Fireplace & Chimney Inspections in Jefferson City/Columbia/Mid-Missouri

 Weather you live in Jefferson City/Columbia/Mid-Missouri or elsewhere in the world, using the home’s fireplace, stove, or even gas fired furnace for the first time is not without some risk.  The Mid-Missouri (Jefferson City and Columbia) local news reports are beginning to “heat up” with reports of home fires that are related to fireplace chimney issues.

UPDATE: Fire Damages Columbia Home | KOMU.com | Columbia, MO |  is one example of how “out of sight, out of mind” becomes “late breaking news”!

Proper cleaning and inspection of fireplace, stove, or furnace systems are highly recommended prior to the first use of the season.  Birds, squirrels, insects, and even lightning can cause un-noticed damage or obstruction to the chimney/flue system.

If you live in the Columbia, Jefferson City, or Mid-Missouri area, feel free to contact me through RobSmithPI.com, and I will gladly be of service to you and yours.
