Winter and the coldness it brings with it create the perfect opportunity to cozy up around the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. However, for this to be a fond memory and not a full-blown disaster, you need to ensure that your fireplace is safe, especially since it hasn't been used in months. For a few tips on how you can do just that, follow the guideline posted below.

How to Keep Your Fireplace Safe

  1. First of all, inspect your fireplace thoroughly. Use a flashlight to check the flue, search for filth buildup, and find any barriers in the smoke's exit.
  2. Next up, clean the chimney (you can either call an expert team or do it yourself). Just ensure that the flue is perfectly clean and that the cap at the top works well before using the chimney.
  3. When you use your chimney, remember to pay attention to anything unusual. If you notice anything at all, fix the issue promptly if you want to continue using the fireplace.
  4. If you want your chimney to remain cleaner and for the fires to last longer, burn quality woods (a.k.a. hard woods), such as maple and oak.
  5. You should also do your best to make your fireplace safer. To that end, you can install heat-proof glass doors or a stainless steel chimney liner.
  6. Finally, don't forget to get your chimney professionally inspected. Giving it those routine checks once a year will minimize the risks that may come with having a fireplace.
