Recently had a couple of jobs sweeping and carrying out video inspection of chimney flues prior to installation of stoves for a regional initiative replacing open fires with more efficient means for heating.
Again, this work found me travelling a fair distance from Applecross; Portree to be exact! Still, I can only see the benfits in doing this work, after all, in the future these chimneys will all need to be swept again ;-)
One chimney obviously hadn't been swept for a wee while and when I had finished sweeping the soot was up to the top of the back boiler!
Good job it was a large square flue or there would have been some pretty serious fire action happening with this much soot!
