Chimney Sweeping & Thatched Roofs.

Regular chimney sweeping and inspections are important to protect you, your family and your thatched roof.

“90% of thatch fires are due to a faulty chimney, flue or heating appliance”. Hampshire Fire & Rescue Services.




Journeyman Chimney Services are approved chimney sweeps. We are members of the National Association of Chimney Sweeps. We are approved by the insurance industry to sweep, inspect and test flues and chimneys in thatched properties and issue the insurance industry approved “NACS certificate of chimney sweeping”.

As qualified and competent chimney sweeps we not only sweep the flues in a thatched property we also carry out a thorough internal inspection of the chimney or flue with our CCTV equipment. Further if required we are qualified and approved to carry out a type 1 chimney and flue smoke test to ensure the integrity of the flue way.

Your safety and that of your thatched home is our top priority at Journeyman Chimney Services. We could fill this website page with information and guidance for thatched homeowners but would rather address your questions and concerns directly, please call us to discuss your requirements.
