The evenings are getting colder, there's a nip in the air and everyon is thinking about starting or turning on the fireplace.
So, is your fireplace SAFE?
Have your chimney and fireplace vents inspected and cleaned at least once a year. You think well I don't use it very much it should be OK. Did you know that fireplaces ad dryer vents cause almost 50% of home fires.
So have it inspected it could have deterioration or animals may have moved in.
You may have to fix the mortar or bricks around your fireplace, have a professional inspect and repair, and stay SAFE.
