“Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire”

Before you roast those chestnuts in your fireplace, chimney maintenance should be a top priority for safety in your home every year.

Don’t skip the chimney sweep and fireplace maintenance. A chimney sweep uses large, stiff brushes and other tools to dislodge creosote and soot from the interior of the chimney which build up with each use of your fireplace.

Depending on how frequently you use your fireplace, as a rule, experts say if you use your fireplace regularly (averaging twice a week through the cold months), you should have your chimney cleaned at least once every two years by a qualified and trained professional. The Chimney Safety Institute of America at http://www.csia.org is the go-to authority for finding a qualified sweep. Simply use their easy search feature.
