Creosote Removal Gallery

Heavily tarred chimney with black creosote, cobwebs and other debris clearly visible in entrance to flue.

Area sheeted and an initial sweep undertaken to remove debris, soot and loose creosote from flue.

Soot and creosote removed from flue during intial sweep, although heavy deposits still visible in flue.

Flue is warmed with a heater prior to Cre-Away Pro being applied to the flue using a compressor.

Special high pressure nozzle is used to direct several kilograms of Cre-Away Pro up the flue.

After two weeks and several small controlled fires, the Cre-Away Pro has modified the remaining creosote.

The modified creosote, now dry and crumbly in texture, can be effectively removed with further sweeping.

The flue which was once at serious risk of a chimney fire is now clean and safe with the creosote removed.

CCTV Chimney Survey Gallery

Our AMAC Twin Eye Camera is a specialist chimney inspection camera with front and side lenses and variable LED lighting.

Using a monitor we can review images on site and give an immediate report to the customer or record footage for a survey report.

A full chimney survey report is a comprehensive report which details the condition of your chimney and is supplied with the CCTV footage.
