About Us

T.Reid Chimney Services {T.R.C.S} is a family business based in Kilmarnock, this year being our 54th in the trade, which makes us the longest-serving sweeps in Ayrshire at the moment.
The business was originally founded by my father Tommy Reid in 1965 but since 2012, I Tom Reid, have taken it over and I’m now taking it firmly into the 21st century. Our operating area has increased, new power sweeping technology and various other new equipment have been adopted. We now use CCTV camera for inspections and I have also created this website in the hope of educating our customers.
Having always worked in the family business since being a boy, I have decades of experience and can assure you that your job is always done to the highest standards.

Services Available

The services we offer include:

  • Chimney Power Sweeping.
  • The supply and fitting (or removal) of chimney pots, anti-bird nest cages, china hats, gas caps and all other chimney coverings.
  • Birds Nest Removal.
  • Chimney stack, cleaning, cementing, pointing and painting.
  • CCTV chimney inspections.
  • We can also fit bird Anti Roosting spikes.
  • Gutter Cleaning.
  • Requests for “other” jobs are also considered and often undertaken,  so please feel free to ask if we can meet your requirements but please do not expect us to be a builder or roofer because we don’t do cheapskate versions of other trades work.

I am always happy to offer free estimates for jobs and give advice but there is lots of useful information for customers here on site in ‘ Our Articles’ (see top menu) so you should always check there first. This page is where I also regularly try to share some knowledge of all things related to the trade and announce any news or updates.

You will also find it useful and should read our “terms and conditions” which includes customer preparation for the sweeps visit. This information can be found under
“important information”
