We believe in being open, honest and offering a transparent pricing system which is both fair and excellent value for money.
Every chimney, and how it works, is different so we’ve tried – as far as possible – to provide flat fees meaning there’s no nasty surprises.
Please see below for details as well as Terms & Conditions:
* Please note standard sweeping does not include removal of nests, wildlife and other blockages from a chimney. See below for prices and other T&Cs*
Specialist Removal Services
- Nest removal From 150€
Due to nest composition varying dramatically, the time it takes to remove such a blockage will vary. As such, should the blockage take more than an hour to remove, additional time will be charged at a rate of 30€ per half hour. A CCTV inspection of the flue will be conducted to guarantee the removal of the nest or any other debris before certification is issued.
- Chemical Treatment tar removal From 395€
This is a 2 week chemical treatment applied to a flue which has stubborn deposits of tar. Removal of these deposits is essential as using the flue while in this state can lead to a chimney fire.
- Débistrage From 310€
The Mechanical Removal of ancient and stubborn Tar Deposits. Any case of a chimney having a liner installed inside it should first go through the débistrage process.
- New homeowner Inspection service 150€
Our new Homeowner Inspection Service is designed for those who have recently moved into a property and who do not have any paperwork relating to the fireplace. Learn more about your fireplace and don't risk ‘leaving it to chance’.
- Internal Video Inspection 70€
Using our Internal Video Camera, we are able to view the condition of your chimney/installation, asses the level of debris build up and confirm everything is as it should be from the inside of your Chimney. This service is included as part of our standard sweeping.
- Drone Survey 55€
Surveying the condition of the Chimney Stack or for any appropriate function whilst on site. Please note: Drone Surveys are weather dependant and are a supplementary service for sweeping appointments.
- Type 2 Smoke Test 10€
To conduct a type 2 smoke test, we first heat the flue to establish a draw in the chimney before lighting smoke pellets and monitoring the smoke as it passes through the evacuation system.
Having the correct products to get the most out of your stove and keep it running efficiently is important. Although we do not stock a large variety of chimney products, we can advise what may be best for your situation.
- Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm 25€
Every room with a flame based heating appliance should have a Carbon Monoxide alarm fitted.
- Moisture meter 25€
Making sure the wood you are burning is below 20% moisture content is essential for the life and efficiency of your appliance.
- Stovepipe Thermometer 15€
Using your stove without a thermometer is like driving your car without the speedometer. Attaching one of these to your stovepipe allows you to keep your appliance burning in it's optimum range, getting the most out of your fuel and sending less waste up your chimney.

General terms and conditions
Your chimney will be inspected by a professional chimney sweep assessed to national standards and registered with the Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps.
All services are carried out in good faith; brief visual inspections are carried out of the appliance and chimney, but due to the concealed nature of chimneys and associated appliances, information should not be relied upon as a guarantee that the appliance and/or chimney are safe and/or free of faults or issues related to age, misuse, or poor installation.
The chimney sweep will assume unless otherwise told by the homeowner or the person allowing him/her entry into the property that the appliance is correctly and safely installed and is in a fit state to be swept.
If a fault occurs during sweeping, this is not the fault of the sweep; for a chimney and items connected to the installation to be considered fit for use, it must be in such condition that it can be safely cleaned and tested. If damage is caused during sweeping, this suggests an underlying fault which simply was exposed by the sweeping process.
Preparation for the sweeping appointment: Appliances must not be used at all in the 24 hours leading up to an appointment. Please remove any ash/debris/other items from the fire grate so it is clear. A space of around 6ft in front of the fireplace is required, so please move any coffee tables/furniture and items from the hearth.
Pets and Children: It is your responsibility to keep pets and children supervised within the property throughout our visit. They should remain in a separate room for the duration of our visit and have a designated responsible person(s) with them at all times. We cannot accept liability for loss or injury.
Security: The sweeping process involves multiple trips to and from our vehicle. This means access doors sometimes remain open. It is the responsibility of the customer or their designated person to ensure all valuables are secure and away from the work route/area.
Débistrage: The Débistrage process involves the flailing of chains inside of a Chimney Flue. Such an abrasive process can, on rare occasion, cause damage to the Chimney. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to understand this and should any damage to the Chimney be caused from the Débistrage process, it is not the fault of the sweep.
