Fire & Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Are Real Risks
Whether your home is historic or a modern construction, it’s important to keep your chimney, fireplace and venting clean and clear to avoid fire hazards. If you have a fireplace and use it, flammable creosote can accumulate in your chimney and easily start a fire. Even if you don’t have a fireplace, animals, insects and debris can block the passageways in your chimney and dryer vent and ignite.
You’ve heard that carbon monoxide poisoning is the “silent killer”. It’s true. The toxic gas can seep from leaking vents and chimneys and cause an explosion, fire, and a range of health problems, from headaches and breathing problems to death.
Above & Beyond Chimney Service has the expertise to address these potentially dangerous issues and keep you safe.
