Inspect Your Fireplace!

9/29/2023 (Permalink)

It's almost that time of year again. Where the family is going to gather around the warm fireplace. But, before you throw those logs on and light it up, it's important to inspect that your fireplace and chimney are properly cleaned. If you're unsure when the last time your chimney was cleaned, you need SERVPRO of Burlington Twp./Mt. Holly!

During the spring and summer seasons, when your fireplace is not in use, a variety of things could build up in the chimney. Such as soot, leaves and sticks, or even a variety of critters! A chimney is a great place for birds, squirrels, and others to build there nests.

Always take a flashlight and do a self inspection to make sure your chimney schutte is clear of all debris. Even if you think you've done a sufficient cleaning, its always safe to have a professional come out an inspect it properly.

If you own a gas fireplace make sure all gas lines are tightly secured, and don't have any leaks. Although it may seem alright to leave it unattended, you should always turn it off when leaving your home or going to sleep. Fireplaces are nice and cozy, but if not properly cleaned and unattended to, they can become a huge fire risk for your home. SERVPRO of Burlington Twp./Mt. Holly is open 24/7, 365 days including holidays!
