Chimneys have to endure a lot. As a result, their condition always deteriorates faster than you think. Regular firing can damage the inner workings of the chimney. If the chimney is not inspected annually, the chance of soot deposits in the flue is high, which can even cause the smoke to enter the house. Luckily Zoofy offers specialist chimney sweeps who can prevent these kinds of problems. By having your chimney inspected at least once a year, you can be sure that you can continue to stoke up safely and securely.
What can I expect during a chimney inspection?
A Zoofy chimney sweep examines your chimney from A to Z. The professional checks the connection of the flue to the stove, up to the brickwork of the chimney pipe on the roof. Our experienced chimney sweeps say that the following problems often occur:
Old lead flashing around the chimney.
Old masonry or weather damage to the masonry.
Moisture in the masonry (moisture penetration).
Narrowed flue caused by soot deposits.
Bird nests in the flue.
Less soot means less worries for later. Nowadays, chimney specialists can inspect the inside of the flue using a special camera. We are happy to put you in contact with a chimney specialist.
Zoofy is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Emergency? Then Zoofy will arrange a professional for you as soon as possible.
