Chimneys keep your home protected from fire, smoke, and toxic gasses. When you use your stove or your fireplace, toxic gasses and smoke are produced, which need to be vented out so that your indoor air is not harmful to you and your loved ones. An effective and reliable chimney system also protects your property from fire hazards.
Chimneys are complicated, and you need specialists to install, repair, inspect, and clean them. This is precisely what we do. Our chimney specialists in Guildford and accredited sweeps provide all chimney solutions along with emergency services.
Our services include:
Climatic conditions, extreme weather, lack of maintenance, and time can all contribute towards the wear & tear and deterioration of the chimney’s masonry. Bricks and mortar go into the making of most traditional chimneys and they can get damaged and cracked.
Our chimney repair services cover masonry repairs, including replacement of bricks, applying fresh mortar, repairing the chimney crown, or replacing the entire installation with a new one. Damaged masonry can have detrimental effects on not just your chimney but other parts of your home. Cracks will allow rain water to seep through, contaminating your flue line and your property’s infrastructure.
Other signs such as presence of moisture or water in your fireplace, build up of creosote, and ineffective venting are also signs of masonry damage. Call our chimney contractors to get your chimney inspected and get accurate diagnosis.
A chimney has many parts including chimney cap, flue, liner, smoke shelf, damper, firebox, and several others on which your chimney’s efficiency depends.
The chimney flue plays an essential role in venting toxic gasses. For it to function properly, it has to be of the right size and it must be adequately insulated. If the insulation is damaged or the flue has worn out, the flue will transfer heat to the adjacent parts and structures, resulting in further damage. The damper is necessary for controlling draft and the airflow inside the chimney. The smoke shelf prevents gasses from backing up into your home.
All these parts require reliable repair or replacement services when they can’t function anymore and this is what we offer – reliable chimney repairs in Guildford.
Presence of water or moisture in your fireplace, build up of creosote and soot, build-up of carbon, and presence of smoke are all signs of an inefficient or damaged chimney system.
A damaged chimney can result in chimney fires, backup of toxic gasses instead of venting, carbon monoxide poisoning, among many others.
Chimney inspections by our accredited chimney sweep can identify any potential repairs or damages which can be detrimental for your health and wellbeing.
Chimney sweeps provide routine maintenance including deep cleaning of your chimney. This ensures that you chimney works efficiently and does not present any danger.
