Why Clean the ChimneyChimney Swept for a safe holiday season

The fireplace is easily the focal point of your home and especially during the holidays. It’s the backdrop to family festivities, gift exchanges, chestnuts, and marshmallows roasting, and family photos. You can’t go wrong when you maintain the fireplace properly, especially during this time of year. A dirty fireplace will work poorly, be more difficult to light and to reach the desired temperature, and will be stinky and smoky at the worst times. Most importantly, a dirty chimney will be dangerous. Both the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommend routine chimney maintenance for the safest and most efficient fireplaces and chimney systems possible. Neglect of the system will always eventually lead to damage and fire.
