A bird’s nest removed from an AGA

Bird's nest removal from a clay lined AGA.

The bird’s nest in this clay lined AGA was causing damp in an upstairs bedroom as well as being a potential fire hazard and could have easily caused carbon monoxide poisoning. The chimney was swept using a combination of Rotary Power Sweeping equipment including a whip head and a bird’s nest removal tool. The flue was then checked with CCTV prior to a smoke test two being completed and the issuing of a sweeping safety certificate Sweep Safe:   https://www.sweepsafe.com/   and HETAS approved https://www.hetas.co.uk/  .

Three log burners (two pictured) and a Rayburn swept in Withiel – all appliances and the rooms (cream carpets and furniture) covered with sheets… Lined flues swept with the Snaplok bullet head and flexible 8mm & 12mm Snaplock rods.

Pictures 2 and 3 show the master lounge “before sweep” and the room prepared for sweeping to mitigate against any soot egress.

Log Burner – Charlestown

Log Burner – Charlestown

A couple had recently moved into a house in Charlestown with this log burner in situ. I Swept it using Snaplock power sweeping kit – whip head and mole brush. The sweep took over 2 hours and I removed in excess of 100 litres of soot and debris via the sweeps hatch (photo 3) situated in the register plate.
Thankfully they had it swept prior to lighting it…
