The warm glow of a fireplace creates a beautiful ambiance in your home or business, and is a simple pleasure enjoyed by most.
But, if not properly cleaned, maintained and serviced, a fireplace or wood burning stove can also pose a serious threat.
To keep the home fires burning safely, we recommend the following: A chimney cleaning is recommended at least once a year, but before calling the chimney cleaner, you will want to clean the ashes, soot and bricks inside the fireplace, and in the area surrounding. Check for loose or crackling bricks as well as crumbling mortar surrounding the bricks. The damper should be checked as well, for correct positioning and to ensure energy conservation and fireplace safety.
When proper measures are taken, a fireplace can be a joy for many years to come.
