Safeside Recommended to Windsor Residents

When it comes to your chimney, it is important to maintain the cleanliness for the safety of you and your family. Recently, a customer in Windsor contacted us because a friend of theirs recommended our services.  We love hearing our customers are so satisfied with our work that they recommend us to friends and family.

Chimney Declogging Windsor

chimney pipeThis particular customer called because soot was backing up to the furnace unit and onto the floor in their basement.  Luckily the furnace shut itself down without causing damage to the appliance.  We found the chimney completely clogged with soot.  The customer never realized that they should sweep the heating flues on a regular basis. In this case, we had to break into the chimney to remove a soot clog that prevented the unit from drafting and then brick it back up.  This is not a job for the average handyman; a certified chimney professional is recommended to perform such cleanings and inspections.Our client was very pleased that we were able to come out the same day we were contacted, as not only was their heat shut off, but the water heater vents into the same chimney flue, and no one likes cold showers!

Safeside Here For Your Safety

In addition to the danger and damage from backed up fine oil soot, carbon monoxide, a natural byproduct of combustion, is not able to draft up a clogged flue and could fill the basement or home to a dangerous level.  This Windsor family now knows to sweep their heating flues, especially the oil heat on a regular basis and invited us to their rental property to clean and inspect the chimney.  In order to prevent this danger and ensure your safety, call us at Safeside Chimney today!
