Fireplace and chimney are a must-have attribute of almost every modern cottage. It is the fireplace that allows you to create the necessary comfort in the house. It’s so nice to sit in the evenings near the cracking fire. However, it should be remembered that as a result of combustion resins, ash, soot, ash are formed, while settling at the walls of the fireplace and chimney. The chimney is a technical construction that allows the removal of combustion products formed during the combustion process in a fireplace (or furnace). Therefore it is very important to monitor the condition, as well as regularly clean chimneys.
Depending on the operating frequency of the fireplace, chimney cleaning may be required at least 2 times a year. Typically, chimney cleaning is done twice before and after the heating season. It is believed that a chimney should be cleaned if the soot layer inside it is more than 2 mm. According to some European data, it is necessary to clean the chimneys once in 1-2 months.
Regular cleaning of the chimney allows for the free withdrawal of toxic combustion products, as well as carbon dioxide outside, without risk of exposure to humans. Cleaning chimneys and fireplaces also reduces the risk of fire.
Cleaning the fireplace and chimney can be done independently, but requires special skills and professional equipment. Forlane, for example, may begin a preliminary video inspection before cleaning the chimney to determine the complexity of pollution, possible blockages, chimney branches and other. Also, after cleaning the chimney and the fireplace, we can conduct a re-video inspection to get a real picture of the work done on cleaning.
Cleaning the fireplace is also a mandatory measure, and includes cleaning all interior and exterior walls of the fireplace from soot and other deposits. Cleaning the fireplace not only reduces the relevant risks, but also allows you to return the fireplace to the appropriate look. Employees of Forline will clean the fireplace quickly and qualitatively, turning your fireplace a presentable appearance, because the fireplace is a very important and prominent part of the interior of any home.
Cleaning the chimney allows you to completely remove the soot spread on the walls of the chimney, and to ensure the normal movement of combustion products and smoke from the outside of the chimney. An uncleaned chimney can cause a fire, or the entry of toxic substances inside the room. Therefore, it is important to clean the flue prophylactically, with the necessary regularity.
Forline Company carries out mechanical cleaning of chimneys. To clean the chimney, we use special flexible shafts and hard brushes that allow you to easily remove all deposits of soot inside the chimney. Brushes for cleaning the chimney are usually made of solid plastic, which allows with certainty to exclude accidental damage to the flue channel. In the case of particularly dense deposits inside the chimney, first use special scrapers for cleaning.
In the event of blockages inside the chimney (branches, nests), we carry out an additional video inspection of the chimney, after which, with the help of a metal ball, or telescopic poles, we eliminate such debris.
To clean the fireplace and chimney, Forline’s specialists use a special fireplace screen, as well as a powerful vacuum installation, which minimizes the appearance of soot and dirt inside the living room. In addition, all nearby furniture items are necessarily covered with polyethylene, excluding their contamination. This is one of the reasons why it is necessary to use the services of Forline Company to clean the chimneys.
The other is that our employees will do all the work qualitatively, quickly and at a reasonable price. As a rule, depending on the complexity of the object, cleaning the chimney takes one day.
