As colder weather starts to move in many residences will start to use their fireplaces, but before you do you may want to have your chimney cleaned.
A home’s chimney carries out the dangerous smoke and gases and overtime soot builds up increasing the chances of a house fire.
Chimney fires can be explosive and can produce flames from the top of the structure.
It is recommended to have an annual inspection performed by a chimney sweep that is certified by the Chimney Safety Institute of America.
