You will need to arrange this before the day of your installation, you can use our services, or you can arrange this with a competent sweep who must leave a written report. We charge an additional cost for this service. The flue that the chimney liner will be installed into needs to be sound throughout its length. A chimney liner is only temporary and is designed to last the life of your new appliance. Should it fail for any reason, your existing flue needs to safely contain the products of combustion until the fire in your appliance goes out. A pre-installation sweep is a lot more intense than a normal sweep. This is to make sure that there are no deposits left in your old flue such as tar or nesting material that the new liner could touch and ignite. It’s also to make sure there are no obstructions that will stop or damage the new liner when it is installed. It also helps enable us to see any faults in your flue with the CCTV camera. You will have to bear the cost of any remedial works if they are required such as breaking into the flue to clear a blockage or making good breaches in the flue. Our sweep or installer will quote for this if its within their remit or advise you who can do the works.

Recommended that the room is emptied or everything covered as much as possible.

These preparation guidelines are to help us be as efficient as possible in our work and to make sure everything goes smoothly.

We always lay down a door mat inside the front door to wipe our feet on. We have waterproof floor runners and will make a walkway to your fireplace. If it’s a very wet day you can help by laying a trail of paper or sheets to the fireplace.

The area in front of the fireplace will be covered with a large Hearth Sheet to protect the floor and to give us a good working area. You can help by making sure this area is clear for us to work.

Please remove anything from the mantel and hearth area that will be in our way or is breakable or of value.

We will then bring in the industrial vacuum, so you can help by clearing the way to the fireplace.

Please clear the grate or stove fire box of any unburnt fuel. Its okay to have a fire the night before, but please make sure the fuel has completely burnt through, there should not be any hot coals or smouldering wood left.

When the brush passes through the pot it can take a lot of soot with it, If you have washing on the line, or anything outside that may mark, please move it.

The difference between Traditional & Power Sweeping

Whats the difference? Traditional & Power sweeping.This is an old stainless steel chimney liner that has been cut into sections. Power sweeping will not damage the liner at all, and is approved by chimney liner manufactures

We use Snaplock Power Sweeping System.

Here is a short video of showing the difference between Power Sweeping & Traditional Sweeping. Many people still think that power sweeping will damage a flue where a traditional brush and rod would not.

Watch this and see what you think.

We use both Traditional and Power-sweeping on a daily basis. Both do a very good job and we choose the correct method for your flue to do the best job.

We are HETAS approved for servicing your appliance.
