Fireplace Safety

Posted on October 23rd, 2013 by Alert Protective

Fireplaces evoke images of cozy warmth, a pretty flame – and, perhaps, even a little romance. But, fireplaces and chimneys can be dangerous if they’re poorly maintained.

Many people believe they only need to have their chimneys cleaned and inspected if they burn wood in their fireplace. But the truth is that all of your home’s heating systems – whether using wood, coal, pellets, propane or natural gas – rely on the chimney to safely carry toxic gases out of the house. Chimney and fireplace maintenance – especially in older homes – should be done every year to check for residue build-up, structural deterioration, moisture damage, as well as the possibility of animal nests.

The cost to have a certified chimney sweep clean and inspect a chimney/fireplace is often less than $100. Regular inspection, cleaning and maintenance can eliminate fire and poisonous gas hazards, and help ensure that your fireplace is a safe and secure source of comfort and pleasure.
