Chimney Fire Damage Tips

While making a connection between something as simple as burning some wood and fire damage may seem a little extreme, there’s no question that taking some simple steps now can help you avoid safety issues and far more serious headaches as the winter heating season begins in earnest.

It’s a good idea to give your home’s system an annual chimney check.

An inspection and cleaning by a qualified professional will spot potential problems which could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning or possibly something worse and the need for fire damage restoration.

Experts recommend using seasoned firewood that was split at least 6 months to a year before. Also, avoid burning Christmas trees or treated wood.
