Our team of professionally trained engineers will clean your chimney, service your appliance and issue a certificate of sweeping, this will prolong the lifespan of your system and increase, safety, efficiency and reduce emissions. Whilst we clean we will also will assess the current state of your chimney system to ensure that it is safe to use – if there are issues we will recommend how they can be resolved and undertake the remedial work following on from sweeping, we are not a company who notifies you of issues then leaves you with the problem of sorting them out.
The Need for Annual Inspection
Cleaning your chimney should be an annual event – it should be seen no differently to having your boiler serviced. Cleaning your chimney every year will prevent the build-up of deposits and minimise the risk of blockages which could all lead to the possibility of a chimney fire.
By adopting a yearly cleaning service, you will benefit from an efficiently performing system whilst minimising costly repair work in the future. It is the most cost-effective service to prolong the life cycle of your chimney and fire.
Having your chimney swept at least once a year will ensure:
- That your chimney and appliance are safe to use
- That they work efficiently
- Reduce harmful emissions in the smoke
- Identify any issues and rectify before they become larger more expensive problems
- Keep your house insurance valid, its is often a stipulation of home insurance that chimneys are swept annually
- Advise on fuel usage and burning techniques to maximise economy
