Established in 1895, we pride ourselves on offering a service based on our core values of reliability, cleanliness and exceptional standards
We provide a professional, fully insured chimney sweeping service for all types of chimney, using brushes and a vacuum to keep your property as clean when we leave as it was when we arrived.
Our network of sweeps operate in their local communities from Whitley Bay to West Sussex, and are fully trained to handle:
Wood burning stoves
We also provide a range of related services such as fitting cages, caps & cowls and removing nests & other blockages. In addition, we can supply you with carbon monoxide alarms and other high-quality products.
It is important to have your chimneys swept regularly (at least annually) to remove soot and other debris. This helps keep you protected from potential chimney fires and ensures that you comply with the conditions of your buildings insurance. We issue certificates of sweeping after we complete a job.
All Wilkins Chimney Sweeps are police checked and comprehensively trained, including Ladder Association training in the safe use of ladders and ladder placement. We work to the codes of conduct and practice stipulated by our industry body, APICS (Association of Professional Independent Chimney Sweeps).
