Fireplace Safety

Think twice when you cuddle up to your significant other by the fireplace this Valentine’s Day. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, fireplace and chimneys cause more than 25,000 house fires every year, resulting in at least 10 deaths annually.  Hazards of fireplace operations include:

– Chimney fires
– Harmful particles in smoke
– CO2 seeping into the house
– Sparks setting fire to rugs or furniture
– flammable materials placed too close to the fireplace

Routine maintenance and careful use of the fireplace can decrease these dangers and allow you to use your fireplace in safer conditions. (NOTE: More about fireplace cleaning and maintenance tips next week)

More ways you can lower your risk when using your fireplace is to:

– Have a spark arrester installed at the top of the flue guard against roof fires
– Have a fire extinguisher near by
– Place smoke detectors on every level of your home
– Install a carbon monoxide detector
– Keep all combustibles a safe distance away from the fireplace
– Prevent sparks by using a fire screen

Happy Valentine's Day!
