, fit replacement flues (for failed chimneys) and install fireplaces.
