A small friendly business offering a quality domestic and commercial chimney sweeping service in Warwickshire, The West Midlands & Worcestershire..
We are a fully trained and qualified member of the National Association of Chimney Sweeps (NACS)
Please see 'Areas Covered'. Out of area service is available by negotiation.
We are based in Portway just off the M42 & cover all areas within the green radius on the map shown above.
We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and quality customer service, which ensures you receive the best possible experience when we visit your property.
As professionals, we use specialist equipment for the job in hand. Heavy cotton canvas worksheets protect your flooring whilst a taylor made soot cloth is used to seal the opening whilst we sweep. Thus ensuring the soot from your chimney/flue does not escape into the room. The soot is then transferred into an industrial vacuum which possesses three layers of filtration. Soot is carcinogenic, so it's extremely important we protect our customers as well as ourselves!
SMOKE EVACUATION CHECK
A standard procedure after your chimney/flue has been swept. We need to ensure your chimney is functioning correctly before we leave. By checking visually with a non hazardous smoke pellet, we can check the smoke & harmful fumes are evacuating the appliance via your chimney & not filling your home! It can also identify many faults the chimney/flue/pots may have.
REMOVAL OF BIRDS NESTS
From time to time we sometimes look up at chimneys & see birds sitting on the pots. Well.. This is what they are most likely up to! Jackdaws & Starlings are the usual suspects for creating the nest shown. If you notice a twig or two in your fireplace that have just magically appeared, you'd be wise to contact us before you light your first fire of the season. We can efficiently remove the nest and advise you of how to prevent it happening again. Please note: We are unable to remove bird nests in the breeding season (May/June) as the eggs/chicks are protected. For more information visit the RSPB.

Is your chimney pot looking a little worse for wear or even broken? Has your flaunching degraded and is letting water into your chimney? We can supply and fit a wide range of chimney pots and also remove & re-flaunch existing pots. Call or email us for free advice and quotations.
