When did you last have your chimney checked? Choosing PH Olivier Chimney Sweep will provide you with a professional, comprehensive service that will offer you reassurance. Here is why.
As a family run business, we strive to offer excellent customer care. It is vital to have your chimney swept on a regular basis. This helps to prevent the risk of chimney fires and / or Carbon Monoxide emissions and helps to maintain your appliance, chimney and flue. Not having your chimney swept in accordance to HETAS and Solid Fuel Association recommendations may invalidate your insurance. *See our Chimney Sweeping Guide that you can also download.
We offer a courtesy reminder system to ensure you can keep up to date with rebooking your chimney sweep. In our busy lives it is easy to let this slip, so we do all the work for you. You will receive a reminder prior to when your chimney is next due to be swept. Whilst our reminder service has proved successful, please be aware that the onus is on the householder / owner to ensure that the chimney is swept regularly. We would recommend that in the unlikely event that you do not receive your reminder that you contact us.
PH Olivier is HETAS approved, APICS accredited, industry trained and works in accordance with the APICS code of conduct.
HETAS and APICS are both Government recognised industry bodies.
Peace of mind. On completion or work, we issue HETAS Approved Certificates that are insurance compliant.
The only way to establish whether a chimney is safe to use is to have a full inspection and chimney sweep carried out by a registered, qualified chimney sweep. If you have not had your chimney swept and certified within the last 12 months you could be at risk of chimney fire and / or Carbon Monoxide poisoning. This may also invalidate your insurance in the event of a chimney fire. We strongly recommend booking an appointment to get your chimney swept.
