‘Canary in the Coalmine’ – Carbon Monoxide Awareness

    ‘Canary in the Coalmine’ – Carbon Monoxide Awareness

    The Guild has been working with the Federation of British Chimney Sweeps to promote Carbon Monoxide issues. We are producing tools and resources to help our whole industry to promote the issue to their customers.

    Here is a useful consumer video to share on your website or social media etc.  Below the video you’ll find some sample text you might use to accompany it.

    Carbon monoxide is the invisible killer.

    More than 50 people die per year on average in the UK from CO poisoning and some of these are from real fires. Do you have working CO alarms?
    Proper installation, operation, and maintenance of solid fuel-burning appliances will reduce any risk of Carbon Monoxide poisoning.

    Please ensure appliances are installed and operated according to regulations and the manufacturer’s instructions.  Your local professional chimney sweep is here to help. Have your open fire, wood burning stove, or solid fuel heating system checked and swept every year.

    Protect you and your family! ………Get it swept!
