It isn’t officially fall yet, but the leaves are changing and next, the temperatures will drop. When temperatures drop in New England, we want our customers in and around Ellicott City to be able to light their fireplaces safely. According to a 2017 report by the U.S. Fire Administration, there were 7 deaths and 26 injuries per every 1000 fires. It is our goal to bring the number of fires down in our community. The majority of home structure fires occur during winter months, and many of these fires are 100 percent preventable.
Clean Chimneys are Safe Chimneys
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the safest and most efficient chimney systems are those that are cleaned and inspected regularly. As far as chimney and fire science is concerned, efficient equals safety. We encourage all of our customers, friends, and neighbors in and around Ellicott City, Maryland to schedule chimney services before the first fire is lit this fall.
1. Chimney sweeps clean away hazards. When a chimney sweep is scheduled, a technician will clear away soot, creosote, and other debris from the system with brushes and an industrial vacuuming system.
2. Chimney sweeps include a basic inspection. Your chimney sweep is not only trained and experienced in chimney sweeping but also diagnostics. An inspection will identify hazards and necessary repairs to complete before fall.
3. Chimney sweeps prolong the life of the chimney. When the chimney is cleaned and maintained properly, the system works better, the masonry is protected against deterioration caused from soot and creosote, and there are fewer instances of smoke problems when the fireplace is in use.
