Enjoy Your Woodburning Fireplace, But Keep It Safe
But how often do we think of getting those fireplaces and chimneys inspected and cleaned? We don't use them often but in Tucson we do tend to use them for years without giving a thought to potential buildups of creosote and soot inside the chimney. Those deposits occur over time and can produce a chimney fire if not cleaned.
So whether you use your fireplace on a regular basis or even just occasionally, it is a good idea to get it checked and cleaned on a regular basis.
