With the temps feeling like fall, it's almost time to fire up your wood-burning fireplace for the first time this season.
Do you remember when it was last inspected and cleaned?
If chimneys aren't properly maintained, they build up creosote that can catch on fire and can escalate into an all-out house fire very quickly.
Chimney fires are largely preventable with ...
... proper maintenance, and employing the services of a chimney sweep can be done at a reasonable cost.
Inspection and cleaning can cost less than $100 if the chimney has been well maintained or upwards of $800 if it has heavy build-up.
These services are well worth the cost compared to the cost of damage that results from a chimney fire. The average increase in homeowners insurance as a result of a chimney fire can be almost 30%.
Protect one of your greatest assets with proper maintenance and adequate insurance coverage.
