Popular Maryland-based chimney sweep offers winter discounts on chimney cleaning and inspection
Silver Spring, Maryland – Chimney.com, a leading provider of chimney and fireplace services, announced this week that they are offering discounts on chimney cleaning, top closing dampers, and chimney caps. The company hopes these offers will make it easier for all residents in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC to have their chimney inspected and cleaned this year.
Creosote is a chemical found in wood burning fireplaces. This highly combustible chemical builds up over time, coating the inside of the chimney. Creosote buildup is the leading cause of chimney fires. It is recommended that homeowners have their chimney inspected and cleaned at least once a year to prevent the chance of chimney fires.
“We want people to understand how important it is to have their chimney cleaned regularly,” said Jimmy Mayo, Owner at Chimney.com. “We’ve seen the damage that chimney fires can cause and we’d like to help everyone in the Metropolitan area avoid that same fate.”
Fireplaces are responsible for approximately 25,000 house fires each year. Large chimney fires can burn explosively, often loud enough to be detected by neighbors or those inside the home. However, several smaller chimney fires go undetected each year. Due to the extreme heat produced by these slow burning fires, small fires can cause just as much damage to chimney structures as their larger versions. Regular inspection and cleaning is crucial to the prevention of chimney fires.
In addition to chimney fires, improper fireplace maintenance can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. Every year, carbon monoxide claims the lives of approximately 4,000 people. Most carbon monoxide problems occur due to improper exhausting of fumes. Regular fireplace inspection and maintenance helps prevent these problems.
