What you don’t know can hurt you!

The National Fire Protection Association advises that homeowners have their chimneys, fireplaces, and vents inspected at least once a year “for soundness, freedom from deposits, and correct clearances,” with cleaning, maintenance, and repairs to be done if necessary.

Many families don’t know that clothes dryers are also a leading cause of house fires, causing approximately 15,000 fires every year. Clothes dryer vents should be cleaned at least every two years to prevent fire and, in the case of a gas dryer, to prevent the production of carbon monoxide. Dryer vent cleaning can also save you money on electricity or gas costs. For more information on our dryer vent cleaning, click here

At Pozzi Chimney Sweep, we want to make sure that you and your loved ones are protected from chimney fires and carbon monoxide poisoning so that you can enjoy your heating appliance and feel safe in your home. We can inspect your chimney, fireplace, or dryer vent and then advise you on preventative measures to take and let you know if repairs are necessary. But first it’s up to you to call our fire prevention team. When it comes to house fires and carbon monoxide poisoning, it’s never worth the risk.

Why Hire Pozzi Chimney Sweep?

There are many chimney sweep companies throughout Illinois, but Pozzi Chimney Sweep stands out from the crowd. Not only are we reliable, dependable, and professional, but owner Gary Pozzi’s background as a 27-year veteran of the Aurora Fire Department shows how dedicated we are to fire prevention. Having seen the consequences of fire on a daily basis, Gary is very familiar with the causes of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning—and he knows how to prevent them. In addition, our chimney sweep company is different because Gary Pozzi does much of the sweeping and inspection work himself; thus our clients’ chimneys get personal attention from an expert with decades of experience.

Facts About Chimney and Clothes Dryer Fires

According to the U.S. Fire Administration:

  • Each year fire claims the lives of 3,500 Americans, injures 18,300, and causes billions of dollars worth of damage.
  • Heating fires account for 36% of residential home fires in rural areas every year. Often these fires are due to creosote buildup in chimneys and stovepipes. All home heating systems require regular maintenance to function safely and efficiently.
  • An estimated 2,900 clothes dryer fires in residential buildings are reported to U.S. fire departments each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss.
  • Failure to clean was the leading factor (34%) contributing to the ignition of clothes dryer fires in residential buildings.
