A standard procedure after your chimney/flue has been swept. I need to ensure your chimney is functioning correctly before we leave.
By checking visually with a purpose made smoke pellet, I can check the smoke & harmful fumes are evacuating the appliance via your chimney & not filling your home!
It can also identify many faults the chimney/flue/pots may have.
Please note: This is not a smoke test.
Is your chimney pot looking a little worse for wear or even broken?
Has your flaunching degraded and letting water into your chimney?
I can supply and fit a wide range of chimney pots and also remove & re-flaunch existing pots.
Call or email me for free advice and quotations.
From time to time we sometimes look up at chimneys & see birds sitting on the pots. Well.. This is what they are most likely up to!
Jackdaws are the usual suspects for creating nests.
If you notice a twig or two in your fireplace that have just magically appeared, you'd be wise to contact me.
I can efficiently remove the nest and advise you how to prevent it happening again.
Please note: By law, I am unable to remove bird nests in the breeding season (April to September) as the eggs/chicks are protected.
