Maintaining The Chimney Of Your Wood-burning Stove
Before the heating season each year, check and clean your chimney and stove pipe
carefully and make any needed repairs. More frequent checks are advisable if you
are building up soot. Unless you are an experienced and confident do-it-yourselfer,
think twice before trying to clean your own chimney -- you may damage your chimney
lining. Instead, spend some money on professional service. Spending the extra money
now may save you thousands of dollars in potential fire damage.
