In the same way that where there’s smoke, there’s fire: where there’s a chimney, there’s the possibility of a chimney fire. To make sure that this doesn't happen, maintenance is key. And if you can’t do it yourself, make sure to find a professional who can. Follow these steps to avoid an untimely visit from your local fire department.
- Have your chimney professionally inspected. A professional chimney sweep will not only clean your chimney but will inspect it to make sure the bricks and mortar are still in good shape. They will also inspect all parts of the chimney at the same time to ensure everything is in working order.
- Avoid softwoods. While it’s true that all wood burns, it is also true that softwoods contain sap, and that sap can stick to the sides of your chimney. That sap increases the rate of creosote that builds up, and creosote is extremely flammable.
- Use seasoned wood. We’re definitely not talking kitchen seasoning, here. Seasoned wood is wood that has been given enough time to dry out. Dry wood burns better and provides better heat. Non-seasoned wood has a harder time staying lit, and doesn't always burn completely, which can also cause a creosote build up.
- Install a chimney cap. If you don’t have a chimney cap, you need one now. Chimney caps will prevent things from getting into your chimney, like small animals, sticks, and rain. A chimney cap can also protect your roof from sparks that might make their way up the chimney with a mesh screen around the sides.
Remember; chimney fires are easily preventable. Maintenance done by a professional can keep you and your family safe throughout our colder months.
