NACS approved Chimney Sweep in Marple, Stockport
David Qualter is a NACS approved Chimney sweep based in Marple in Stockport. As well as sweeping chimneys around the Stockport, Greater Manchester and East Cheshire areas we also provide a stove servicing and sales service. Now is a good time to get your stove checked and ensure that all parts are in good condition. As part of our chimney sweep service we will always check that the stove rope seals and firebricks are in good condition and can order spare parts where required.
We can check and maintain your stove at the same time as we sweep it!
The cold spell continues! This has been a very busy week for David Qualter - cleaning chimneys around the Manchester areas of Didsbury, Sale and Chorlton. We are often asked to service the stove during our visit: this may include replacing the stove rope seals or replacing the glass or firebricks. Often we are able to do the rope seals but we may need to return to fit items for the stove. When booking your chimney sweep it is worth having a look at what parts you might need. If you then let us know the make and model number we can order a part for you and fit it when we arrive to do the chimney sweep.
Sweeping Chimneys across Stockport
The New Year is underway and this week I have been busy sweeping chimneys across Stockport including: Heaton Moor, Bramhall and Marple. A number of customers have recently moved houses and so ensuring that all of the flues in the house are clear and safe to use or ready to be capped if not in use. This makes a lot of sense and can save money in the long term as serious problems can result with flues that are not clear. I always provide a discount for multiple sweeps and can advise on the installation of a stove or open appliance whilst there. Call the Marple Chimney Sweep Service if you need a Chimney Sweep in Stockport as the winter draws in.
Clean Sweep across Stockport for New Year 2015
New Year is upon us and many of my customers are choosing this time to get their chimneys swept ready for what is usually the coldest time of the year. This week, I have been to a number of houses in The Stockport area and have swept Twin wall flue systems, Lined chimneys and open fires. It is around this time of year when many people notice that their chimney is smoking or not drawing as well as it should. This is often remedied by sweeping.
It's crucial that chimneys are swept once a year to avoid dangerous build-ups
When undertaking a sweep, I also look to ensure that there are no blockages in the flue or other defects such as incorrect chimney terminals and provide advice and options for addressing any problems. More and more people in Stockport area are getting log burners installed - this is great news as they are very efficient and a green way of heating your home. However, it is important to remember that the flue needs sweeping at least once a year to avoid possibly dangerous build-up of deposits and potential blockages.
