Just Clean provides a chimney cleaning service in Galway using the latest cleaning methods and processes while striving to ensure the safety of families in their home.
Safety inspections of flues should be carried out on annual basis for any soot deposits or debris blockages which could lead to dangerous carbon monoxide poisoning.
Our chimney sweep can clean and inspect your chimney to ensure that the smoke and carbon monoxide can be expelled freely. The high-power vacuum we use for all chimney cleaning ensures no dirt or dust escapes into your home.
Burning wood creates unburned by-products of incomplete combustion which travel up in the chimney before collecting on the inside of your chimney when gases cool as creosote.
The normal temperature inside a chimney when exhausting wood smoke is 300 to 500 degrees. However, when dangerous levels of creosote build-up in the flue, (this level may be as small as 1/8 inch) and a chimney fire occurs, the temperature can increase to 1500 - 2000 degrees.
These dangerously high temperatures can cause flue liners to crack or shatter, metal chimney liners to buckle or split open, chimneys may split open, and the thermal shock created by the instant jump in temperature can blow bricks out of a chimney. With the integrity of the chimney compromised there is a chance that your home could catch on fire.
Many times chimney fires can start in the attic where you don't see it until it's too late. Chimney fires can also cause flaming creosote to fly out of your chimney top and on to your roof or adjacent trees. The best way to prevent a chimney fire and damage to your chimney or home is to organise chimney cleaning with Just Clean.
How frequently should chimney cleaning be completed?
This will depend on the type of appliance in your property. Gas and oil chimneys should be cleaned once a year, while wood and smokeless coal chimneys should be cleaned at least once a year. Bitumous coal chimneys should be cleaned at least twice a year.
