Chimney inspections necessary in fall

Gibraltar Fire and Rescue encourages all homeowners to get their chimney inspected this time of year. Winter weather is arriving early in Door County and a little time and money spent now can save homeowners in the long run. Assistant Chief Jerrad Anderson says there are advantages far beyond removing soot from last year.

 


Creosote builds up in the chimney when wood is burned. In most cases it can removed via a brush. Homes that have chimneys without insulation are the most susceptible to having problems. Third degree creosote buildup is tar-like and is concentrated fuel waiting to go up, potentially starting a fire that can engulf the entire home.
