As log sets get older, build-up of dust, dirt, soot, and debris occurs in burners, pilots and other parts of the system. Over time, the heat can break down the metals and cause the system to smoke, burn erratically, and cause sooting on the glass.

We have been servicing gas logs in the Raleigh, Cary, Garner, Clayton and surrounding areas for the since 2005.

We check and clean the pilot assembly, making sure the electrodes are clean and providing the proper connections to ensure a smooth and proper flame. Direct vent units with the glass fronts are removed and cleaned removing soot and dust that accumulates over time.

We vacuum the unit around the controls where dust, hair and other debris tend to collect during the course of several years. We check and, if possible, remove logs to clean off dust and debris that have accumulated from use.

We service direct vent units, vent-free and the standard vented gas logs found in a lot of older homes with masonry chimneys. They can be LP or Natural Gas fired units and may have fans or blowers.
