The local experts at your service
All chimneys need to be regularly checked for safety as over time, the fumes of your fire, weather and even birds can cause ever increasing problems. These can range from breaks in the stack, broken mid-feathers in your flue blockages or even bits of or full bricks coming away inside your flue.
Often, these problems can be identified, though at times, the only way to really know is to perform a spillage test. This test allows us to see if smoke is escaping from cracks along the length of your flue.
Chimneys without checks
If smoke is escaping from your flue, it can lead to many problems from chimney flue fires to downdraught. This can lead to the silent killer carbon monoxide seeping into your room. It is our recommendation that with all used flues, solid fuel, wood burning, multi-fuel and especially gas fires, a carbon monoxide detector should be fitted.
Carbon monoxide (CO)
Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning has been an increasing theme in the last few years and it is our hope that most people have already fitted a CO detector in their homes. If you are unsure, you can give us a call today and we will be glad to provide reliable assistance in the installation of CO detectors.
Reducing the risk of carbon monoxide (CO)
There are several things that can be done to help reduce the risk of CO:
- Ensure your CO detector is properly installed and serviced at least once a year
- Ensure your flues and chimneys are regularly swept to remove any blockages
- Keep any permanent ventilation openings clear
If you are unsure and in the interests of your safety, while we are at your home sweeping your flue or chimney, take a few moments to stop us for our professional and expert opinions. For further information on carbon monoxide and the safety options you have, you can contact us for services in Saintfield, Holywood, and Lisburn.
