Don’t become another statistic – Chimney Fires Spread Quickly!
According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC), approximately 26,000 fires annually can be attributed to fireplaces and chimneys resulting in property losses of more than $120 million and 10 deaths. The Chimney Safety Institute of America recommends that homeowners regularly have their chimneys checked and cleaned by a chimney cleaning professional in order to reduce the possibility of a chimney fire.
Why should you trust just anyone with keeping your home and family safe?
Burn only dry wood. Wet wood increases creosote buildup in your chimney.
Keep combustible materials well away from the stove and chimney connector.
Ensure that there aren’t any cracks in the brick or masonry because heat can radiate from the chimney structure and causing a fire
