Get Your Fireplace & Dryer Vent Cleaned Annually! Here's Why!

If you like to have a fire burning often, don't forget an annual, professional flue inspection and cleaning. Because I burn large amounts of wood, every fall I set a date to have my wood-burning fireplaces cleaned. This prevents flue fires, a dangerous and very real possibility.

The company I use also cleans my dryer vent which, if not cleaned, can also cause a home fire. Set up the cleaning every year at the same time so you won't forget.

This is so important, Jan Mostrom! We had our dryer vent cleaned last year and it was almost clogged completely inside the wall. Scary. Thanks for the reminder!
