If you have the GC number of the appliance I will show you the correct way to do it according to the Manufacturer's Instructions

Item 7.4, do it internally!!!!!!!
Which means do not put it down the flue.....
The boiler MUST ALWAYS be serviced as per Manufacturer's Instructions and should not be attempted unless they are on site.
If you do not have a copy you can print one from the link I sent you or he must produce his own
I assume he took the burner out to clean it as explained in the MI's?
Otherwise it is not a "service"
