Flamecheck Chimney services
Flamecheck have over twenty years experience in fireplace and chimney design.
Chimney cleaning and chimney sweeping - We use a rod and vacuum system, and where applicable, can powersweep chimneys and flues ,which ensures that chimneys are thoroughly cleaned with the minimum of fuss. All surrounding areas are thoroughly dustsheeted, and the utmost care taken to minimise dust. After sweeping, we carry out a flue flow test on the chimney and issue an appropiate certificate, which details our findings and recommendations.
Flue integrity testing
We are able to carry out two types of tests -
1) Open pot test - smoke is released in the fireplace opening, and higher floor levels are checked for smoke leakage. It is also checked that smoke is only exiting through one pot, and not two or more which would indicate leakage between flues. This test can be carried out as part of a normal sweep.
2) Closed pot -This is potentially a more accurate test as it involves partially closing the chimney pot, allowing more time for smoke to find cracks in the flueways. The negative is that it is more expensive as it involves us accessing the chimney stack. This type of test must be requested in advance, so that we can check access is possible with ladders.
Pots and cowls - These can be supplied and fitted by us.
Camera surveys - Our engineers carry the latest HD chimney cameras on their vans - please ask for a demonstration.
