Your fireplace, insert and chimney should also be cleaned annually. They work hard to create the heat to warm your home. If you’re using it very regularly then the dirt will build up. We suggest getting it cleaned in the spring so you know you’ve got a fully functioning gas fire Wigan all year round.

Well the technician will always start with checking the outside of your fireplace. This is to make sure that there’s no chips, cracks, or dirt. And also to make sure that the framework is holding up. Then the gas ignition will be checked to make sure that it’s still lighting up without any issues. Often they will take off the entire face of the unit just so all the valves and connections can be checked. Then any dirt or dust creating blockages will be cleaned away. Finally, they will check that your carbon monoxide detectors are all in working order. As well as letting you know about any repairs that your fireplace may need.
