Chimney Blockage Removal

Blockages are Dangerous Because your Chimney Could Be Sending Carbon Monoxide Into Your Home or Business…

Preventing carbon dioxide risks from your heating system or fireplace is a straight forward process for a trained professional. Each year many deaths are related to carbon dioxide poisoning from poor ventilation or defective equipment

Carbon monoxide is a silent, invisible threat that a homeowner is not aware of until the alarm goes off or someone is overwhelmed with the gas. While smoke backing up into the house is bad, it is easily noticed. At times blockages in your chimney create draft problems that will allow carbon dioxide to build up without necessarily adding smoke.

One of the major causes of carbon monoxide build up in the home is the use of a heating system that requires service. Oil burners, wood burning stoves and fireplaces are some of the most popular modes of heating homes and while they are unique in their own ways they all have one identical characteristic…a chimney.  The chimney is the place where draft problems need to be corrected so that dangerous situations don’t arise.

Using carbon monoxide detectors throughout the home is a wise investment but in the end they are alerting you to a situation that is a danger at that very moment. Preventing carbon monoxide is easily done with a little preparation and through the use of trained professionals who can rectify the situation.
