Call On Our Team of Professionals for Gas Fireplace Cleaning & Troubleshooting

Gas fireplaces are known for their convenience and ease of use. And models nowadays are more realistic than ever, offering a cozy, warm fireplace experience all without the hassle of getting flames lit, hauling wood, and getting up every so often to stoke the fire.

That said, the many benefits of gas fireplaces often cause homeowners to overlook their need for regular maintenance. The truth is that, no matter which type of appliance you own or fuel type you use, annual inspections and regular cleanings will always be a must.

And, as with wood-burning units, any sign of damage or inefficiency needs to be addressed as soon as possible to ensure the safety of your home and loved ones.

The Threat of Carbon Monoxide

What’s the biggest threat involved with using a broken-down gas unit? Carbon monoxide exposure.

Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas known for causing many deaths and hundreds of hospital visits every single year. Clearly it’s one to be wary of… the only issue is that it’s virtually impossible to smell or see, due to its colorless, odorless nature. Which means many don’t know a leak has occurred until it’s too late.

Because carbon monoxide is such a hard threat to detect, the importance of investing in regular inspections for your appliances, as well as carbon monoxide detectors in place throughout the home, can’t be stressed enough.
