Chimney smoke testing is crucial to check if a flue is working efficiently and has adequate draught for the safe removal of smoke and gases. If the draught flow isn’t correct then rather than smoke travelling upwards from the fireplace it could leak from another area such as an upstairs room or an adjoining property.

Smoke testing identifies any such leaks, holes or cracks in the chimney flue protecting your home from harmful gases and a build up of carbon monoxide.
