How often should my chimney be professionally inspected and cleaned?
The National Fire Protection Association states, Chimneys shall be inspected at least once a year.
Where should I place smoke alarms?
Install UL Listed smoke detectors and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms outside every sleeping area and near fuel-burning appliances.
How often should I change the batteries in my smoke alarms?
Some smoke alarms will beep when batteries need to be changed, but don't rely on this. We recommend routinely changing the batteries in all smoke detectors at least twice per year. It's convenient to remember to do this in the spring and fall when you adjust your clocks for Daylight Savings Time.
How many fire extinguishers should I have?
We recommend placing a fire extinguisher on every floor of the house. It is essential to have a fire extinguisher in the kitchen and the garage. Remember to have your fire extinguishers regularly tested and replaced when necessary.

Why is annual chimney cleaning necessary?
Your chimney is an important part of your home heating system. The National Fire Protection Association’s 211: Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents, and Solid Fuel-Burning Appliances (NFPA 211) recommends an annual evaluation of all chimneys, fireplaces and vents and defines three levels of inspections. For safe and efficient operation, your chimneys should receive at least a level one inspection annually by a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep®, and maintained as needed. Each year improperly maintained chimneys cause significant numbers of injuries and deaths, and accounts for millions of dollars in property losses. Make chimney inspections a regular part of your home maintenance schedule.
