If you own a fireplace, you are no stranger to the warming atmosphere they add to any living space. With Fall here and Winter soon approaching, families everywhere are gearing up for more frequent fireplace usage. While many cannot wait to get that first fire of the season going, it is important to schedule your annual cleaning and inspection before doing anything.
Why It’s Important
Many know that they are supposed to get regular cleanings done, but few realize just why this is so necessary. You may keep putting it off, thinking you can get by for a few more months, but this is not a wise approach to take. The longer you put off your inspection, the more harm you may cause, both for your home and family.
The fact is that dirty chimneys cause chimney fires. Blockages, creosote build-up, and more are all reasons why a chimney may catch fire, causing large amounts of damage to one’s home. Keep your family safe and allow yourself some peace of mind when lighting up your next fire by scheduling your cleaning right away.
Another reason why cleanings are important are the reduced risk of harmful toxins and fumes backing up into the home. These gases are often hard to detect, meaning your family could be at risk, without even realizing it. Schedule an inspection to ensure air is flowing through the chimney properly, and be sure that all of your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working.
