Pricing

Price List

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.

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.

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.

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.

 

By making an appointment with us, you accept all above terms and conditions.
