It is designed for those who have recently moved into a property and who do not have any paperwork relating to the fireplace. You can learn more about your fireplace and not risk ‘leaving it to chance’. Our New Homeowner Inspection Service includes A visual inspection of accessible parts of your installation, including the fireplace area and lower part of the flue and a ground-level check of your chimney terminal A check of your fire and its accessible internal components A full sweep of the flue serving your fire (assuming adequate access) A CCTV inspection of the flue serving your appliance A flue smoke draw test Friendly, bespoke advice on how to use your appliance effectively Paperwork documenting work undertaken and any advice/recommendations External chimney inspection with ladders (optional – additional £95) TERMS & CONDITIONS – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY Your chimney will be inspected by a professional chimney sweep assessed to the national standards. All services are carried out in good faith; brief visual inspections are carried out of the appliance and chimney, but due to the concealed nature of chimneys and associated appliances, information should not be relied upon as a guarantee that the appliance and/or chimney are safe and/or free of faults or issues related to age, misuse, or poor installation. The chimney sweep will assume unless otherwise told by the homeowner or the person allowing him/her entry into the property that the appliance is correctly and safely installed and is in a fit state to be swept. If a fault occurs during sweeping, this is not the fault of the sweep; for a chimney and items connected to the installation to be considered fit for use, it must be in such condition that it can be safely cleaned and tested. If damage is caused during sweeping, this suggests an underlying fault which simply was exposed by the sweeping process. PETS & CHILDREN It is your responsibility to keep pets and children supervised within the property throughout our visit. They should remain in a separate room for the duration of our visit and have a designated responsible person(s) with them at all times. We cannot accept liability for loss or injury. SECURITY The sweeping process involves multiple trips to and from our vehicle. This means access doors sometimes remain open. It is the responsibility of the customer or their designated person to ensure all valuables are secure and away from the work route/area.
