In just three days autumn will arrive, and though it’s certainly a time to enjoy the outdoors, it should also be a time to start cozying up your humble abode for the oncoming winter! And if you’re anything like us here at Mihalko’s General Contracting, cozying up your home means making sure your fireplace is in tiptop condition. That’s why,  before using your fireplace this oncoming autumn and winter, it’s important to get it cleaned and inspected.

A fireplace that sits dormant throughout the spring and summer seasons can collect dust and debris from the outdoors that, when mixed with the gunk and exhaust from last years use, can potentially create incredibly dangerous chimney clogs! It’s a scenario that can lead to homes filled with black smoke and even fire, and it’s a scenario you certainly want to avoid. And the best way to avoid it? Getting an inspection!

So, stay safe this autumn and winter. Make sure you get your fireplace and chimney inspected and clean before using it. And in the unwanted case of smoke and fire damage, call an emergency disaster service you can trust. Call a restoration company that has been serving the Johnstown PA, Latrobe PA and Altoona PA area for over 34 years. Call Mihalko’s General Contracting for your smoke and fire restoration needs.
