Fireplace Servicing and maintenance
Fires and Braais provide full servicing and maintenance on fireplaces and wood stoves. We also offer full chimney sweeping services.
Where required we will replace and repair any consumables in your fireplace such as fire rope, putties, gaskets, fire bricks, aluker panels, vermiculite and glass.
Please note that during our peak fireplace installation times (May to October) our servicing appointments are limited.
We recommend servicing at the end of Winter or alternatively early Autumn or late Summer in order to ensure your servicing is done in time for the cooler months.
Servicing is important for the safety of your family and home but also as part of your fireplace and wood stove warranty requirements.
Be warm and safe this winter.
