About Us

When you get your chimney swept by T. Reid Chimney Services {T.R.C.S} you can rest assured you have had your work done to the highest standards and at the best cost effective rate in Ayrshire. Getting your flue serviced regularly gives you peace of mind because you know your appliance is running at top efficiency and no problems are likely to occur. 

A family business based in Kilmarnock, this is our 56th year in the trade making us the most experienced and longest-serving professional sweeps in Ayrshire. Mr T Reid Snr founded T.R.C.S back in 1965 after he had learned the trade whilst working for Kilmarnock & Loudon borough council. So when they stopped providing their free sweep service as part of  tenancy agreements; a niche presented itself, which he grew to give our family a modest living for the next 46 years.

In 2012,  Tom Reid took over T.R.C.S. and has been steering it firmly into the 21st century ever since. Tom underwent full professional (City & Guilds accredited) training in, “advanced fault finding and modern power sweeping methods” keeping himself current in today’s modern sweeping world.

New services have been created and our working area range has been increased. We now use an infra-red CCTV camera for inspections and new efficient power sweeping equipment. Tom has built and runs this web site & our Facebook page.
