The National Fire Protection Association "recommends an annual inspection (and cleaning if necessary) of your chimney and flue system." The N.F.P.A. is an organization which develops model building codes using data that is gathered from Fire Departments and other resources across the nation. A number of these statistics are obtained from unfortunate situations occurring daily involving fire and carbon monoxide related injuries or even loss of life.
"From my experiences as a professional firefighter, I can confirm that most of these situations could be easily prevented. It is rewarding as a C.S.I.A. Certified Sweep to reveal these hidden dangers (while performing cleanings and inspections) before they become unfortunate statistics."
Doug Sherman (owner) CSIA Certified Sweep #3324, veteran firefighter (24 years)
