David Balchin Chimney Sweep – Coronavirus ‘COVID-19’ Policy

You will all be aware of the viral pandemic that is affecting the nation.

Please read carefully the following policy advice regarding getting and keeping your chimney sweep appointment.

Notes

I am often called upon to work with Biomass chimneys on farms, as this is essential for food production, I will give this work priority.

Chimney sweeping is in many cases an essential part of home maintenance in North Devon. Delaying may increase the risk to your safety and that of the people around you.

You should not try to delay your normal chimney sweeping time as waiting until Autumn will mean Chimney Sweeps will be inundated and unable to cope with demand.

Due to the nature of my work, I have always worn a high degree of personal protection equipment and clean my hands and face with anti-bacterial products between jobs anyway.

IF YOU WISH TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH ME

Please do so if you and the persons in your household are not showing symptoms of the COVID-19 virus. If I find that I have symptoms, then I will have to delay your appointment by up to three weeks.

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH ME

Your appointment will remain, as long as I am free of symptoms. If you or a member of your household start to show symptoms, then you should contact me as soon as possible to delay the appointment for three weeks.

IF HM GOVERNMENT IMPOSE RESTRICTIONS ON TRAVEL

Notwithstanding the above, a so-called ‘lockdown’ seems likely in the coming months. If so, it may be the case that people cannot travel for certain reasons. If this does not include essential work, your appointment is still sound. Chimney sweeping is a part of your house safety and is in many cases essential.

IF YOU OR AN ELDERLY PERSON NEED MY SERVICES IN AN EMERGENCY AND ARE SHOWING SYMPTOMS OF COVID–19

Please contact me and I will advise.
