Regular cleaning removes soot and helps prevent dangerous chimney fires. Cleaning improves the efficiency of some appliances, saving you money on fuel.
Chimney Smoke Test
A chimney leakage test (also known as a chimney Smoke Test 1) is used to check that the flue will be safe and not leak potentially dangerous gasses into rooms above or an adjacent property.
It can be extremely difficult to diagnose a chimney problem. In the past, you would have had to knock a hole into the chimney, work with a very messy, limited point of access and no guarantee of finding the cause.
If your flue isn’t sufficiently lined, smoke, tar and acids will be absorbed by the chimney walls, leading to the mortar joints losing their stability, your exterior stonework becoming stained and even dangerous fumes leaking into your home.
A stove is a great addition to any hearth; it looks fantastic and is a green way to heat your home efficiently and economically. We offer fireplace and stove installations along with a comprehensive after-sales option.

Level 1 Inspection
Your chimney is quite unlike anything else in your house. It sits there, out of view and never seems to encroach on your daily life. Indeed, it shouldn’t.
Level 2 Inspection
Many chimneys can be hundreds of years old and the property would have undergone many renovations but no one has checked the inside of the chimney.
New Homeowner Inspection
If you have just moved into a property with an existing fireplace, it’s important to have the fireplace and chimney inspected. Even if the previous owners were using the fire, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a potentially dangerous accident waiting to happen!
