What is a CCTV Inspection?
If there's a problem with your chimney it can be extremely difficult to identify what exactly that problem is. A CCTV Inspection is the quickest, easiest and most efficient way to do so. The high quality footage captured by the CCTV is used to accurately diagnose the issue and create a repairs solution. Using the latest in CCTV cameras and technology, S.H.L Chimney Specialists carry out chimneys surveys all across Cork.
A CCTV Inspection or survey involves a CCTV camera being inserted into the chimney from the fireplace. Live feedback is viewed from a monitor which also records the footage. The camera allows for a complete and thorough inspection of the entire chimney and flue as it operated remotely and has the ability to tilt 180 degrees and pan 360 degrees. A CCTV survey can identify lots of problems such as breaches in the flue wall, blockages from poorly installed liners, birds nests, fallen debris or damage to the mid-feathers, heavy tarring and cracks or fractures.

You should consider getting a CCTV Inspection for a number of reasons.

What are the Benefits of CCTV Survey?
A CCTV Inspection or Survey is the quickest and most accurate way of diagnosing chimney problems. Using the footage your chimney specialist can easily locate the source of the issue and create a plan of action to have it repaired. By identifying a problem early on it reduces the need for larger and more expensive repairs down the line. Footage from the inspection is recorded and can be given to insurance companies if required. There is also the added benefit of a clean chimney. A chimney must be swept and cleaned thoroughly before a CCTV inspection to ensure that soot does not affect the camera lens and that the bricks can be clearly seen in the recording.
