Maintain Your Fireplace
With Santa soon to make his way down chimneys all across America it’s a great time to maintain your fireplace and chimney to make sure that they are clean and safe.
Creosote, a highly flammable residue, which results from wood burning, can build up on the inside of chimney walls to present a major fire risk. A thorough sweeping of the flue will greatly reduce the chance of a chimney fire.
If you burn wood frequently, you should have a professional inspect the fireplace and chimney after each chord burned or at least once annually.
