About Apex Chimney Sweep Services
Lee Pearce is the founder partner of Apex Chimney Sweeps. He started sweeping chimneys in London back in 1983 and was a member of the National Association of Chimney Sweeps (NACS) from 1991. Since then Lee has been heavily involved in the chimney industry and is a respected expert in this field. Originally representing the NACS, as their Safety Officer, he worked on a project with the Health & Safety Executive to construct a Guide to Health & Safety for chimney sweeps which is still in use today. Lee was the Technical Director of the NACS and has represented them on several Technical Committees including the British Standards Committee, a Chimney Experts Panel on behalf of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and at a Congress for the European Federation of Master Chimney Sweeps.
First Ever National Chimney Survey
His latest contribution on behalf of the NACS and Chimney Industry in general was to oversee, compile and publish the first ever National Chimney Survey of Faulty Flues & Terminals. The survey covered some 7560 chimneys that were visited by NACS members over an 18 week period and found 699 faulty chimney installations. This survey is currently being used by Government Departments and several other high profile institutions to help highlight problems encountered within the field.
