Undertaking an inspection of your chimney and fireplace provides excellent peace of mind in your new home.


Undertaking an inspection of the chimney in your new home is a great way to ensure that you can more fully understand the condition of your chimney, while also letting you know of any issues that should be addressed to help you care for your chimney over the long term.

Getting the keys to your new home is an exciting chapter, but it can also be an exhausting process, trying to learn about all of the different parts of your new home, and how things work. While your home will have undergone inspection for a home buyer report pre-sale, they unfortunately don’t offer the level of detail that you might like to understand all aspects of your new property and any issues that you should be aware of.

Our new homeowner chimney inspection service allows you to get a clearer understanding of the current condition of the chimney inside your new home, with advice offered on any maintenance or remedial issues that may be required.

We provide a visual inspection of the accessible elements of your chimney and fireplace and use a CCTV system to undertake a detailed inspection of the non-visible elements of your chimney. As well as providing a sweep of your chimney, we will also undertake a smoke draw test to ensure that your chimney and fireplace are ready for use.

Our new homeowner chimney inspection service is also well suited to homeowners who may be looking to bring a chimney back into use. Relining the flue will be an essential part of making sure your chimney is ready to use again, and bring warmth back into your home.

Barbara, Edinburgh

“The young lad who did the chimney sweep at my flat was very professional. He did a great job and kept the living room very clean. I would recommend this service to anybody and will definitely use it in the future if needed.
Many thanks”

Jenny Kury, Kinfauns

“I just wanted to email you to give recognition where it’s due. The young lad who came out today was very pleasant, professional, courteous and respectful. We felt completely safe with the COVID measures too. He kept mess to a minimum and took a lot of care when cleaning up. Gold star service! We will definitely use Fireworks again.”

Chris Munro, Drumsmittal, Inverness

“Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we were with the job you did yesterday.
It was the best clean of the chimney we have had in over 20 years.
There is a significant difference in the heat output from our radiators and a better draw from the chimney.”

Lavinia Turner, General Manager, Aldourie Castle Estate

“Very professional team, excellent service, tidy and reliable.

Very happy to recommend their services.”

Godfrey Macdonald, The Lord Macdonald

“We have used Jason Ross and Fire Work for more than eight years, both in a personal and business capacity. In total they clean at least five chimneys on a quarterly basis with care, efficiency and a complete professionalism in all aspects of their work. I cannot recommend them highly enough and wish them even greater success in the future.”

A Crossley

“Very helpful and informative sweep. Highly recommend.”

A George

“Had these guys sweep our chimney for several years, nothing is too much trouble for them. They are so helpful, polite, punctual, and tidy, you’d hardly know they’ve been.

A couple of years ago they went above and beyond when we found out we had chimney issues during a sweep, and thanks to their investigation our cottage is safe again.”
