Why should you use a NACS Chimney Sweep?

"Helping to protect the consumer"

On completion of work a NACS chimney sweep completes all safety checks and issues a Certificate of Chimney Sweeping to be signed by the customer and also recommends when future cleaning is necessary.

As a NACS Chimney Sweep I have undertaken a rigorous training course and successfully completed a full assessment prior to becoming a NACS Chimney Sweep Member.  All NACS Chimney Sweep Members must hold valid insurance for Chimney Sweeping, of which they provide a copy of to the Association on an annual basis.  They must also have the correct equipment to be able to undertake the job which is checked at the time of their assessment.

As a NACS chimney sweep we work strictly to the NACS Code of Practice © 1982 and Code of Conduct for the cleaning of chimneys.
















* Prices start from £55 with a 10% discount for multiple sweeps or if you can book with your neighbours.


* Every precaution will be made to leave your home as I found it. This involves using 'walk in' sheets and hearth sheets to cover your surfaces before sweeping commences.

I use the best approved HEPA three stage filtered vacuum for a professional clean and tidy chimney sweep.


* During the breeding season (March - August) nests cannot be removed if birds are incubating eggs or caring for young.

* Gas fires generally will require a qualified gas engineer to disconnect and reconnect the gas before and after the flue sweeping. Please call if in doubt.

* Your chimney is designed to withstand sweeping as part of its routine maintenance. If for any reason faulty pots, cowls, brickwork, linings or components become dislodged during this process Virgo Chimney Sweep cannot accept responsibility for these occurrences.




        Difficult access or parking?                                                                                                    .



Urban areas with difficult parking.

I use a very compact small van that parks in tight spaces but I may need a temporary permit for about an hour. Please advise when calling about the chimney sweep.

Sarah from Sindlesham

I would highly recommend Paul, he was easy to contact, arrived promptly and did a great job with no mess whatsoever. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful and I will certainly use him again.

Pauline from Chazey Heath

Many thanks for coming at such short notice for my ‘chimney emergency’ which was dealt with confidence, efficiency and a very friendly manner. I will contact you again – hopefully it will just be a routine chimney sweep!


Bredon from Theale

Great service! Prompt appointment, arrived on time and swept flue (log burner). There was no mess and everything was left clean and tidy. Will definitely use Paul as a chimney sweep again.


Martin from Finchampstead

As it was the first time that the flue of our Wood Burner had been swept we were a little apprehensive but Paul quickly put us at ease.

The process was efficient and clean. Paul also provided some expert advice and maintenance on the stove itself.
We are looking forward to a cosy winter!


Claire from Goring

Professional, efficient. Paul is very knowledegable and helpful.
