One issue we see with gas logs and smells.

Went on gas log service call to condo with 9 year old vent free logs and the owner was saying they are getting a funny smell during operation.

We set up and started to service the logs and noticed a lot of dust on the logs and around the burners.

When gas logs are running they are moving a lot of air around them. If you have hard floors and pets the amount of dust and debris can become too much for the logs to handle and can create smells.

more dust.. WOW…  This can also create a problem with setting off smoke alarms and some times they can set off CO alarms..

As you can see in this photo dust has gotten into the pilot assembly air holes which creates problems like the logs will shut off when burning.

We use a vacuum, and hand brush to remove the dust and put the logs back together.

This take care of some issues with vent free gas logs smells. Give us a call to set you up for a gas logs cleaning and service.

    PS: if you do NOT have a Carbon Monoxide detector and you have gas logs.. GET ONE.. NOW... I recommend the combo CO / Smoke battery powered detectors at Lowe's Home depot or most hardware stores..

    If yours are over 10 yrs old replace it.. (there's a date on back) If there is not a date of manf on back GET rid of it.
