In the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission report from 1996 there were over 23,000 residential fires in all fifty states related to solid fuel appliances and equipment! Most of these could have been prevented with the help of chimney sweeping professionals. The National Fire Protection Association Standard says, "Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary."
A heavy accumulation of creosote can result in chimney fires or contribute to air pollution. Removing and cleaning through a chimney sweep means removing highly combustible creosote produced by burning wood and wood products. It can also mean eliminating animal and bird nests, leaves or other debris that may block the flow of emissions from your home heating appliance. Regular cleaning and maintenance are needed to ensure you and your families safety.
