Service & Price List

Information

I offer a transparent pricing system that I believe is fair and excellent value for money. Every chimney and how it works is different, so I have – as far as possible – provided flat fees so you do not experience any surprises. All prices include sweeping carried out to the National Standard and the issuing of an insurance industry recognised 'Certificate of Sweeping' from The Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps. Please see below for details and my Terms & Conditions.

Chimney Sweeping

These are standard sized flues' serving lined stoves and open fires found in most homes.

 

Lined multi fuel stoves, wood burners and lined/unlined open fires are all catered for. Please see T&Cs below for details on gas fires. Please note that if, during the sweep, we discover a bird’s nest, then its removal is an extra chargeable service.

Chimney Sweeping - Unlined Stoves

These are multi fuel stoves and wood-burners which are typically installed into the original chimney - typically masonry flues - without a liner.

 

The reason it is more expensive than a standard sweep is that gathering the fallen soot is more time-consuming as it has to be taken off the register plate through an access hatch.

From £250.00

Inglenook - Open Fires

Typically the opening to the fire is in excess of six feet. The additional cost reflects the extra time it takes to protect the room from soot and to sweep these larger chimneys.

This includes log burners that are not lined - where the flue pipe terminates just above the closure plate above the log burner - where the original inglenook chimney is swept trough an access door in the closure plate.

Biomass Log & Pellet Boilers

Biomass boiler flues are required to be swept annually for insurance and Renewable Heat Incentive grant purposes. Sweeping needs to be completed prior to the engineer's visit in most cases.

Pre-installation/flue closure sweep

This is necessary before a new appliance is fitted. It ensures the flue is clear of any remaining soot deposits. If a liner is being fitted it confirms both a clear passage and determines the length of the flue.

 

In the event of a flue being closed off, this service helps reduce the risk of damp in the chimney caused by an residual soot deposits in the flue.

Birds Nest Removal

Birds build their nests by dropping twigs and other material down the chimney. In many cases the depth of the nest can be the same as that of the actual chimney. Removing this material can take significant effort and time - typically as long as it would take to sweep four or even more chimneys.

 

All nest removals include a camera inspection to confirm that the flue is clear of debris.

Tar & Creosote Removal

This is a chemical treatment applied to a flue that has large deposits of tar or creosote. Removal of these deposits is essential, as using the flue while in this state can result in a chimney fire. Tar and creosote must also be removed from a chimney prior to fitting a liner.

The price quoted is for standard sized flues serving lined stoves and open fires.

Inglenook fire places are charged at £750.

Gas Fires

Some flues serving gas fires can be swept without moving the appliance. This is usually identifiable by looking up the chimney and being able to see a void. However, if you cannot see a void,  or the opening to the flue is narrow (long and thin like a letterbox) this usually means the appliance needs to be disconnected before gaining access to the flue. This MUST be carried out by a registered gas engineer before we can sweep the chimney. This must be arranged by the customer and is at the customer’s own expense.

Inability to sweep a chinmey

In the event of being unable to sweep an appliance due to access issues, inappropriate installation or other hazards present, we reserve the right to charge a standard £70 sweeping  fee. This will invariably include a camera inspection, bespoke advice on the nature of the fault(s), suggested remedial actions and, where relevant, completion of appropriate documentation.

Missed Appointments

A call out fee of £70 will be payable if, upon arriving at an appointment, we are unable to gain access to the property for any reason. To reschedule or cancel appointments, please call 0794 6707 906 by 6pm the day before.
