SERVPRO of Lombard/Addison is here to help enjoy the season!

Winter is here and nothing is better than gathering around the fireplace while it burning.  It's warmth and glow can create quite the ambiance.  Nevertheless, as cozy and warm as it seems, practicing safety while burning will keep the experience and memories going for a long time.  

Simple steps can be taken to prepare and maintain a fire in your fireplace:

  • Ensure the damper or vent is opened and free of debris
  • Use properly aged wood
  • Clean out ash from previous fires to assist with proper air flow
  • Have the chimney checked by a professional
  • Never leave the fire unattended
  • Keep fireplace tools out of a child's reach
  • Install a carbon monoxide detector and smoke detector to alert you in case of an accident

Remember that a warm and cozy fire in your fireplace is enjoyable as long as safety is practiced.  In case of an accident, SERVPRO of Lombard/Addison can assist with the cleanup.  While safety is of upmost importance, we know that accidents happen.  Please give us a call for assistance to get your home clean after a fire accident.  630-543-1700
