What Chimney Services do we Provide in Folkestone?
South East Kent Chimney Sweeps happily provide the following services throughout homes and businesses in Folkestone, Kent:
At South East Kent Chimney Sweeps a "chimney sweep" is not simply having your chimney quickly cleaned. A visit from our team includes:
- > A full visual inspection of both the interior and exterior of your chimney
- > A smoke pressure test
- > A power sweep
- > A certificate on completion
Where a smoke pressure test is possible we check the integrity of the chimney. This makes sure smoke passing through the chimney can’t leak through any cracks or damage into other rooms in the same property (or adjoining properties). There are many properties in Folkestone that are well over 100 years old and the inside of a chimney is often the only part of a home that is not regularly maintained as it is mostly inaccessible.
For power sweeping, we use the award-winning, industry-approved Rodtech Power Sweeping equipment.
As a member of HETAS we will supply an insurance-approved certificate for every chimney swept.

Chimney Repair Services for Folkestone
Over time your external chimney stack can deteriorate, which can lead to unsafe and potentially costly structural problems, which can be avoided with some simple remedial work.
Any deterioration of the pointing to the brickwork, concrete caps, rendering and flashings can allow the ingress of water, which can freeze in the winter, expand and begin the process of dislodging brickwork and chimney pots. Eventually, this will cause the stack to slant, leak and fail. By attending to appropriate repairs over time, potentially expensive restorations can be avoided.
