CCTV Chimney Flue Inspection (Including Sweep)

Price: £175

CCTV Chimney Inspection Cameras are a tool for identifying issues or potential issues, with your chimney flue.
Having a flue camera inspection is a must, on a new home with an existing stove / fireplace fit, or with a new installation.
This will ensure the stove / fireplace you have ‘inherited’, is safe to use.

We Sweep prior to a CCTV camera check.
This cleans the flue of the residue so, any problems are more readily identifiable…

Hetas recommend a ‘visual examination’ for all new installations.
As chimney flues have bends the only way to do this, is to put a camera inside the flue from inside the fireplace opening to the top of the chimney pot.

Blockages can prevent the safe evacuation of combusted gases. This can be very dangerous when you use your fireplace, stove or gas appliance.

This will ensure the stove / fireplace you have ‘inherited’, is safe to use.
We often find older stoves have not been fitted to the stringent regulations of 2022. A lot has changed within the industry and increased safety and efficiency measures are in place. We can bring the installation up to date.

Hetas recommend a ‘visual examination’ for all new installations.
As chimney flues have bends the only way to do this, is to put a camera inside the flue from inside the fireplace opening to the top of the chimney pot. This is recorded and performed slowly, so we can analyse in real time as well as keeping a permanent record.

If there are blockages the camera will identify them, we can also spot potential hazards which sweeping alone will not find.

Blockages can prevent the safe evacuation of combusted gases.
This can be very dangerous when you use your fireplace, stove or gas appliance.

Bird or vermin nests, masonry, chimney breaches are examples of these blockages we have can and have found.

We have tools that can clear these at the time of the sweep, if the work is more involved, we can identify exactly where in the chimney breast the issue is. We will bring this to your attention and discuss further recommended action to resolve.

Other Chimney Hazards:
Electric cables, gas pipes, wooden structures and insulating foam have all been found in chimney’s. These can be particularly hazardous and can be easily missed by just sweeping.

What to expect on the day of your Sweep

On the day of your sweep, we will arrive as close to the agreed time as possible. We will park in the pre-agreed place and come in to the house to assess what equipment we will need. Sheets will then be laid down throughout, to protect floors and furniture. Once this is done, we will start the Inspection, Sweep and, CCTV Survey if required.
Afterwards, we will thoroughly clean the work area to make sure that no residue is left over from the cleaning process.

What we ask of you before, during and after the chimney sweep

Please ensure that there is parking available. If you are in a permit-only area, please order us a temporary permit. Any parking expenses will be charged to your sweep bill.
Have cash or card ready for payment on the day. If you will not be in the house during the sweep, please ensure payment is there for us.
Provide as much information as possible before the sweep, including relevant photographs if requested. This allows us to assess the work and to be prepared before we arrive.
Please ensure adequate access to the areas where work will be carried out. This includes removing any candles, pictures or decorations from the fireplace.
Be aware of potential dangers of the work being undertaken. Children and animals should be kept away from work areas for the duration of the visit.
If Possible be available at the end of the sweep, to allow us to talk you through the results.

This is one of the Classic Fireplaces of the Victorian Era. (1837 – 1901). We hand craft our collection of mantels and can make them bespoke. There is natural grey veining in the marble. As a result, no two fireplaces are exactly the same.
