Will the Chimney Sweep leave a mess?

No mess at all! We use walking mats that cover your floor from front door through to where the fire is located, we also sheet up in front of the fire. We use a sponge blocking system too for maximum cleanliness.  Please see our testimonials to how clean we really are!
