and fireplace safety. Rest assured that Idaho Chimney Life is always current on
all recommendations from the National Fire Protection Association and the
Chimney Safety Institute of America.
On cold winter nights, what better way to spend the evening than snuggled up in
front of a cozy fire? Or even better, how about heating your home affordably all
winter long with a wood stove? To ensure both your fireplace and wood stove
work safely and efficiently, they must be inspected and cleaned regularly.
Annually, an average of 22,300 residential structure fires occur because of
issues with a fireplace, chimney, or chimney connector, totaling a lost of
$96,000,000 in residential property. Not only can a poorly maintained chimney
cause a fire, it can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. When a flue is poorly
maintained, it becomes clogged with creosote build up. When carbon monoxide
is released from the fire, the gas cannot properly exit the chimney and thus is
released into the home. The “silent killer” spreads throughout the house,
resulting in illness, hospitalization and even death. On average, 170 people die
annually from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning, primarily due to
inadequately maintained ventilation systems such as chimney or flue.
Tragedies like this can be avoided with correct upkeep and seasonal inspection.
The National Fire Protection Association recommends that homeowners have
their chimneys inspected annually. During the winter months, soot collects in
chimneys and ventilation systems and necessitates professional cleaning to
remove the build up.
During warm seasons, small animals and birds tend to build nests in chimneys.
If you build a nice fire when the cold weather returns without first ensuring that
the flue is clear of debris, your house will quickly fill with soot and smoke! That’s
a miserable way to start the fireplace season! Call Idaho Chimney Life! We will
complete an inspection of your chimney, flue and any ventilation systems and
perform any needed maintenance and guarantee that your family enjoys relaxing
moments in front of the fire when the cold sets in.

Crown: As defined by the Chimney Safety Institute of America, the “chimney
crown (also referred to as the chimney wash) is the top element of a masonry
chimney. It covers and seals the top of the chimney from the flue liner to the
chimney edge.” Over the years, chimney crowns can break down and become
damage from exposure to water, high winds, etc. If the crown is left to decline
over time, damaged crowns can result in both exterior and interior damage to
your home. If water leakage comes in contact with creosote build-up in your
flue due to crown damage, your home will fill with a highly offensive odor.
Don’t let that happen to you. Call Idaho Chimney Life and let us assess the
condition of your crown.
