Why should I chose a Guild Registered Chimney Sweep?
Guild sweeps undertake an extensive training and assessment process and are required to attend Continuous Professional Development ensuring the highest standards are maintained. Guild membership requires members to hold a comprehensive Public Liability insurance and members are fully experienced and equipped to deal with all aspects of chimney sweeping. All members of the Guild are fully supported and have access to technical support helping to immediately resolve any customer problems should they arise. In the unlikely event your Guild sweep is unable help you, they should be able to recommend someone who can.
Does it make mess?
It is important to me that I work to the highest standards which means I keep myself and my equipment clean and am respectful of client’s homes. I follow best practices during the sweeping, covering floor surfaces to ensure that I leave your house as absolutely clean as is possible and all soot deposits are removed from the premises. There may of course be exceptions but this would be discussed with any client prior to any work carried out.
What should I do to prepare for the sweep’s visit?
A clear passage to the chimney and adequate space to work in is required. Clear fire irons and baskets/buckets from the hearth and ornaments from the mantelpiece and clear and remove any fuel / ash / rubbish from the grate.
