What We Do
Chimney Sweeping is an essential part of maintaining your fire. specialising in Stoves and open fires we use the very latest in chimney sweeping technology, sweeping with Rotary power sweeping equipment.
In order to know what is happening in your chimney we now carry CCTV inspection cameras to see exactly what is going on. We utilise the new cameras to gain an accurate picture of any problems in your chimney, such as birds nests, blockages or internal damage.
BIRD NEST REMOVAL
Birds find chimneys an ideal place to set up home, due to the warmth and shelter chimneys provide. However, having birds or other pests in your chimney can lead to dangerous blockages, chimney fires and infestations.
Why does my Chimney need to be swept?
A chimney needs to be swept to stop soot, tar, dust or even cobwebs building up and causing restriction or total blockage. If the flue is restricted or blocked carbon monoxide, smoke and fumes will enter your home with possible serious health consequences and damage to your home. As you use your appliance soot builds up in the flue which if not swept correctly may lead to a chimney fire and at the very least will prevent your appliance from working properly.
Is it messy? Do we cover everything? What do I need to do?
We can guarantee no mess and no fuss. We bring all our own sheets to put on your floor, but all we require is a clear working area in front of the hearth with any ornaments moved to a safe area and clear passage between the door and fireplace.
How often should i have my chimney swept?
We encourage having your chimney swept at least twice a year when burning wood or bituminous house coal and at least once a year when burning smokeless fuels.
