BEFORE coronavirus I always operated my business with strict regard to safety procedures which protect myself as well as you and your property. I use appropriate sheeting to protect floors and carpets and proper dust control measures are normal as I use a HEPA Vacuum (What is a “HEPA” Vacuum? HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuums differ from conventional vacuums in that they contain filters that are capable of trapping extremely small, micron-sized particles. A true HEPA filter can trap 99.97 percent of all airborne particles larger than 0.3 microns.. I use a proper p3 dust mask and clean gloves for every job as standard.


I now have ENHANCED protection in place:

  • When booking an appointment, I will ask you to confirm that everyone in your household has been free of coronavirus symptoms for at least 7 days and that no-one is isolating. I will confirm the same for my household.    

  • Please ensure that the route to your chimney / fire is clear and there is adequate space for me to work. Clear out any ashes and move furniture and ornaments where possible.

  • Please ventilate the room/s with open windows ahead of my visit where possible.

  • I will enter your property wearing mask and gloves. These will remain on for the duration of the visit.

  • I will observe recommended social distancing and ask that you remain in another room during the sweeping process.

  • A washed and clean sheet will be placed on your floor / carpet.

  • I will issue a certificate as usual or Digital certificate should you prefer.


  • Finally, i will remove gloves etc. and apply hand sanitiser.
