 Unless you take certain precautions, the coziness of a warm flame can quickly turn into a house fire and result in personal injury and property damage.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE:

  • Have your wood stove or fire place inspected annually by a certified chimney specialist. 
  • Have cracked or missing chimney bricks and    mortar and corroded flashing repaired. 
  • Remove ash buildup regularly and store in   a covered metal container. 
  • Never restrict air supply to wood stoves or fireplaces as it may cause the buildup of creosote and increase risk of a chimney fire. 
  • Keep the hearth free of debris and materials that may catch fire easily.

FUEL BURNING:

  • Burn only dry, well-seasoned wood to avoid creosote buildup in stovepipes and chimneys. 
  • Never use flammable liquids to start a fire as it can get out of control quickly.  
  • Make small fires that burn completely and produce less smoke. 
  • Never leave a fire unattended.
  • Ensure it is extinguished before going to bed or leaving the house. 

FIRE PROTECTION:

  • Install smoke detectors on every floor of your  home.
  • Change and test batteries at least twice a year. 
  • Keep a fire extinguisher close by and make sure everyone in your household knows how to use it
    in the event of fire.
