Welcome to Tyneside Chimney Sweep

My name is Robert Stephenson and I am a fully qualified and fully insured chimney sweep.  I offer a polite, professional and tidy service.  I am a member of The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps which means I can issue you with an industry standard Certificate of sweeping recognised by all insurance companies.

Why sweep your chimney?

  • To prevent chimney fires
  • To reduce the risk of dangerous fumes including carbon monoxide
  • To burn fuel more efficiently, saving you money
  • To prolong the life of your flue/liner
