Chimney CCTV Inspections.

Sweepover has the capacity to conduct CCTV inspections on all types of chimney or liners.  Sweepover uses a compact and highly portable camera system with full recording and playback capabilities for use in chimneys ducts and pipes. It has 10 LEDs or IR lights which allow colour or black and white recording.  It is purpose built for the chimney professional and designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom.

I can also provide my customers with a copy of the video, still images and a written report as required. To the right is an example of the quality of the still images produced and a short video.

A Modern Chimney Less than 12 Years Old.

Wire mesh with bird nest.

The Rod in the centre is where a previous sweep had got his rods stuck in the wire mesh. The customer is now able to have the necessary building work carried out to remove the wire mesh and then call me back to sweep the chimney properly.
