Prevent Chimney Fires With National Chimney Safety Week

We celebrate National Chimney Safety Week every year, and this year is no different. From September 27th to October 3rd, we will be educating our chimney sweep customers on the dangers of fireplaces, and provide them with tips on reducing the risk of a chimney fire or carbon monoxide-related health emergencies.

Over 22,000 residential chimney fires occur in the United States each year, totaling over 125 million dollars worth of property damage. The Chimney Safety Institute of America wanted to make sure everyone is educated and aware of chimney fires, so they created National Chimney Safety Week. The goal of the week is to reduce the number of unwanted chimney fires by educating everyone on the latest trends in fire safety and prevention.

At Valley Chimney Sweep & Restoration, we believe chimney fire prevention is so important, and we hope our customers do too. In order to prevent chimney fires, you should hire a professional chimney sweep, like Valley Chimney to perform an inspection and cleaning.

This isn’t a do-it-yourself task, you should hire a professional chimney sweep who can regularly test the complexities of a chimney, fireplace and venting system. Schedule your chimney inspection and cleaning with Valley Chimney today and keep your family safe all year long!

“Valley Chimney has been servicing my home in Oswego, IL for three years now. The first year they recommended a heat reflector and different wood grill. What a difference that made! Now we actually get some heat in the room instead of just the ambiance! They also fixed some issues with brick and helped me save a few dollars by telling me how to remove the gas line correctly to convert to wood only. If you want a pro servicing your chimney, these are the guys to call.”
