Chimney inspection an important safety measure

Chimney fires can be a shocking surprise for a homeowner, and as well a potential danger in spreading throughout the structure. So far, nine have been reported in Idaho County this year, and more are likely to occur as we weather the ongoing cold and snow of winter. Dick Straw of Straw’s Power Vac., Inc., recommends an annual inspection of your chimney, and – depending on how often you use your fireplace – a cleaning every year or so to remove creosote and soot buildup.
