    Brush works great. My flue is about 7 metres with a bend, amazingly the handle/extension shaft that can roll up to a 500mm diameter coil, is stiff enough to push all the way to to fire box. No more worry of flue fire.

    My dealings with Busy Bee have been great. I ordered via phone as I had a number of questions to ask. Andrea was more than helpful and answered questions I didn’t even know needed asking. The product arrived here in Qld very promptly and even included a couple of complimentary items. The product itself is excellent. All highly recommended.

    I purchased a double story flue kit as we have 12m ceilings and then a large roof cavity. Our flue had not been cleaned for 28 years and we were woken up by the smoke alarm 10 days ago. The kit was fairly easy to put together and clean the flue and now our fire is working and drawing beautifully (just like new). Great to have our own kit as will be doing it more regularly. Busy Bee were great to deal with, the flue cleaning kit is very good quality and delivery was very prompt. Thanks very much.

    These flue brushes (6″ and 8″) worked well and cleaned the flues in minutes. I was unsure about size to buy (whether the brushes needed to be oversized at all) but the advice was not so – a 6″ diameter brush cleans a 6″ flue. I needed an 18′ length, and the flexible shaft is about the right stiffness to be able to get into confined spaces and also go around corners in the flue – one of my flues was on an old wood oven so a little easy dismantling of the damper allowed access. The product was at least as good as described and arrived promptly

    Great kit. Thought I’d try it out from the bottom up. Worked well and meant that I didn’t have to get on the roof again. The flexible rod works well and allowed me to clean through a couple of 45 degree bends from. I almost look forward to cleaning the flue next time.

    Product works well. We used it from the bottom up so we don’t have to get up on the roof and it was easy to use and flexible. Thank you, Andrea, for your help.

    We recently purchased a Flexi Flue kit and found the whole process (including the actual cleaning) so easy. The online purchase was simple, the service delivery as fast as we’ve ever experienced and most importantly, the product is extremely efficient and of a quality that will last for years. Thank you also for the extra items.

    I opened the box in the morning before work and decided to give it a go as we hadn’t used the fire for a few days. I expected to be running late but I had the chimney swept in less than 15 minutes including tidy up. All safely from inside the house without needing to go on the roof! The fire is drawing much better, clearly needed a clean.
    Very worthwhile investment.

I need to do cleaning from the bottom up. The flue hole is quite a long way back in the woodheater. Will the nylon tube accommodate this kind of bending, to clean from the bottom up?

The Flexi Flue brush Kit is designed to clean from the bottom up.  The Nylon rod is strong but flexible and can handle up to 2 x 45 degree bends.   Perhaps you could estimate what the angle would be for you to thread the rod up into the back of the woodheater ie. What is the width and height to the back of the woodheater?  That would give you an idea.

You will need to remove the baffle plate to access the opening of the flue. Cleaning from the bottom up can be a bit messier, so be on hand with a vacuum cleaner to suck up any soot that overflows from the heater.  Some of our customers tape a heavy duty plastic sheet over the front of the woodheater and thread the rod through a hole in the sheet.  This would stop much of the creosote and soot overflow.

What size flue brush do I need?

For the best clean, choose a Flue Brush Head the same size as the inside diameter of your Flue. a Flue Brush head that is too small will be ineffective; too large may damage the joins and rivets in your Flue.

Can I use a Flexi Flue Kit from the roof down?

Yes, any of our flue kits can be used from the roof.


I have two 45° bends. What is the best way to clean my flue?

Our Flexi Flue Brush Kit can handle up to 2 x 45-degree angles in the flue.  Take care to not force the brush, as this may dislodge sections of the Flue.  If unsure, obtain some advice from your local Chimney Sweep professional, or a Flue Installation specialist.  Alternatively, using our Flexi Flue Brush Kit, you can clean one bend from the roof and the other from the ground.


I have a double storey home with high ceilings, what is the best way to clean my Flue?

When you have more than a 21ft (6.3m) Flue to clean, it might be an idea to consult with a Chimney Sweep professional or Flue Installation specialist to consider whether a “port” could be installed into the Flue.  This would allow you to insert your Flue Cleaning Brush and Rod half way up the Flue. You can then clean downwards and then upwards, with less length to cover.

I have a number of bends in my Flue, including one with a 90-degree bend, what is the best way to clean my Flue?

We recommend you consult with a Chimney Sweep professional or Flue Installation specialist to consider whether a “port” could be installed into the Flue so that you could gain access to the area within the 90-degree bend.
