Available to all areas of London and North Kent, Apex offers a comprehensive chimney CCTV survey reveals the inside of the chimney flue to check the condition for complete peace of mind.
Obstructions found during chimney cleaning can be clearly identified, without a CCTV chimney inspection these obstructions and blockages would not be visible without major intrusive works to the chimney structure.
Apex Chimney CCTV Equipment
We use the most up to date colour CCTV camera inspection equipment and technology to bring you this service and can supply corresponding information reports and a DVD of the inspection.
The CCTV chimney survey can be carried out by passing the camera upwards from the fireplace opening or from the chimney top downwards depending on safe access being available.
Chimney CCTV Preparation
Prior to carrying out a CCTV chimney inspection it is often necessary to first carry out thorough chimney sweeping of the flue concerned.
Please see below some still photos taken from past CCTV inspections showing some of the things which we have uncovered.
Chimney CCTV Survey
This CCTV inspection shows the findings after we were asked to inspect a boiler flue serving an office block about 8 storeys tall where the boiler engineer suspected that the performance of the flue was impaired. Firstly, the inspection shows where the flexible flue liner had been joined (this is not allowed) and then where the flexible liner had completely disintegrated and fallen apart. Needless to say this liner had to be replaced.
Please contact us if you’d like to discuss sorting out any of chimney related problems. We can arrange for Chimney Pots, Cowls And Birdguards, Complete Chimney Safety Inspections and of course Chimney Sweeping.
