    There is nothing more important to you than your family’s safety and well-being. You want to know that the environment provided for them is not only enjoyable and comfortable but also free of hidden dangers that could harm them. For this reason, it is important to always ensure your home’s fireplace is safe to use. Use this safety checklist to easily monitor the health of your fireplace and chimney.

    • Be on the look-out for leaks on the inside of the home near the chimney area. This includes peeling wallpaper, dampness near the chimney, and stains on the wall.
    • Monitor the area for crumbling mortar both inside and out.
    • Check that all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are in proper working order. Batteries should be replaced twice a year.
    • Be observant of how your fireplace is functioning. Taking longer to start, generating an odd odor while burning, and an increase of smoke can all be signs of a need to clean and inspect the unit.
    • Don’t forget the outside of the chimney. It should also be checking for signs of deterioration or animal infestation inside the flue.
