This year, National Chimney Safety Week is September 28 through October 4. The Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) sponsors this event every year to raise public awareness on chimney safety. Chimney fires result in billions of dollars in damages to structures every year, and many of these fires are preventable. We offer services like chimney inspection in Bergen County, so we are well versed on what it takes to keep your chimney safe.
Getting an annual chimney inspection is the best way to make sure your chimney stays safe and is in good working order. A chimney inspection could save lives and money in the long run. When you get a chimney inspection done by one of the CSIA-certified professionals here at Guardian Chimney, you get the peace of mind you deserve that your family, home and belongings are safe from the threat of a fire.
A common misconception about chimney inspections and chimney cleaning is that only wood-burning chimneys need these services. However, almost all heating appliances rely on your chimney to get toxic gases out of your home safely so they do not affect the health of anyone who is living there. So even if the appliance burns gas, oil or coal, your chimney should be regularly inspected by professionals like the ones at Guardian Chimney.
A chimney inspection doesn’t just safeguard you against a chimney fire either. It can also help ensure toxic gases are not building up in your home.
If your home has had a chimney fire, you should also give us a call so we can come out and do a chimney inspection. If you don’t have it inspected after a fire, this could lead to yet another fire and compromise the integrity of the structure.
