Creosote filled flue

" The Benjamin Franklin axiom that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is as true today as it was when Franklin made the quote. Although many use the quote when referring to health, Franklin actually was addressing fire safety. Franklin wrote this (courtesy of ushistory.org) under an assumed name."

One tip to prevent a chimney fire - CLEAN YOUR CHIMNEY

Fireplace and wood stove chimneys need special care. A buildup of creosote on the flue and chimney walls can cause dangerous fires. The fire can totally destroy your home, or you may be faced with damage to all contents in your house including:

  • Walls
  • Furniture
  • Flooring
  • Cabinets
  • Blinds and drapes
  • Clothes

SERVPRO can clean up the smoke, soot, and water damage but please take preventive measures so it doesn't happen to your family.
