The Standard Sweep

Firstly we will assess the chimney stack and pot, we will then take a look inside the property for a visual inspection of the fireplace. This helps us to establish what tools and equipment are required.

We will then place some sheets down in front of the fireplace, this will be our work area. We will layout the tools required and then begin sealing the fireplace to ensure minimal mess.

Once we are ready to go then we will begin the sweeping process. This will be completed to the standard of Sweep Safe.

After we have finished we will then complete our safety checks prior to clearing up.
