Fire safety is a real concern as the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) says that nearly 23,000 homes catch fire annually due to an issue with the fireplace or chimney.
One of the most common problems is a buildup of creosote, which occurs over time. This can lead to chimney fires or, in the case of severe blockage, carbon monoxide entering your home.
To keep your home safe, the CSIA recommends annual chimney inspection and sweeping. Don’t put off your peace of mind!
