Every year, there are about 25,000 house fires in the United States that originate within the fireplace or chimney. In most cases, these are fires that could have been avoided with regular cleaning.
While lovely to look at and providing warmth, every fire has toxic byproducts. When your fireplace and chimney are properly cleaned, these are pulled out of your home through the flue, keeping you and your loved ones safe. However, once the chimney is dirty, creosote starts to build up within the firebox, ash pit, and hearth.
When this happens, you are more likely to experience an out-of-control fire, smoke inhalation, and even dangerous levels of carbon monoxide within the home. Cleveland fireplace cleaning isn’t just about making your home look or smell better; it is a matter of safety.
