GARFIELD, N.J. - Oct. 14, 2015 - PRLog -- Guardian Chimney, a chimney cleaning company serving Garfield and the surrounding areas, discusses the importance of regular chimney cleaning for fire prevention.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recently celebrated its annual fire prevention week, and Guardian Chimney took this opportunity to remind homeowners that one of the best ways to prevent a house fire is with an annual chimney cleaning.

When a fire is lit in a fireplace, there are byproducts that are left over as a result of the chemical process of a fire. A material called “creosote” can build up on the interior walls of a chimney and that can possibly catch fire and spread to the roof and the rest of the house.

Not only that, an unclean chimney can also lead to high levels of carbon monoxide in a house. Carbon monoxide is a deadly poisonous gas that is odorless, colorless and tasteless. It can make people nauseated and dizzy and can result in headaches and other painful symptoms. If your family is not evacuated immediately after high levels of carbon monoxide are detected, it could result in a fatality.

One of the best ways to ensure you and your loved ones stay safe from the threat of a house fire or carbon monoxide poisoning is with chimney cleaning done by a licensed and insured professional chimney sweep company like Guardian Chimney.

There are also other precautions homeowners can take to help decrease the risk of a house fire including: only burning wood that is fully dry and seasoned; do not start a fire with gasoline or kerosene – only dry kindling or clean newspaper should be used; do not burn a Christmas tree, magazines or cardboard and only burn large logs, not small ones.

Guardian Chimney urges homeowners to call their local chimney cleaning company to get their chimneys professionally cleaned before the cold winter weather hits. The chimney cleaning company says all chimney sweeps should be fully licensed to perform the chimney cleaning work.
