CCTV Inspections

CCTV Chimney Inspection Cameras are a fantastic tool for identifying issues or potential issues, with your chimney flue. Having a flue camera inspection, especially on a new home or with a new installation is a must.

We Sweep prior to a CCTV camera check, this ensures any problems are more readily identifiable.

Hetas recommend a ‘visual examination’ for all new installations.
As chimney flues have bends, the only way to do this, is to put a camera up and record the whole of the flue to the top of the pot. This is performed slowly, so we can inspect in real time and then again slowly as part of our homework.

If there are blockages the camera can identify them, the camera can also spot potential hazards which sweeping alone will not find.

Blockages which can prevent the safe evacuation of combusted gases. This can be very dangerous when you use your fireplace, stove or gas appliance.

Bird or vermin nests, masonry, chimney breaches are examples of these blockages we have found.
We have tools that can clear these at times, if not we can identify exactly where in the chimney breast the issue is.

Electric cables, gas pipes, wooden structures and insulating foam have all been found.  These can be particularly hazardous and can be easily missed by just sweeping.

 

On the day of your sweep, we will arrive as close to the agreed time as possible. We will park in the pre-agreed place and come in to the house to assess what equipment we will need. Sheets will then be laid down throughout, to protect floors and furniture. Once this is done, we will start the Inspection, Sweep and, CCTV Survey if required.
Afterwards, we will thoroughly clean the work area to make sure that no residue is left over from the cleaning process.
