Fireplace Ready for Winter Image - Seattle WA - Pristine SweepsYou might have spent the spring and summer cutting and hauling firewood to prepare for winter, but that doesn’t mean you’re ready! If you haven’t taken the necessary steps to make sure your fireplace and chimney are ready for winter, you still have time. You not only need proper fuel, but you also need to have a clean, efficient, and safe chimney and fireplace.

What You Can Do

  • Start by learning how the chimney works, and you can easily troubleshoot when your chimney is just not working for you.
  • Learn about fire safety and avoid injuries and increased risk of flue fire this winter.
  • Hire a professional to install your stove, fireplace, or appliance. This insures it’s not only correctly connected, but the capacity matches that of the chimney flue and will work properly when you’re ready to light it.
  • Schedule maintenance appointments with a professional, including your chimney sweep and inspection.
