Having your chimney cleaned regularly is a great way to ensure the most efficient fuel use in terms of cost and heat output.
Furthermore, maintaining a clean chimney will reduce the possibility of a chimney fire and aid in protecting against any harm or toxic gases you can inhale.
If you are looking for a reliable chimney cleaning service, our chimney cleaners ensure your fireplace or stove is clear of soot and debris.
Chimney cleaning is one of our primary services.
We are a professional and progressive company that uses the advanced power sweeping tools available at the Rodtech system. We cannot underestimate the importance of a clean chimney, as the chimney and the flue inside it are responsible for carrying the smoke away from the fireplace and out of the house. The benefits of a clean chimney are twofold: it helps the fireplace function efficiently and prevents the build-up of flammable creosote.
A Clean Chimney Is Safer!
One of the by-products of lighting your fire is creosote, which is carried by smoke into your chimney. Some creosote coats the chimney’s walls, and if it becomes too thick, it can catch fire.
Heavy creosote can also hinder the flow of carbon monoxide, a dangerous, odourless gas that can cause fatigue, headache or confusion, exiting through your chimneys. Continued exposure to carbon monoxide can cause permanent brain, nerve, or heart damage. If you suspect that your house is exposed to carbon monoxide, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Chimney fires can discreetly and quickly spread to other areas of the house. A clean chimney will ensure that your open fire or stove fireplace is operating at its most efficient and avoid chimney fires. It will provide the most heat while also reducing the amount of smoke that gets into the house.
How often should I clean my chimney?
We recommend twice yearly. There are also some warning signs homeowners should not ignore: a buildup of soot on the damper or chimney walls; smoke inside the home when fires are burned; a burning smell even when the fireplace isn’t being used.
The added benefit of keeping the chimney clean by a professional chimney cleaning company is that any potentially dangerous flaws that need repair can be detected.
Bringing a chimney cleaner into your house can seem like a house proud women’s nightmare, but we can assure you that we take every precaution to ensure there is no residue of dust or soot remaining when we are finished.
We cover your floor and your furniture and use a series of high-density sponges to insulate and block your chimney or stove from soot and dust whilst cleaning your chimney or stove.
