I'm Pete and Van Dyke Chimney Sweeps is just me.  I'm a Brighton chimney sweep.


My goal is simple - to make sure the fires and stoves I work with are safe, clean and efficient so my customers are free to enjoy them.


As a trusted chimney professional your flue and fireplace/stove will be inspected in line with best practice and a sweep certificate issued recognised by all UK household insurers.

Annual or biannual chimney sweeps make up the majority of my work.  These include inspecting the chimney and the fireplace or stove and issuing a certificate of sweeping. However, I also perform camera inspections using the latest flue camera technology and provide a copy of the video to you, my customer.  And inevitably a Brighton chimney sweep will spend much of their time on bird nest removals. While bird nest removal can be labour intensive, it is all part of the job for a Sussex chimney sweep.

But I do more than sweep chimneys in Sussex.  To help get the best out of your fire I take the time to talk with you.  Where the fire cement in the stove pipe joints has degraded, I'll reseal them with new fire cement.  And it's not just the flue that is cleaned.  Where necessary I'll give your stove a clean, including the glass, as part of my service.

For me it’s about the whole package.  The chimney sweeping, the advice and the service is all part of the job.

So if you are you looking for a professional and friendly Brighton chimney sweep to keep your chimney clean and safe so you can sit back and enjoy your fire, or you want advice on how to get the best out of your stove, wood-burner or open fire, then give me a call. 


It doesn't matter if you need a chimney sweep in Hassocks or Hove, Brighton or Burgess Hill, Lewes or Lancing, Shoreham or Seaford, Worthing or Woodingdean, Van Dyke Chimney Sweeps have got you covered!
