Thanks for your kind offer, but if I did it myself and covered the front room in soot, her indoors would chop me up and feed me to our cats !

Its dead easy dave ive done it wi mi dad loads of times. The way to do it is to tape all round your fire front securely and once the first lot is done, wait for it to settle afore attempting to remove the soot. A spray bottle with water helps as long as you only spray enough to deg down as if you used too much you end up in a worse mess than the dust makes! I dont blame yer not wantin to do it yerself lad! I think I is too owd now for that sort o roarmin.
