While I like to think this bad habit is harmless, I know better. A clogged, dirty chimney is not only unsightly but also dangerous for my family. Since spring is almost here, I’d like you to join me for a fun Spring Cleaning challenge. We will be tackling four aspects of our home’s chimney and fireplace health – one each week.
