Having a fireplace in your home can have many benefits.  Many home buyers look for a fireplace as an added amenity when looking for a new home.  There are many benefits to having a fireplace.

  1. Fireplaces offer a cozy and warm setting for family gatherings or just getting cozy with a good book.
  2. Fireplaces offer heat and light when the electricity goes out.
  3. Fireplaces can help reduce the cost of electricity when using as a heating source.
  4. A wood burning stove can offer heat, light and also a fire to cook on.

Fireplaces can also be a fire hazard.  It is important to have the chimney cleaned and inspected regularly. 

A chimney fire can be very hot and very dangerous.  Home fires caused by a chimney fire can spread very rapidly due to the intense heat.  Slow burning chimney fires might not get enough air or fuel to be a large fire, but because of the high temperature, can cause just as much damage as a blazing fire.

If you experience a chimney or fireplace fire in your home, call SERVPRO of Medina County/Gateway/Western Lake County to clean up the soot, fire extinguisher dust or even any water damage that may occur from putting the fire out.  Call us 24/7 at 800-933-7179.
