What is CCTV?

A standard video output allows the documentation of the inspection for example on a video recorder or a video printer.

Clean chimneys are safer for use and help the environment by assisting the complete combustion of the fuel, which in turn reduces emissions to the atmosphere.

The Sweeps` Role:

The primary job of the Chimney Sweep is to aid in the prevention of chimney fires and
reduce the risk of dangerous fume emissions from blocked heating appliances, flue ways and chimneys.

National Association of Chimney Sweeps:

1.All NACS members are fully insured and work to a code of practice
2.A certificate of chimney sweeping is issued on completion of work
3.NACS members may also provide valuable advice on operating your appliance safely and efficiently and any remedial work that might be necessary

Cleaning the chimney

1.Modern chimney sweeping is an efficient and clean process
