Chimney Camera Surveys

A chimney camera inspection is a great way to understand the full structural integrity of your fireplace chimney. We offer a specialised rod camera chimney inspection service that can be used alongside or separately to a survey. The rod camera allows us to thoroughly inspect any chimney where we might otherwise not be able to. Especially good for confirming previous chimney fires.

Your survey will help ensure...

Smoke Tests

Static smoke test – checks the integrity of a flue.  When an appliance is used or a fire is lit, a static smoke test will ascertain if smoke leaks from the flue into other areas of the property.

Dynamic smoke test – checks the draw of an appliance or open fire.  In other words, when the fire is lit, a dynamic smoke test is designed to establish if the smoke escapes up the flue efficiently or if it fills the room with smoke.
