Putting off a chimney cleaning could have a very bad outcome. Just over the past two weeks alone, we have seen 2 chimney fires because of deferred chimney cleaning. Unfortunately, one home was a complete loss. Nothing was left except one-half of the chimney and the concrete pad.
Some fires are not completely started by the chimney. Sparks popping out onto carpet or items around the fireplace catch fire quickly. We strongly suggest the fireplace has a tight screen. Also, keep flammable items away from the opening.
Pull out your calendar and call us to schedule an inspection. Procrastination is not your friend when it comes to chimney cleaning. Your family deserves a clean and safe fire place. Also, the off season is easier to book a chimney sweep job. Plus, there are coupons that will help with the cost of the inspection.
