Member of the National Association of Chimney Sweeps (NACS)


The National Association of Chimney Sweeps formed in 1982 as a professional trade association with a current membership of over 700 members. NACS promotes high standards for the sweeping, inspection and maintenance of chimneys.


NACS Members work strictly to the NACS Code of Practice © 1982 and Code of Conduct for the cleaning of chimneys. On completion of work, NACS Sweeps issue a Certificate of Chimney Sweeping and recommend when future cleaning is necessary.


NACS Sweeps stock a comprehensive range of different brushes and tools to tackle the vast variety of chimneys, flues and appliances they meet.


It is the National Trade Association in the UK to represent Chimney Sweeps and is exclusively recommended by all major fuel organisations – Solid Fuel Association, HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing & Approval Scheme), British Gas, OFTEC (Oil Firing Technical Association), National Fireplace Association.


After a chimney has been swept, the Chimney Sweep must issue an NACS Certificate of Chimney Sweeping. Should any defects or dangerous occurrences arise, they must be recorded, an NACS Warning Notice and label be issued, and records kept.
