Advice or inspection (call out fees).
This is in the event that we are unable to sweep the chimney or need to attend to offer advice and guidence, this may be to measure and assess parts required or give advice on obvious installation ussues (not inc CCTV).
Due to the nature of cleaning chimneys, we can only give approximate times. Sometimes a job can take much longer than anticipated, causing us to run late. We book morning and afternoon slots only, but will be happy to call when leaving the job before you.
If Northumbria Chimney Specialists cannot obtain access to your property, a charge of £30 will be invoiced. A reminder system is in place that will remind you of appointment details. Please text or call (07814552623) or email if you are unable to allow or arrange access to your property we understand sometimes appointments need to be changed.
Preparation for the chimney sweep
Empty ash pans and fire/stove grates of any ash and unburnt fuel.
Ensure adequate working room in front of the appliance or fireplace (approx 6ft wide 5ft out into room).
