Are Fireplaces Safe

Fireplaces can be safe, as long as you perform the correct procedures.  It’s important to inspect your fireplace and chimney for creosote or other items such as a birds nest clogging the chimney.  Make sure your flue damper opens and closes properly, look for gaps around the edge of the damper and other obstructions.  Gas fireplaces also need some inspections and if done properly you will have a safe fireplace to enjoy for the winter season.
