Working during COVID-19

In line with the terms and conditions that were in place before 2020; for any cancellations made within 24 hours of the appointment date (that are not in line with Government guidelines), a fee will be charged to the customer to recuperate any losses to Samuel James Chimney Sweep. ​ As work could have been arranged elsewhere for that time, this can be the quoted price for the work that was booked in. By making a booking the customer agrees to these conditions.

  • The sweep will come to the door wearing the appropriate PPE.
  • The customer must inform the sweep before arrival if anyone in the household is showing any signs and/or symptoms or if any one is self isolating.
  • During the time that the chimney sweep is in the property we request that the customer adheres to social distancing.
  • A new digital certificate system has been implemented to reduce the risk of infection. We will require the customers email address to send them their certificate.
  • Payment can be received via bank transfer but this must be done whilst the sweep is still on site.
