Paul Adams - Chimney Sweep in Reading - Berkshire & North Hampshire.


Regular sweeping of your chimney is essential for the prevention of chimney fires and also to reduce the risk of dangerous fume emissions from blocked heating apparatus, flue-ways and chimneys.

We help homeowners and landlords ensure that built-up soot from coal, wood, oil and gas-fired systems is removed from the chimney, along with any other obstructions such as birds nests, etc.

Traditional Chimney Sweeping

Traditional process with brushes manually inserted through the chimney.

Rotary Power Sweeping

A mechanical chimney sweeping process using rotary brushes.

Soot Vacuum Sweeping

A cleaning method we use after sweeping for clearing up the soot and dust.

Clean, Quick & Efficient

When we attend your home, we use a runner from the front door to the room where the fireplace is being swept to keep your property as clean and tidy as possible. We will need a 13 Amp plug socket for the the vacuum, but our chimney sweeping methods leave very little dust.

Gas Fires

We do work on gas fire flues, but you will require a qualified gas engineer to disconnect and reconnect the gas before and after the flue sweeping.


We sweep stoves, including Range cookers, Aga Cookers, Rayburns and all types of wood-burners.

Birds Nests

We will remove all birds nests, including the twigs and debris. However, we can not remove birds nests in the breeding season (early March to late July) if there are eggs in the nest, as they are protected.

Weddings – Lucky Chimney Sweep

We can attend weddings on request for a traditional ‘lucky charm’ for the newly weds. The tradition is that a Chimney Sweep will bring the new couple luck.
