One of the most dangerous and devastating things to ever happen to your home or business is a fire. Chimney fires have the potential to be the source of a devastating fire. However, they also have one of the best opportunities in regards to fire prevention.
Chimney damage related to poor maintenance, neglect or abuse creates the increased risk for a chimney and subsequent structure fire.
This is why it is important to have annual chimney inspections to identify and repair hazards that increase the potential for a fire. Chimney inspections can be one of the primary things you can do in regards to fire prevention.
The primary job of a chimney service professional is to aid in the prevention of fires related to fireplaces, wood stoves, gas, oil and coal heating systems and the chimneys that serve them.
Chimney sweeps install, clean and maintain these systems, evaluate their performance, prescribe changes to improve their performance, and educate the consumer about their safe and efficient operation.
