Read this article which is all about the importance of chimney maintenance safety!Sometimes I struggle with ideas for things to write about on booneyliving.com but today I’m writing about something that’s quite serious and something that recently struck very close to home. For those of you that have wood stoves to heat your homes with, you probably realize that one of the most important safety measures that you can take is to ensure that your chimney is clean and free from creosote to prevent chimney fires.
