Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Chimney Sweeping?

The majority of, if not all, houses in Dublin have chimneys above their fireplaces. It doesn’t matter what type of wood you use to keep the fire going, it all eventually builds up and can cause your chimney to start smoking and can also cause severe health issues for your family.

Should All Chimneys Be swept?

Yes, all chimneys need to be swept and kept clean. Your chimney is like a safety hatch to your fireplace; it helps filter out the gasses and fumes in a safe way to prevent them from entering your home. It doesn’t matter if your chimney is stainless steel flue or an open chimney, both need to be consistently kept clean.

When is the Best Time for Chimney Sweep in Dublin?

Keeping your chimney clean should be a top priority if you have one, but when should you get it cleaned or sweep it? If you don’t use it regularly, the answer is at least once a year; this should be just before winter or right after winter. If you frequently use your fireplace, it’s best to have it a chimney sweep service twice a year, once just before winter and once mid-winter. This way, you prevent unnecessary fires and damages to your property and your health.  

How Often Should I do Chimney Cleanings?

The frequency of chimney cleanings depends on the type of wood you use and how often you use your chimney. If you don’t use your fireplace often, you can clean it at least once a year. However, if you use it regularly, you tend to burn more wood and should have your chimney cleaned before winter, then again in the middle of winter

What Are the Standard Requirements for a Chimney in Dublin?

Whether you have a chimney built-in or are refurbishing or repairing an existing one, you need to make sure you use the best material in the market. You also need to make sure your fireplace and chimney are built with the correct dimensions. For example, if your fireplace opening width is 71.12 centimetres, your opening height should be 60.96 centimetres with a depth of 40.64 centimetres.

You also need to consider the rear width of your firebox; the height, minimum chimney height and flue size play a significant role when it comes to safety. Your builder should make sure that these are all aligned. Another factor is the height from your fireplace base to the height of the damper, and from your damper to the start of your flue liner. If this isn’t correct, you’ll have problems in the long run.

Aside from the size and dimensions, you need to get an expert to inspect your chimney at least once a year to check for any damages or build-up. You can use YourPro to help you with all your chimney cleaning needs.

I Have a Gas Burning Fireplace. Do I Still Need a Chimney Sweep?

Definitely! Gas is a relatively clean-burning fuel, and gas fireplaces do not produce creosote. However, there are a slew of additional elements that can wreak havoc on your chimney's performance. Animal nests or other detritus, for example, might clog your chimney. A chimney sweep will check for carbon monoxide leaks, structural concerns, and ventilation difficulties in your gas-burning fireplace and chimney, ensuring that your system is safe to use.

What is Creosote, How Does it Get in The Chimney and Why is it Dangerous?

When there is sooty build-up and creosote in a brick chimney, it should be cleaned. With a considerably thinner build-up on the inside walls, factory-built insert fireplaces can really constitute a hazard. Because even a cord of wood can reach a dangerous degree of combustion, you may need to clean your fireplace once or twice a year.

Even if you don't use your chimney very often, there's always the possibility that animals have built nests in it over the summer, causing an obstruction, or that leaves have accumulated. Although natural gas is cleaner than wood, the fumes produce more water vapor than wood fires. This implies that the chloride-containing gases will condense more, perhaps forming a hydrochloric acid coating on the furnace flues. These systems should be examined, and a chimney sweep service should happen, at least once a year because this is a highly corrosive chemical.

What Could be The Cause of my Chimney Smoking and at When is it Necessary to Approach YourPro?


There are various reasons for a chimney to start smoking. It could be just one, or it could be a combination of causes. YourPro recommends taking action immediately as smoke annihilation can be extremely harmful to you and your family. 

Here are some of the main causes for chimneys to smoke:

  • A blocked chimney: A blocked chimney could happen over time as the smoke, other fumes and gasses build up on the inside of your chimney walls. To prevent this from happening or stopping it altogether, you can get your chimney swept. The chimney sweep will advise you on further steps that need to be taken.  
  • Downdraught: Downdraught is the puffs of smoke pushed back into the room by air that flows down through the chimney. This could be because your chimney stack is too short, or because buildings, trees or other large objects are blocking the wind flow through the chimney. To help with this, you can request your chimney sweep to fit a cowl on top of the chimney. You need to ensure that the cowl is the correct size and fitted correctly; otherwise, it could worsen the problem. 
  • Not enough ventilation: It’s a well-known fact that all fires need air to burn, but too much or too little air could cause problems. If your home doesn’t have proper ventilation, it won’t allow replacement air into the room. This could cause the fire to burn rapidly and cause damage to the fireplace and anything around it. To prevent this, you can simply leave the door open, but that defeats the purpose of the fire. The best option is to get proper ventilation for your home or the room where the fireplace is built. 
  • Cold air in your chimney: If you haven’t used your fireplace in a very long time, the air inside your chimney will get cold. This cold air is heavy, and if your flue doesn’t heat up quickly, the cold air can drag the smoke back into the room. To resolve this, you can burn newspapers. Newspaper burns fast, so it will heat quicker and push the air back up.  

Should I Expect a Mess After the Chimney Sweep Service Have Finished?

We know that when it comes to chimney cleaning, the idea of ash, soot, and dust all over your living room makes you want to postpone your chimney sweep. We are here to tell you that you shouldn't do that. Don't forget that our chimney sweep services consist of professionals who have many years of experience and know-how to do their job the most efficiently and effectively possible. 

After examining your chimney, the chimney sweep will secure the work area and your furniture will be moved away from the working area if the professional thinks it's necessary. To protect your floor, the sweep will place a cloth on the floor in front of the fireplace or woodstove. No-fuss, no mass! 

How Do I Know if I Need a Chimney Repair?

Here are the most common problems that require chimney repair: 
  • Cracks
Due to the fluctuation of the temperature, it causes expansion and contraction both in the chimney and in the fireplace. If you notice cracks in your firebricks or wall, you should contact a specialist to replace your cracked pieces. Do not neglect it, because the crack will slowly grow and the chances of causing great damage to your home increase. 
  • Humidity
During combustion, part of the steam is converted into droplets that sit inside the chimney. In other words, chimneys tend to absorb the moisture generated during combustion. In some cases, it may also be a hole in the lid of your chimney, through which water passes. The result is known stains, even mold, both inside and outside the home. 
  • Smoke
When you light your fireplace, does it kick up smoke? Then you probably need a chimney repair. It is very likely that it is not tall enough, so it does not find the air it needs to drive the smoke out.
