All cleaning and sweeping should be taken place on the building level of the chimney and appliance and only under extreme circumstances Top Cap may access the chimney via a roof. Top Cap will use a hoover at all times when sweeping to reduce the chances of soot spillage, however under certain circumstances the hoover may produce a smell, which should be clear within 30 minutes of exiting the building if the correct ventilation is applied.
