J O’ Connor services specialize in Chimney Sweeping using the Rodtech System which is a form of Power Sweeping. Unlike traditional sweeping, with Power Sweeping you get:
The cleanest sweep – the brush head expands to suit the flue giving maximum reach.
A safer sweep – traditional sweeps can damage the structure of your chimney.
Why should you get your chimney swept?
Having your chimney swept on a regular basis reduces the risk of chimney fires and allows for proper venting of dangerous combustion gases, for example reducing the risk of carbon monoxide in your home.
Chimney fires – How common are they?
Latest statistics from the department of the environment show that there were almost 4,000 fires in Ireland in 2012, the caus of whch was the chimney, flue and soot.
This is the most common cause of household fires and accounted for more than 1/4 of all fires attended by the Fire Brigade.
Carbon Monoxide – How much risk is there?
Carbon Monoxide is a common, colorless, odorless, tasteless gas, produced during the combustion of carbon based fuels such as wood, coal, gas and oil. It is extremely harmful if inhaled and may result in death if present in sufficient quantities or if a person is exposed for a sufficient length of time or over a protracted period. Two people die each year in Ireland specifically from Carbon Monoxide poisoning relating to home heating problems.
