As a home owner you are responsible to make sure your chimney and flues are kept clean and efficient to avoid potentially deadly gases and blockages.
Chimney fires are sadly still a common occurance in the UK, with over 1000 cases documented in 2012, it is a problem that can devastate families and cause huge amounts of damage. By having your Chimney swept on a regular basis and inspected for defects, you can avoid any costly repairs resulting from heat damage and protect your family.
Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odorless gas that is produced when burning fuels in chimneys and flues. If you system becomes blocked from lack of maintenance, this poisonous gas can come back into your room with deadly consiquences. A Clean Lum will inspect your system and clean it to make sure it is safe to use. We will also inspect your chimney pot at well. Often a cracked, or loose chimney pot can be overlooked, resulting in a potentially dangerous situation. We can also issue you a certificate for insurance to prove your chimney has been professionally swept and is safe to use.
We also reccomend that you install a carbon monoxide detector and place this in your home. More information can be found on the Fireservice website,
