An open fire is a popular installation in many homes these days, and with smokeless fuel provides a clean and attractive source of heat. It’s also a comforting sight; nothing beats coming in from the cold winter outdoors to face a beautiful open fire, providing you with all the warmth you need. There is also a great choice of designs on offer, from the traditional to the more modern alternatives, but be aware that there is something you need to consider: the matter of keeping it well-maintained for insurance purposes.
A poorly maintained fire and chimney is not only a fire hazard, but also a danger to health. You must engage the services of a professional chimney sweep to check and clean your chimney every 12 months – or more often in some cases – on order to ensure that the smoke and fumes from your chosen fuel are being carried away correctly, and that the fire is burning as it should. When we mention chimney sweeps you most likely conjure up an image akin to Victorian times, but the truth is the modern sweep is a highly skilled professional using up to the minute techniques to keep things in order.
For homes in and around the city, you can find a Liverpool chimney sweep easily, and be assured of a reputation for excellent and effective service at all times. The experts at Chimney Sweep Liverpool are all highly trained and experienced, and they will happily provide you with a free, no obligation quote for your chimney – or chimneys, should you have more than one – which we believe you will find to be very competitive indeed. A poorly maintained fire that causes damage may also invalidate your insurance, so you must be diligent at all times.
Your chimney sweep also provides a full range of services that aim to keep your home safe and sound, and your fire burning beautifully all winter. They can help with the condition of the chimney internally and externally, and provide relining services that prolong the life of your chimney necessarily. They can also perform repairs to chimneys, fires and flues, and can fit caps on your chimney pot to protect against debris and birds blocking the chimney itself. All of these services are provided at sensible prices, and offer additional peace of mind that your system is operating correctly.
The cosy feel of a warm, bright real fire is something that you can’t replicate, and once you have your certificate proving it has been checked and is safe, you can go on heating your room in the most satisfying way. To some it may be old-fashioned, yet there is a strong element of satisfaction to getting a splendid fire going and relaxing.
