Feasterville-Trevose, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/30/2017 -- Above All Chimney & Masonry, a Langhorne-based company that provides masonry and chimney sweep services in Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties, wants its customers to get their chimney inspected right away.
"A lot of people wait until the winter time to use their fireplace for the first time and finally realize they have a problem. Or they wait until right before winter. Don't wait until winter starts to roll around," said Terry Suttmoeller of Above All Chimney & Masonry. "You survived the cold winter and most likely used your fireplace a lot, call us to come look at it now in the springtime, instead of waiting until November when we can get a sudden cold front."
One of the deadly dangers of a dirty chimney is carbon monoxide poisoning. Problems such as soot build up, a damaged flue liner or even debris like an animal's nest can block the passageway of a chimney. A fireplace needs oxygen in order to burn fuels completely. When the oxygen supply is limited, carbon monoxide is formed and can easily enter your home. Every year there are 20,000 to 30,000 cases of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning, leading to an estimated 500 deaths. Currently, 26 states require any kind of private dwelling to be equipped with a working carbon monoxide detector.
While a carbon monoxide detector is a great way to prevent accidental carbon monoxide poisoning, the sure way to prevent that from happening is to make sure a chimney is cleaned at least once a year, depending on the fireplace.
