Regular chimney cleaning is not only a mandatory requirement, but also a prerequisite of fire safety. The most common fire accidents occur when uncleaned soot or sludge in the chimney catches fire. The price to pay in these cases is too high. Therefore, for the safety and comfort of Elektrum customers, we provide the option of receiving the services of a professional chimney sweep to ensure that chimney sweeping is performed in a timely and compliant manner.

What are the consequences of an uncleaned chimney?

Fire statistics in Latvia are alarming – several hundreds of fires break out in Latvia every year. One of the most common causes is soot that burns in chimneys. 
While operating a heating stove, deposits build up on the inner surface of the chimney, which not only reduces the efficiency of the heating appliance, but also causes the ignition of flue gases and soot, which most often results in a fire disaster. Burning soot generates high temperatures that can reach up to 1000 ºC or even more. If there are cracks in the chimney, the fire can pass through these cracks into the flammable structures of the house and cause a fire.
Prompt cleaning of the chimney and heating system can prevent this type of fire disaster.

When should chimneys and heating appliances be cleaned and how often?

Solid fuel heating appliances – fireplaces, stoves of all kinds – that do not store heat for more than three hours must be checked and cleaned prior to the heating season, which starts on 1 November, as well as once during the heating season from 1 November to 1 March. 
Solid fuel boilers, heating walls, warm air and warm water heating appliances that store heat for more than three hours must be inspected and cleaned prior to the heating season, which starts on 1 November.

What should I take into consideration when firing up a stove or a fireplace?

It is recommended to use high-quality wood and to avoid burning plastic waste. The wood must be dry – wet wood will burn poorly, the temperature of the stove will be low and the soot in the chimney will build up faster.

Oak has the highest heat output, but overheating should be avoided, as it can cause a fire disaster. Birch has a good heat output, but if the birch wood does not burn completely, its soot will form flammable plaque in the chimney. After burning birch wood, it is advisable to add several aspen logs to the stove, which will break up the soot in the chimney. Conifers have a medium heat output. It should be remembered that softwood firewood crackles and produces sparks when it burns, and is therefore unsuitable for open fires.

If wood is burning in the stove, the door must be closed and the flame must not be left unattended. Fuels and ignition agents must not be placed within 1.2 metres of the door of the stove. Do not use damaged stoves or other heating appliances!

Keep your home safe – clean your chimneys promptly. Fill in the application form and we will make sure your chimneys are always cleaned on time.
