Protect Your Property With Chimney and Fireplace Repairs

It’s easy for homeowners and property managers to forget that their chimney needs repairs. If the firebox looks OK and the brick is still intact, most people don’t think twice before lighting a fire. But did you know you could be putting your property—and your safety—at risk by skipping your annual chimney inspection?

It only takes one spark to ignite a chimney fire, which can ruin your flue and ignite a full-blown house fire. And if you don’t know what’s going on in your chimney, it’s impossible to know if you’re at risk. That’s why Approved Home Improvement’s motto is: “Don’t hope you’re safe; know you’re safe.” Whether you choose Approved for a simple chimney sweep or extensive repairs, you can be confident that your home or commercial property is protected from fire, smoke, and water damage.
