About London Chimney Sweep

We are 4th generation, family-run chimney sweeping business, a one-man operation continuing 125 years of knowledge and legacy. 

We service and clean anthracite heaters, and open and closed fireplaces. 

We use old-school brushes and experience to get tricky jobs done. If the chimney can't be swept due to structural damage, we will refer you to the right person to get it fixed. 

We do not do any installations of fireplaces, please see agencies page for more info.

We operate from:

In SEASON:         1 March -30 September (regular maintenance & cleaning)

Out SEASON:      1 October-29 February  (selected work only)

We service heaters in:
