Do you frequently (or rarely) use your fireplace? Most people in Nassau County NY either love it or hate it, but many people do use it occasionally because it is there. However, getting a chimney sweep is essential if you haven’t used it for an extended period or if you use it all the time. Creosote and other build-up can cause significant problems, such as fire, damage to the property, and carbon monoxide poisoning. While you may not believe that sweeps can be valuable, they ensure that your home’s value doesn’t go down or go to nil because of a fire or other issue.
