Full Smoke Sound Testing

E-mail Print PDF
If you are having problems with your chimney we are here to help. If after a CCTV Inspection a fault is still not identified, a full smoke sound test may be required.

The purpose of chimney smoke testing is to establish whether or not a chimney flue is sound and fit for use and has adequate drought to ensure the safe removal of smoke and to ensure that the combustion gasses evacuate from the fireplace upwards and out through the chimney pot and not leak into any other areas which surround the chimney system.

The smoke test will identify cracks and leaks in the chimney flue which if unidentified could result in harmful gasses and Carbon Monoxide (Co) leaking into your home or that of a neighbour.

The smoke testing is carried out in accordance with the relevant Building Regulations and British and European Standards. It is a requirement prior to smoke testing to first sweep the chimney to ensure that it is clear and free from soot which could block existing cracks in the chimney flue.
