Prior to sweeping, sheets will be placed on the furniture close to appliances. The appliances are covered by a soot sheet preventing any unwanted soot falling into the room.
A powerful vacuum cleaner is also used to ensure dust free cleaning. The whole process should take no longer than 45 minutes, unless nests or other blockages are found.
On completion, all dust sheets and soot is bagged up and taken away, and removed from site.
