Newton Abbot Chimney Sweep advises on regular chimney sweeping of all your appliances.
The inevitable build up of soot in any chimney which is in use will restrict the flow smoke out of your home and ultimately will result in smoke entering the room. Smoke contains among other things fine dust particulates and poisonous carbon monoxide gas . Soot deposits within the chimney are an additional fire risk as this is a flammable material and can when present in sufficient amounts be ignited through sparks or scraps of half burnt paper rising up the chimney. This scenario is to be avoided by contacting Newton Abbot Chimney Sweep, ProSweep.
Should the chimney catch fire your entire home can be at risk as the internal temperature will rise significantly –
Emergency services will in either case douse the property with copious amounts of water. If the fire is within the chimney itself and hasn’t yet spread further, water will be pumped down the chimney from the roof in most cases. The resulting mess of many gallons of sooty water and debris pouring into the room from the fireplace / log burner would ruin carpets and furnishings costing many pounds to replace.
Any chimney swept with regularly by ProSweep, a Newton Abbot Chimney Sweep is extremely unlikely to ever catch fire. In addition the clean flue will help the fuel burn better and allow for the free flow of flue gasses away from the grate and via the pot to easily escape unhindered.
