a wide range of chimney and stove services
Chimneys and flues can ONLY be cleaned using a brush or scraper of some description - using a vacuum alone will not do the job.
We use a vacuum purely to collect the soot that our brushes remove from your chimney. Soot particles can be extremely small, and may pass straight through many standard vacuum filters, and as soot is classed as carcinogenic (cancer causing), it is not the sort of thing you want blowing around in your home. For this reason, we use a high powered industrial vacuum designed specifically for chimney work, and fitted with two motors and a HEPA filter system, which makes sure that ALL the soot we collect from your chimney ends up in the bin rather than floating around in your home. Soot resulting from domestic chimney sweeping can be disposed of with your normal household waste collection.
You don't necessarily have to be at home for our visit - we are happy to collect a key from a neighbour if you are happy to leave one, and we will contact you once the job is complete if we've come across any problems.
