Cleaning Your Chimney Can Help Prevent Fires
Cleaning your chimney regularly can help prevent fires within your home. But like any other important task, it’s critical for you to do the job as safely as possible. Here are three simple tips to help make cleaning your chimney easier:
1. Have the proper tools
Tools that you will need to clean your chimney include a chimney rod, chimney brush, buckets, tarps, and a flashlight. It also never hurts to have some extra duct tape around.
2. Do it before the weather turns cold
This is a job that is much easier to do during warmer weather in late summer or early fall--well before the winter burning season. Climbing on a frosted or snowy roof is extremely dangerous, so plan ahead and do your chimney cleaning before those frosty nights when a warm, cozy fire is on your mind.
2. Use the correct technique
As with most things, using the appropriate process makes chimney cleaning much easier. The following website contains a step-by-step process for cleaning your chimney:
