CHIMNEY INSPECTION AND PRE SWEEP PREPARATION
Until recently chimney sweeps only had one method to sweep chimneys, and that was the ‘Traditional’ method. As technology advanced the equipment available to the chimney sweep has increased. Advances in plastics have made rods lighter, more flexible and stronger, and new brushes made from thick nylon strands as opposed to thin bristle brushes used during traditional sweeping.
Camino offers a professional chimney sweep service and is proud to be professionally trained in both power sweeping and traditional chimney cleaning methods.
Only the highest quality equipment available is used by Camino, ensuring when we are complete your chimney is cleaned to the highest standard, your home is left as clean as when we arrived, and you are issued with your certificate of chimney sweeping
While every care is taken to prevent damage to your chimney and fireplace, the sweep cannot be held responsible for poorly maintained pot, cowls, chimney stacks or any other part of the chimney/property. Material information should always be disclosed, i.e. chimney fires, fuels used etc. Your sweep can only use their knowledge during sweeping to advise on the condition of your chimney or appliance.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR CHIMNEY SWEEP
Before your sweep arrives it would be helpful if you can follow the few simple steps below:
Do not use your appliance for 24 hours before your sweep comes
Remove all items from the mantelpiece and hearth
Remove any unburnt fuel
Either cover or remove any light furnishings or anything of value for your peace of mind
Will always lay dust sheets to protect your floors and carpets but we will not be offended if you wish to put some down as well.
We always carry protective disposable shoe covers to use when necessary.
If you see the brush emerge from your chimney pot, make a wish!
One of the most significant dangers of owning any combustion appliance is carbon monoxide, known as the silent killer. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas that is produced through the incomplete combustion of carbon-based fuels such as coal, gas, oil, smokeless fuel and wood.
Removing these fumes from the living area is one of the primary purposes of your chimney. If your chimney is failing to work correctly, inhaling carbon monoxide can be extremely dangerous.
Signs & Symptoms
The physical symptoms of breathing carbon monoxide will vary dependant on the amount of contamination of the blood.
Early symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to those of typical flu, loss of memory and concentration so not easy to identify. Often the person will mention that they feel better when they are out of the house but feel unwell again on their return. Prolonged exposure or high levels of carbon monoxide will result in death.
If you are in any doubt, you should seek urgent medical advice.
