WHY SWEEP UP ?
Chimney sweeping removes deposits that accumulate over the years on the edges of the duct but also inside all your equipment.
The risks of intoxication, particularly carbon monoxide (6000 carbon monoxide poisonings and 300 deaths per year are identified),
Efficiency losses (1 mm of soot = 10% of energy loss),
Fuel consumption from 7 to 10%.
A chimney sweep certificate may be requested by your insurance company to certify that a fire is not the result of poor maintenance.
CLEANLINESS & QUALITY
Chimney sweeping realization
We work with all the equipment adapted to the characteristics of the current conduits. A clear and precise protocol is set up for each intervention:
protection all around the heating unit,
soot vacuum cleaner,
hedgehogs adapted to each duct (steel and polyamide / round, square or rectangular),
chimney sweeping certificate issued once the service has been paid for.
Most of the time, the tools allow us to clean from below. Depending on the ductwork, sweeping from above can be carried out and will result in a change in the basic rate.
Chimney sweeping ragulations
The Standard Departmental Health Regulations (RSDT) stipulate that indoor or outdoor flue pipes, fixed or mobile, used for the evacuation of combustion gases must:
To be maintained in a good state of maintenance and operation at all times. (This obligation is the responsibility of the owner or his representative when each tenant or occupant enters into possession).
Be periodically cleaned to ensure proper operation of the equipment, and to avoid the risk of fire and harmful gas emissions in the building, as well as particle emissions into the outside atmosphere.
Be checked (section, vacancy, continuity and chimney sweeping) and be certified watertight under normal conditions of use when heating, cooking or DHW production equipment must be connected.
The TDRS also stipulates that flue pipes usually in operation serving living quarters and ancillary business premises must be cleaned twice a year, including once during the heating period.
