Reasons to get your Chimney Swept. 

1.Why you’re chimney/flue should be cleaned on a regular basis. 

There are a number of reasons: 

It clears creosote/soot deposits within the chimney therefore reducing the risk of a chimney fire and allows for proper venting of dangerous combustion gases. 

2. Are chimney fires a common occurrence? 

In short the answer is yes. The latest statistics that are available from the department of environment show that in 2006 the Irish Fire Service attended 9,394 domestic fires an increase of 2.5% on 2005. Of these 9,394 fires 5,695 were chimney fires an increase of more than 2.8% on the 2005 figure. In 2006 there were 3 fatalities resulting form chimney/solid fuel appliance fires. This accounts for 7% of all fatalities in all fires attended by the Irish Fire Services. 

3. What is Carbon Monoxide? 

Carbon Monoxide is a colourless, odourless, tasteless gas, produced during the incomplete combustion of carbon-based fuels such as wood, coal, gas and oil. It is harmful if inhaled and may result in death if present in sufficient quantities or if a person is exposed for a sufficient length of time or over a protracted period. We would recommend that all properties having stoves fitted should have a carbon monoxide detector fitted when the stove is been installed. If the alarms sound the best advice is to turn off the appliance in the case of oil or gas and for solid fuel just let it burn through, vacate, ventilate and have a professional investigate the cause of the alarm. When we service a stove we fit a patch detector as part of the service. For more information on Carbon Monoxide click here. 

4. I have a stove but no cleaning access. 
No problem, We should be able to sweep up through the baffle plate, if not we can fit an access door in your stove pipe, see the video below as an example.
