Services & Price List
We offer a transparent pricing system that we believe is fair and excellent value for money. Every chimney and how it works is different, so we 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 our Terms & Conditions.
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 (see below).
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.
Inglenook (Large) Open Fires
There are (thankfully) many of these magnificent fireplaces still in regular use. 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.
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
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 cause a chimney fire. Tar and creosote must also be removed before fitting a liner.
