Chimney Cleaning

When should I clean my chimney?

It is essential to have your chimney swept on a regular basis, at least annually if you use your fire or appliance regularly to ensure safe operation of your chimney. Having Galway Chimney Cleaning sweep your chimney eliminates the build up of soot and creosote and greatly reduces the risk of chimney fire. Any of the following would suggest your chimney needs to be swept.

  • Soot dropping into the fireplace.
  • Deposits of tar visible in the chimney or stove.
  • Strong odour coming from the fireplace.
  • Smoking or draught problems.
  • Moving into a new home.
  • Birds or animal nesting.

Carbon Monoxide

Carbon Monoxide is a colourless, odourless, poisonous gas that is sometimes referred to as “the silent killer”. Toxic amounts of carbon monoxide can be produced if there is blocked or damaged flues or chimneys. Galway Chimney Cleaning can supply and install a carbon monoxide alarm in your home to ensure you and your family are protected.

Hardwood V Softwood 

YES HARDWOOD FIREWOOD IS BETTER Firstly there is still a lot of softwood firewood sold in the Irish market, most likely in nets sold in garage forecourts and whilst in recent years there has been a move towards hardwood, there may now be a move back to more softwood as prices for hardwood timber continues to rise. Firstly, its quite important to know the difference between the two types of firewood. Hardwood firewood fundamentally comes from trees that lose their leaves in the winter, so trees such as Oak, Ash, Birch etc. They are slow growing (80-100 yrs to maturity)…

Top Down Burning Method 

  The top down fire or self feeding fire is a fire building technique that’s much different than building a conventional fire. Typically, when building a fire you start out with a hand full of crumpled up newspaper and place it under small pieces of kindling. Then you add larger pieces of wood on top of the kindling followed by even larger pieces of wood. While this method works pretty well, there’s a better and even more efficient way to build a fire. The problem with the “conventional way” of building a fire is the amount of time it takes…
