How well do you know your fire safety?
More than 3,400 Americans die each year in fires and approximately 17,500 are injured. How can you be protected? Don’t rely on luck! Plan ahead to ensure your safety.
Most homeowners don’t realize that fire safety is more than making sure you dispose of your embers correctly. Your fireplace system is a complex appliance that requires maintenance. Even when it’s not lit, your gas or wood-burning appliance can be a fire risk if not properly cared for.
But Don’t Forget About Your Other Appliances
Your fireplace is not the only appliance that can lead to fires. Of course, there is the oven or stove, but don’t forget your furnaces!
Furnaces may not have chimneys, but they do have flues which are prone to build-up. This build-up or leaks can lead to home fires. The best way to protect yourself from a fire is to get an inspection and flue cleaning.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU CALL:
When you call we will have a couple questions for you.
- What is the appliance needing inspection? Is it a furnace, wood stove, or gas fireplace?
- What does the outside of the chimney look like? Is brick, stone, block, covered in siding or a metal pipe?
- Are you having any problems with your system? Campfire smell or odor, animals or birds getting in, system smokes inside the home when you use it, or water leaks?
- Are you buying or selling your home?
This information allows us to explain what our technicians will do when they come to your home and what to expect during our inspection process.
*If you don’t know these answers, it’s okay! We can help you figure it out.
You may have noticed that we don’t have prices listed with our services. That is because pricing is decided on multiple factors including the number of flues, type of appliance, etc. We are not the cheapest, but our testimonials are proof that we make our clients happy.
