Keeping your boiler in good condition, and preventing full boiler breakdowns, is an important concern for many home and property owners.

But what is the importance of keeping your boiler clean? Well, here at Paul Robinson Heating and Plumbing Services, we are leading heating experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about keeping your boiler clean.

What is the importance of keeping your boiler clean?

Keeping your boiler clean is important for a number of reasons, including:

  • Removing dust and debris- small amounts of dust and debris can become trapped inside your boiler, dropping through vents or small openings. This can clog up components, the boiler fan, and pipes, and prevent the boiler from firing up or working efficiently. By cleaning the exterior of the boiler, you can reduce the opportunity for the dirt and debris to drop into the boiler, and cause an issue. This can prevent boiler problems and even prevent full boiler breakdowns.
  • Notice any issues- when cleaning the outside of your boiler, you will have the opportunity to notice any small changes, including those to the LED status light, pressure gauge or water level. This can help to identify any potential issues, quickly and easily, so that these can be resolved before a large problem occurs.

 Boiler servicing for internal boiler cleaning

As part of regular boiler servicing, the internal components of the boiler will be inspected and cleaned. This will remove any build up of deposits in the pipes, or any dirt that clogged up inside the individual components.
