Chimney Sweep For Rentals Properties
Do you own a rental property with a wood heater ?
Why your wood heater should be swept every 12 months.
1 Because you have no idea what type of wood your tenant has been burning in your wood heater.
2 Because you have no idea the wood your tenant has been burning in wood heater is wet.
If wood being burnt in wood heater is not dry seasoned hardwood, it can cause high amounts of creosote and ash to build up in the wood heater chimney flue which can lead to a chimney fire.
Another reason why your wood heater should be swept every 12 months is if your chimney flue has had a chimney fire and your tenant has not told you.
As part of my chimney sweep service I inspect all chimney flues and make sure they are in good working condition and check the flues have not split which is common if there has been a fire in the chimney flue.
These should be swept every year in Queensland for a rental property.
Open Fireplace Chimneys:
These should be swept every 3 years in Queensland for a rental property.
