As a chimney sweep I have achieved the National Association of Chimney Sweeps’ Chimney Sweeping (NACS) qualification.  I am also HETAS Approved Chimney Sweep and hold a National Vocational Qualification in Chimney Sweeping.  I am also a Guild of Master Chimney Sweeps approved Chimney Sweep.

About NACS (the National Association of Chimney Sweeps)

I completed my NACS qualifications in November 2014. 

The NACS was formed in 1982 as a professional Trade Association, promoting high standards for the sweeping, inspection and maintenance of chimneys.

The NACS is recommended by all major fuel organisations, including the Solid Fuel Association, HETAS (Heating Equipment Testing & Approval Scheme), and OFTEC (Oil Firing Technical Association).

NACS Members work strictly to the NACS Code of Practice © 1982 and Code of Conduct for the cleaning of chimneys.

Certificates provided

On completion of work, I issue a Certificate of Chimney Sweeping and recommend when future cleaning is necessary.
