The Risks Of Neglecting Fireplace Maintenance

When fireplaces sit unused for long periods, cleaning and maintenance can be forgotten or neglected. Gas, electric, and traditional systems require proper inspections, routine care, and repairs in order to ensure efficiency and safety during the long winter months.

  • Ignoring routine fireplace maintenance can result in costly issues and safety hazards.
  • Creosote may build up, becoming a fire hazard, or restricting airflow throughout your chimney.
  • Nesting animals or other obstruction in the chimney can create a risk for carbon monoxide poisoning in your home.
  • Pilot light failure may make it difficult or even impossible to turn on your fire when you need it.
  • A damaged thermocouple or thermopile may also make it difficult or even impossible to turn on your heat.
  • Chimney stains may occur – these can be indicative of moisture in your chimney, which will eventually affect your masonry/chimney structure.
