We strongly recommend an annual fireplace inspection for every operational fireplace, whether it’s gas, wood, pellet stoves, oil stoves, or cook stoves. If it’s been a long time since your last fireplace inspection and cleaning, there might be undetected damages. Soot buildup in the chimney or flue can lead to combustion, creating extreme temperatures within the flue that can harm brick, mortar, and metal. This presents a serious risk to the safety of your home and family.
Even if you only use your fireplace occasionally, an annual fireplace inspection is essential. It ensures your fireplace is free from obstructions such as animal nests, and it’s in good working order without any need for repairs.
