What is Included Whats Included in a stove service
We clean and inspect the stove fire grate or grate bars / baffle plates/ coal catcher/ ash pan & internal bricks for signs of wear and tear. Cracked fire bricks may be repaired with fire cement where appropriate. We generally replace refractory fire bricks with heat reflecting vermiculite panels. Iron fire checks that expose the stove are always replaced with like for like where parts are available.
We check that the rope seal on the door is airtight and securely attached. Over time the rope seals become depressed and hard. They can also detach from the stove or fray and require replacement when this happens.
We check the condition of the stove glass and gasket for small stress cracks, we clean the stove class with a Schott Atmosphere cleaning pad.
We check the condition of the stove bodywork for cracks and corrosion, we also check the integrity of the flue collar and the top or back blanking plate. We also polish the stove to bring it back to as close to a show room position as much as possible.
We check that the fire cement seal on the stove pipe and replace it where necessary. We check the stove connection to the flue, we also check the chimney cowl that it is appropriate and in good condition.
