Your fireplace needs regular maintenance to work safely and efficiently and many insurance companies now require evidence of annual maintenance as a condition of their policy coverage. Over time chimneys, flues and fireboxes will likely need cleaning and/or repair. Get it sorted before winter so that you can confidently light your fire in the cooler months.
We are NZHHA certified (New Zealand Home Heating Association) which means we have completed specialist training and are qualified to sweep your chimney/flue.
