Manual Chimney Sweeping
This is carried out with a variety of brush heads to suit different situations, the brush head is connected to rods that are pushed up the chimney and moved back and forth and twisted to carry out the sweeping, we tend to use this system on more delicate masonry chimneys and metal flues.
Rotory Power Chimney Sweeping
This is carried out again with a variety of heads to suit different situations, the brush head is connected to rods that are pushed up the chimney and moved back and forth however the bottom rod is connected to a battery drill that spins the rod and thus spins the head rather than it being twisted manually. In our opinion, this method removes deposits from liners more efficiently and effectively than manual sweeping and this is the system we use whenever possible
Removal of Chimney Blockages
Causes of blockages preventing smoke from going up the chimney or flue can be simple ones such as the incorrect cowl fitted to the top of the chimney pot, often chimneys when not in use are capped off and at a later date, it is decided to start using the chimney again maybe after a change of ownership of the property, at this point the cowl used to cap the chimney off needs to be removed and can be replaced with a suitable cowl. We are able to undertake the fitting of varying types of cowls to suit different situations. Bird’s nests are also a common cause of blockages in chimneys, we are able to undertake the removal of bird’s nests which sometimes can be a lengthy process depending on the size of the nest. Another cause of blockages is due to defective masonry or linings within the chimney, we can investigate this type of blockage by using CCTV and advise accordingly. CCTV inspections and surveys

All operational chimneys at a minimum should be inspected yearly by a certified professional and cleaned as required.
The inspection is necessary to ensure that the chimney is damage free and has adequate draft, is free of debris and cracks, has no loose or missing mortar joints.
