Fire Prevention

did you know?
73% of Heating Fires and 25% of all residential fires are caused by failure to clean out creosote.
An ounce of prevention is worth a ound of cure

The best way to prevent heating system fires and carbon monoxide is through regular inspections. We have the equipment and knowledge for your fire prevention inspections. We provide you with fireplace and flue surveys, Chim-Scan inspections and smoke tests. You can be sure you aren’t unknowingly using a risky chimney, fireplace or vent.

Do you remember the last time you had your heating chimney cleaned? How about the clothes dryer vent or the fireplace? All these systems are considered low risk if they are clean and up to code. They are designed for moderate to heavy use for up to 1 year with inspections. If you don’t remember the last inspection it’s important to schedule an inspection before use.

The National Fire Protection Association Standard 211 says, “Chimneys, fireplaces, and vents shall be inspected at least once a year for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances. Cleaning, maintenance, and repairs shall be done if necessary.”

The cure for heating fires or carbon monoxide spills isn’t easy to swallow. If an incident has occurred, it might mean expensive repair bills, injury or loss of life. The annual inspection is the best fire prevention method to prevent these hazards. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is as true today as it ever was.

We’re the experts on design, construction, evaluation, maintenance and repairs of chimney and venting systems.¬† Give us a call and schedule a complete inspection for your home or business.
