When was the last time you had a chimney cleaning?
If not properly cleaned, oil burner and gas burner chimneys can become dangerous over time. In oil burner chimneys, soot and clay can build up and prevent fumes from being vented away from your house. Gas burners, especially older ones, might have blockage from old terracotta linings, preventing ventilation. Just because you can’t see soot build-up in your gas furnace doesn’t mean there’s no corrosive or dangerous substances in your chimney.
Without the proper system to ventilate your chimney, dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide can build up and release into the air. Don’t put your family at risk by ignoring your chimneys!
Guaranteed Home Improvement’s Chimney Cleaning Services
We take great pride in our chimney cleaning services. If you have an oil burning furnace we will clean your chimney from the roof first, pushing down any debris that might be blocking your chimney. We will then disconnect the pipe from the furnace to the flue and thoroughly clean out the soot and clay from the pipe before reconnecting it to the flue. We will also inspect the interior and exterior of your chimney to make sure there are no cracks, gaps or missing joints. We won’t leave until we make sure that all fire safety hazards are taken care of and removed.
How often should my chimney be inspected and cleaned?
Since carbon monoxide is an odorless and colorless gas, it’s wise to have your gas burner or oil checked at least once a year before the cold months. The Chimney Safety Institute of America and National Fire Protection Agency recommend annual chimney inspections.
What Our Customers are Saying…
Upon your recommendation I recently had my oil burner chimney repaired/replaced by Guaranteed Chimney. They increased the size of the flue to seven inches from four inches. The negative draft is now five.
This company was very professional and reasonable in their pricing. I highly recommended them.
